We will be celebrating very soon...
The film is so close to being completed. The cut we have now is very close to a "fine" cut and it is exciting. Yes, we're still working on the music cues, photoshopping the many, many photos, fixing sound, color correcting, working on graphics and titles, etc. but the story is sound. I almost can't believe it. Your support, your encouragement and your connection to this project have kept me going and I am so grateful.
For those of you who have not seen the Kickstarter Page I want to give you the link because I've been posting updates about the film, sharing videos, links, poetry, photos and short clips I think you will like. Just click here.
We exceeded the goal we set on Kickstarter and I couldn't be happier and more grateful. Of course there's always time to contribute. Our post-production, publicity, marketing and outreach costs also exceed the goal we set on Kickstarter - by a lot. You can visit the website (here) to make a tax deductible donation any time. And if you get a second to go to the website and join the newsletter, that would be great. Thanks.
But please know this film will now be completed because of all the support you have already given. THANK YOU!!!
Below are the newest clips from the project. I hope you enjoy them. Feel free to comment, share your thoughts and communicate. I always love hearing from you. All the best, Mary

The finish line is in sight and I’m not just talking about the Olympics. I now have a rough cut of my film Lost In Living and it is because of your support and your friendship. I am so grateful and frankly quite touched by your belief in this project and in me.
I am launching a Kickstarter Campaign and I need to raise $5000 or more in the next 30 days. That’s how Kickstarter works. If the goal isn’t reached, I get nothing. This last fundraising push is necessary to complete the editing, pay the composer, update the website, create an education guide and show this film everywhere. You can read all the details about it when you click on this campaign link:
Many of you have financially contributed to this project already. Your incredibly generous help has kept me editing this film toward completion. Thank you so very, very much.
There are so many ways to participate in the project without sending money. And I need that help. Open up your rolodex or your email contact list and send the Kickstarter link to anyone who you think would be interested. See if you can find at least five people to email.
Maybe you know someone who can write about it in a blog or an article or on a Facebook page. Take up the message of the film as your own and pass the news about it to your friends, relatives, co-workers – even strangers on the street.
Become an Outreach Partner. Spread the word about the film in your community, to arts and womens’ organizations. Help us find places we can screen this film and partner with organizations that can benefit from its message.
Most of all broadcast this Kickstarter campaign as often as you can. Facebook it, tweet it, email it, talk about it. My thanks are enormous.
Please sign up on the website (below) for the newsletter and continue to receive updates on the progress of Lost In Living. There is so much more to come.
With your participation and support I plan to have this film completed in the next few months. I simply can’t thank you enough.
