So Close!

The Elders is SO CLOSE to being done – and as I type this, I’m putting together the finishing touches in preparation for the Final Cut screening being held at the Paramount Center theater in Boston on Tuesday (April 12th).

This morning I finished putting the beautiful titles and credits in place (by Jeffrey Jeppesen), and the final draft of the (hauntingly beautiful!) score (music by Lee Strauss) will be in place tonight. Color correction will be wrapped up tonight as well, and then my computer will be working around the clock until Monday to get the film into a format that it can be viewed on any computer. So close!

I’ve attached a picture of the poster/postcard for the film – and I’d love to know what you think. It was put together by my long-time friend and collaborator Jeffrey Jeppesen who also did the titles for the film.

I’ll keep you updated and be on the lookout for an email from kickstarter requesting addresses so I can begin to send out the “rewards” in early May!

Thank you all for your patience as I make this film the best it can be – we’re almost “done!”

      Yes, once it screens at festivals, the film will be available via DVD. I would LOVE to screen it in the UK and will be submitting to several festivals there.

Through the eyes of an aging generation, The Elders examines what it really means to live, by coming of age. This website is dedicated to showcasing the stories filmed and the filmmaker's journey to film them.


A feature-length documentary, The Elders uses stylized interview portraits of elderly individuals to tell a universal story about life's most important lessons. Thematically organized around life lessons that reflect a wide range of human emotion and experience, the film seeks to reveal a larger more complex portrait of our shared humanity.
