Yes, yes, yes….we are still editing.  But, I promise all is moving along.  These things just take awhile.

We have found a new title for our film – TURN THE PAGE.  Many thanks to Judith Helfand for the suggestion.  It works on several levels for the film and seems to be a good fit for the project.

We have also just set up a Facebook page for the film.  You can Like it HERE.  Please share it with others that might be interested in the issues surrounding incarcerated parents and the children left on the outside.

More to come….

We are still working away on THE STORYBOOK PROJECT.  The architecture is being crafted in the edit room and the film is growing richer at each twist and turn.  Here is a little snapshot of our morning.

More to come soon….

Editing

Last month we interviewed Elizabeth Gaynes, Executive Director, of The Osborne Association. They provide leadership to the New York Initiative for Children of Incarcerated Parents (NYICIP), a collaborative system of reform and advocacy effort that brings together public and private agencies and individuals concerned about how the arrest and incarceration of parents affect children. As we witnessed, they are changing lives, for the better, everyday.

January 2012 will begin the editing process. We will sculpt the structure of the documentary by weaving the stories of the incarcerated parents, their families on the outside, the Storybook program volunteers, the Sheriff of Ontario County, the Chief Corrections Officer, educators, and our various experts. I am quite excited to enter this next phase of production and look forward to writing to you from the ‘other’ side.
