Project Update #6: Folsom - We've Been Selected for Our First Film Festival!

Hello all, quite some time has passed since our last update. Since then we held our live screening of the film with the company of our cast and crew as well as our premiere access tier contributors.

 But, the excitement doesn’t end there. We've officially been selected for the SacTown Movie Buffs Film Fest! For those of you who happen to be in the Sacramento area, this is your chance to catch a live viewing of the film! The festival will take place on April 16th, 2023 at Esquire IMAX Theater in Downtown Sacramento.

The Address is: Esquire IMAX Theater: Sunday 04/16/2023

1211 K St, Sacramento, CA 95814

However, the Awards will be presented to the winners in the afternoon/Evening block around 7pm. If you wish to attend both blocks, the cost is $25.

We hope to see many of you there as we root for Folsom to hopefully place in our very first film festival. Many thanks once again to all our contributors. This wouldn't have been possible without all of you.

Project Update #5: Folsom - Post-Production Is Well Under Way

January 28, 2022

It's been nearly 5 months since we wrapped the production of Folsom. Since that time, our post-production team has been hard at work refining a showcase cut of our film. This is the cut of the film that we will be submitting for a chance to be featured in the CSUN film showcase. We have reached the point of picture lock and now all that's left is the addition of the finished score, sound design, as well and other finishing touches. After which we will be able to focus on the director cut which we plan to give a festival run. 

As for you amazing individuals who made this all possible, we too are in the gradual process of sending out your donation perks! To start, today we are going to begin rolling out our social media shoutouts on our Instagram @folsomshortfilm over a few weeks. So follow us if you don't already and stay tuned!

On behalf of our entire team, we cannot express enough gratitude for your support of this project that has become not only a valuable learning experience for aspiring young filmmakers but the opportunity to work toward our collective passions of a career in the film industry.

Project Update #4: Folsom - Tomorrow is the Big Day!

August 22, 2021

In the blink of an eye, we have finally made it to the last day of preproduction. This morning, we met with our actors via zoom to hold a table read where we were finally able to see the lines of the script come to life. Along with that, the rest of our departments are finishing up their pick-ups and preparations for tomorrow, and we are in the process of distributing film notifications to all the surrounding areas of our filming locations.

Trust us, it hardly feels real that these past few months flew by so quickly, and we are ecstatic to begin production tomorrow. We cannot thank you, our contributors, enough once again for backing us and propelling this project to fruition. For a lot of us, this will be our first opportunity to work in key roles on a production of this caliber. So for this reason, we all want to say thank you for supporting our filmmaking dreams.

Be sure to follow our production journey throughout the week on our Instagram @folsomshortfilm! We will likely post updates to our story to keep you all in the loop and give you a peek at what we're working on. As we said, it's because of your support that we can make this vision come to life, and for that, we appreciate every single one of you.

See you once we wrap!

Project Update #2: Folsom - We've Passed Two-Thirds of Our Goal!

August 07, 2021

We have hit 68% of our goal! So much has progressed since our last milestone, and believe it or not, we are just shy of two weeks away from our first day of principal photography! The entire Folsom team cannot thank you all enough for funding the resources to make our vision a reality.

Since our last update, we have picked out our locations, began the composition of the score, and are about to begin call-backs for casting!

Another way to help us out is by sharing our funder with your family and friends! Every share makes a great impact as we come closer to our first shooting date!

Project Update #1: Folsom - We're Half Way There!

July 02, 2021

We just recently hit 50% of our goal, all thanks to you! With just over a month away from shooting, we still have a ways to go. But the Folsom team is eternally grateful for your continued support.

We are deep in preproduction, and with a now locked script, our departments are working hard to schedule location scouts, secure music rights, and drafting our shot list (just to name a few). We'll be sure to send updates as we continue working on our production.

In the meantime, we're excited to announce the launch of our merch store! This is another way to support our filmmaking endeavors meanwhile looking stylish repping our selection of designs! Visit to browse various styles provided by our talented production design team!

Once again, we are so thankful for your support and cannot wait to continue to share our journey with you all in the near future!

Till next time,

The Folsom Team
