This is the End


The students/filmmakers/storytellers behind this long-running project are proud to finally announce:

“Story of a Sleeping Man” is no longer a dream, idea, project, or in-the-works piece of art. It, our entrepreneurial friends, is a finished film!! 

We would like, once again, to thank all of you for investing in our dreams and helping to bring this project to life! To properly thank you, we’re sending off the backer gifts promised to you within in the next few weeks, and are cordially inviting all of you to the official premiere of “Story of a Sleeping Man”!

WHERE: Guyon Auditorium, Morris Library, SIU Carbondale, Carbondale Illinois

WHEN: July 1st, 2013 – Opening Reception/Refreshments @ 7:30, Screening 8-9

Parking is available to the north of the library, with additional street parking nearby. No need to keep it formal on a college campus, so dress is casual, and there are plenty of spots, so feel free to tell anyone you like, and bring those you really like.

Again we appreciate everything you guys have done, and want to thank you especially for sticking with us and seeing this project through. We look forward to seeing you all at the premiere, and will continue to keep you posted when more news arises. (Festival announcements are in our near future!)
