|HOLLYWOOD TOWN - The Harriet Schock Story|
(To borrow an expression from last century.)
WE HAVE A DATE and will begin production on HOLLYWOOD TOWN - The Harriet Schock Story!
You can imagine how frustrating it's been to be ready to start and be interrupted by this COVID situation.
WHY THE WAIT?
The pandemic protocols needed to be observed, making it very difficult to produce film in the usual manner.
We originally expected a delay of maybe a month or two, back in April 2020, but here it is a year and a half later and people are STILL wearing masks, along with various other restrictions.
NOW THE GOOD NEWS!
We are about to begin Phase 1 production with a live HARRIET SCHOCK performance, well covered filmically, with multiple cameras and featuring a wide selection of Harriet's songs, beautifully produced.
This will serve as a visual and musical bedrock of material that will be useful throughout the film.
With that done, we will then arrange to film interviews with key people close to Harriet and her music.
The funds raised thus far have been safely set aside, awaiting the production start date and that date is here.
Phase 1 Contributors to this Indiegogo fundraising project—Honor Roll, Winners Circle—are invited guests for this performance in Hollywood at 7:00 pm, Tuesday evening, November 16th, in the Garden Pavilion of the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International.
As most of you know, Harriet and her band have performed here countless times. It's a beautiful location and technically able to support a film shoot such as this.
Seating is limited. If you wish to be part of the on-camera audience for this historic occasion, please RSVP with Harriet as soon as possible.
It is not open to the public.
Celebrity Centre strictly observes all of the dictates coming forth from various government entities.
Of course, masks have no place in an uplifting movie about the life and music of this beautiful soul we know as HARRIET SCHOCK.
The way that we will be able to film an unmasked audience is by serving food. It's understood that people don't wear masks while eating.
So the audience for this event will enjoy a light buffet, permitting ample camera coverage of the mask-less audience response during the first part of the show.
PHASE TWO & BEYOND
This Phase 1 material will be used to create a "trailer," showing what we've done and with what quality. This can then be used in the Phase 2 Campaign to fund the balance of shooting costs.
With Phase 2 funded and produced, we will launch a third Campaign to fund Post-production (editing and refinement).
With the completed movie in hand, there will be one last Campaign to fund a Festival Roll-Out.
If you are new to this project, you're invited to go to our Indiegogo Campaign page and see the Phase 1 Campaign and information about the project. (Hit the "ABOUT THIS CAMPAIGN" button.)
Though you won't be able to contribute at this time, this will change as soon as Phase 1 production is completed and the Phase 2 funding is begun.
If there are questions, feel free to contact me at any time and I will update this page periodically as we move forward with the production.
And if you are a Phase 1 Contributor—Honor Roll, Winners Circle—and wish to be part of the on-camera audience for this performance, contact Harriet right away and reserve a seat.
