Congrats to our friends and colleagues at Love Gilda on their theatrical #premiere! As is mentioned in Getting Over, I lost my Jewish mother to ovarian cancer in 1998, grew up with Gilda, and always felt a deep affinity for her and her comedy. And as a hardcore Saturday Night Live fan and collector of TV memorabilia, one of my most cherished items is an authentic Gilda Radner autograph, kept in a custom designed and built card and case, created in the style of an old card product from 1991 from a defunct company called Star Pics. All the best from Getting Over and best wishes on continued success! #documentary #independentfilm #indiefilm #supportindiefilm #filmmaking #comedy #movies #film #tv #nbc #snl #saturdaynightlive #livefromnewyork #itssaturdaynight #gilda #gildaradner #genewilder #lovegilda #tribeca #cnnfilms #starpics #cardcollector #newyorkcity #nyc #upstartfilm #gettingoverfilm #fuckcancer

Howdy fans and well-wishers!
Wanted to let you all know that we’ve been making major strides on the film in the last couple of months! There’s still a little editing left to go, but we have the majority of the film in a really good place. The video is currently in the hands of our colorist, Sam Dlugach, and the audio is with our new sound editor/designer, Stephen Selvaggio, and we’re spending a majority of our time now meticulously cleaning and restoring all of our archival footage. It’s not a trivial task by any means, and we’re taking the necessary amount of time to do it right! We also have the good folks over at Framework Studio on the project, working on graphics and titles for us as we get closer to locking the picture!
Thanks again to all you for your continued support and patience. We’re finally coming down the home stretch, and we only have you to thank for helping to make it happen! Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the finish line!
Thanks to everyone who attended our wildly successful Casino Night and helped up reach our Indiegogo campaign goal! Through a new feature over at Indiegogo, we are able to continue raising funds even after the main campaign has ended. We are confident we are at a point where we can complete the film, but any and all additional help is greatly appreciated, as it will enable us to expand our reach, submit to additional festivals, and aim for a wider home video release!
So if you haven’t donated yet, please check us out by clicking the CONTRIBUTE NOW button above!
