It's A Wrap!

It's a wrap!

After twelve months of filming and with hours (and terabytes) of footage in hand, we've finally completed the filming phase for Tested. Thanks to everyone who's pitched in to get us this far! That includes all of our crew, advisors, Kickstarter and other donors, families, and friends.

With your support, we hired an editor in January who started the arduous process of taking raw footage and turning it into something that sings.

To get preliminary feedback, we showed a very rough 20-minute clip at education conferences in Wisconsin, California and North Carolina. The response was fantastically encouraging:

Teach for America in NYC has offered to host a big screening for their staff and alumni and to use the film as part of their orientation for new teachers. And several colleges have already signed up to host screenings once the film is done....

For the next few months, we'll be:
  • editing the footage
  • scoring the film with original music
  • fundraising
  • building up our website
  • compiling lists of more places to screen the film
  • planning for festival submissions
and more.

If you can help (or know anyone else who can), please feel free to send them our way!

In the meantime, don't forget to like us on Facebook.

We'll post up clips over the summer to give you a feeling for how things are coming together, so stay tuned.  : )

Thanks to all,
The Tested Team
