A little update on my documentary as we are approaching the end of June; I have made a lot of progress thus far. Last week, I got in contact with a talented director of photography who seems to be willing to help and hop on the team. His name is Ryan Carmody and I am adding the link to his website if anyone is interested in knowing a bit more about his work: http://www.ryancarmody.net/. In addition to Ryan, I have also contacted Joel Salatin, a renowned farmer, who makes an appearance in the famous documentary “Food Inc.” Joel has been extremely insightful on sustainable farming matters and has agreed to feature in my film to discuss the future of GMOs. I will be interviewing him this fall! I have started working with a young composer on the score and plan to hold a Skype session with him shortly in order to go over some details.
I am also toying with the idea of changing the title of this documentary from “Pursuing the Monarchs” to “Chasing the Monarchs”. I would love for anyone to comment their preference as I am having some trouble making up my mind (different ideas are also encouraged!)
I hope everyone’s project is going well, and I look forward to reading everyone’s progress.
Anna Chahuneau, Director of “Pursuing the Monarchs”.
