Well it's finally all ready for you to get your eager film-lovin' hands on, friends! You now can pre-order your very own copy of "Camilla Dickinson" on Amazon.com, and have all the juicy exclusive extras that we packed the DvD with! *sounds of joyful cheering* (
) http://tinyurl.com/ndguvuz (
) We are understandably very, very, very happy. (
) You help us, perhaps more than you can possibly imagine, by pre-ordering one, and even MORE so by reviewing it loudly on any platform you wish, and even MORE so by asking your friends to post about it, review it, and maybe get a DvD themselves:) We who create content salute you, generous loving audience, for supportively helping us to create more. (
) Now we are working very hard on: hopefully and prayerfully getting "West of Redemption" to a wonderful distributor like we have for Camilla, while beginning work on Movies 4 and 5! Stay tuned for more updates, we hope to have some very exciting news soon.

Prepare the way of the Film!

Larry and I are happily preparing for the launch of our beloved movie "Camilla Dickinson" on August 25th! There are, of course, the 67 million (give or take) "deliverables" due to your distributor when a movie you have worked on for so many years is about to be released. But what a wonderful set of tasks. It is such an incredible blessing to be where we are this summer with Camilla, and with "West of Redemption". No matter how tough things get...and they have been...daunting lately of course...I have a very thankful heart. We hope and pray to reach lots of current, and future, Madeleine fans with this film :) We had a wonderful SIFF, premiering "West of Redemption". I hope to get pictures of that evening soon for the blog here. Till then, here is the amazing and talented Tony Becerra and me at the fun Women in Film "Northwest Connections" party:)

Coming back to the Blog Again

For years I have not posted here on my blog, but have instead posted on my Mom's CaringBridge (www.caringbridge.org/visit/sylviaduryee). Since her death on December 20th, 2014, I have been buried, both in grief and in work on several movies at once, and I have not come back to write in my own blog here. (
) I wanted to announce, for any that still are on the list, that my new movie's World Premiere is Memorial Day, May 25th, at 7pm at the Harvard Exit in Seattle. Please come! You can get tickets at the following link for both that screening and the Wednesday one. I would love to see you there! (

) And the latest article about me is here: (

) I hope to write in here more regularly, now that I finally have remembered the password! (
) Thanks for reading this again:)

And... that's a wrap...

(
) Day 19 was long, cold, and eventually windy, rainy, and very hard on the actors and crew, though it made for some amazing photography. Thank goodness the end of the day, and the shoot, was indoors. The last sequences were some interstitial shots of Billy and Mariana, with Billy clean-shaven; in the "past". The very last shot was of Billy walking past a vaguely cross-shaped key-holder on the wall. I cried for the last five setups. Folks let me. It is SO tough for the shoot to be over. When you put something together for years...not-doing it suddenly is pretty tough. (
) I stayed for awhile, drifting around base camp taking pictures, then went up to the flood-lit house to watch the guys load equipment. T.J. was pitching right in helping - that's my D.P. I tweaked my ankle in the dark, walking over the cattle guard to make sure wrap was going ok. It hurts today, among other things. (
) I cried a little as I forced myself to leave the farm, eventually, and drive to the dive bar where the wrap party was. Even though I had stayed late wrapping, Mary and I were the first ones there. But then the party got going, and eventually, after a hard cider, I stopped mourning and begin to celebrate what we had done, along with everyone else. T.J. toasted everyone who had helped him with "his first feature". So sweet. (
) Now we start post-production. Okay, well, after I lie around doing nothing for a couple of days, resting my ankle and back, then get myself to Seattle. I am taking it very slowly today and icing a lot. (
) Post-partum? oh yeah. But...we DID IT. Thank God for every single member of the team. I love them all to pieces. Thank God for this movie. This crew was utterly amazing, few as they were. (
) I want to curl up on the couch at my Mom's house and tell her all about it...wish I could tesser...think I will call her, and Terry.
