Hi all: I’ve been negligent in keeping you up to date on what has been happening with Clint Ross and Michael Aubrecht and their documentary “The Angel of Marye’s Heights”. Clint just sent out an update so I wanted to pass it along. They are raising funds for producing the DVD of the film. To be a part of this exciting project, read the update below and then visit their website. Your support is very much appreciated. I’ve seen the film and it’s an excellent film.
FROM CLINT ROSS: DIRECTOR
We are steadily approaching our first steps in producing Right Stripe Media’s first DVD, The Angel of Marye’s Heights. We are striving to release the film by our determined goal of early 2011 just in time for the Civil War Sesquicentennial . Here are some recent quotes by experts about the film:
“I just watched your Kirkland movie and was super impressed. Very well written and accurate script, use of historians, the graphics were excellent. Overall a very professional looking production. Great job!” – Mac Wyckoff, retired NPS historian and THE leading authority on Richard Kirkland and the 2nd South Carolina Volunteers.
“This film was a poignant, inspiring portrayal of an unassuming hero. It made a touching Civil War story leap from the pages of history and come alive.” – Jane Conner, historian and author of Birthstone of the White House and Capitol and Sinners, Saints, & Soldiers in Civil War Stafford.
In our haste of anticipation and preparation, we just wanted to stop and say a quick “thank you” to all our supporters that have contributed to this film either through financial contributions or by simply being the man or woman on the street spreading the word. We could not and cannot do this without YOU.
On a side note, just yesterday Michael and I were on Victory-FM’s “Welcome Home” program. We will be posting links to these interviews soon, but in the meantime, if you’d like to read about our latest screening at Mary Washington University where Michael was personally invited by the President to host a private screening, follow the link below to our blog. You can keep up with our screening dates (including upcoming shows at Stafford and Pittsburgh) on our website under EVENTS.
We’ll be talking to you soon, but in the meantime, keep spreading the word!
