Despite the competition, we garnered 3 prestigious grants to date:
– Berkeley Film Foundation
– The San Francisco Foundation
– California Humanities
We used the funds to launch the production phase, and film Howard Cruse at work in his studio in Williamstown, Massachusetts and at home with his husband/partner of 40 years. We now have a 7-minute sample work that’s available to screen, in addition to the film trailer.
We are poised to film at the 2nd Biennial Queers & Comics Conference in SF where we will ask a panoply of young cartoon artists to comment on the work of artists they admire.
