Welcome!

Thank you for visiting the official web site of GETTING OVER, an independent, hour-long documentary by Jason Charnick about his father Ray, a hardcore heroin & cocaine addict and petty criminal who passed away due to AIDS in 1997.

We will be updating this site frequently during the production of the film, expected to be completed by Summer 2015. You can see our news updates below. Please follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, or share us on various social media platforms.

And down the stretch we come!

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!

We reached our goal!!!

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!

Tax-Deductible Contributions

Making an independent film doesn’t just take hard work, it takes money, and though we are proud of stretching our¬†limited budget as far as we already have, we need your help to finish the film and make it a reality.

We have all our footage “in the can,” but we still need to complete editing, hire a composer, a sound mixer, as well as a colorist, and then we will need funds to distribute DVD’s and Blu-ray Discs of the completed project, submit to various film festivals, etc.

To make a tax-deductible contribution to GETTING OVER, please click the DONATE button below. No donation is too small, and we can’t thank you enough for your generosity!
