As another bonus to supporters of the Father’s Day Film Tour, we’re making the 43 min. video of the recording session with the Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg available online. See composer Ari Benjamin Meyers conducting his breathtaking score.
Simply go to our crowdfunding site, pledge any amount of $1 or more, and you will be sent the link and password to the video. We’d love to give it to you for absolutely free, but we’re dependent on your help to recoup our expenses from the film tour, and to continue our efforts to get the film out there. Every contribution, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated!
