Happy Holidays from Team Raise Hell! Thank you SO much for your great and continued support of Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins.
In the run up to the election the Raise Hell Facebook page exploded with your fantastic and enthusiastic responses to our posts of Molly quotes and images. Every one of us on Team Raise Hell was thrilled with the show of love for Molly and support for the film. We feel now more than ever Molly’s voice, humor and joie de vivre are truly needed.
Here is the low down – it ain’t done yet. Our production team is small and we all wear a variety of hats. Janice, our director is editing to get it to a “rough cut”. Once that is done, we will follow up with PBS, Showtime and other broadcast outlets that have expressed interest, and go out and get the remaining money we need to finish.
Other news: our website will be revamped in the first quarter of 2017 and a news page will be added so that we can post timely and frequent updates.
Donations continue to come in – THANK YOU! We really appreciate that. So if you’d like to throw a little more cheer (it’s tax deductible y’all) to Raise Hell this holiday you can do so here: http://www.documentary.org/film/raise-hell
We know that this is not the update that y’all hoped for but the reality of independently funded and created documentaries is that they are challenging to make. We are hoping that come early 2018 Raise Hell will be screening at your local metroplex!
Thank you again for being a part of this ever-expanding journey, bringing Molly Ivins back to the people!
A very Molly and Jolly Holiday season to all.
Janice, Carlisle & James
