Welcome to the Unspeakably Wonderful blog.
Here we will keep you updated on all our exciting news and progress as our films moves towards principle photography.
Frederick Banting may have passed away in 1941, but he's still saving millions of lives today. Before Banting and his partners discovered insulin for therapeutic use, Type 1 diabetes was a death sentence. November 14th—Banting's actual birthday — was selected as World Diabetes Day because his discovery changed the world. Join @beyondtype1 in celebrating the man, the myth, the legend. Happy 126th birthday Sir Frederick Banting! The world thanks you! bantingsbirthday.org
Here's an update on the development: we've been working hard on the script and have now commissioned Kate Leys, one of the UK's top story editors (look her up here www.kateleys.co.uk ) to review the script. She's going to climb all over it, give us hell, and help to see us through to the next stage. We are very excited to have this opportunity and are looking forward to the feedback. Once this stage is complete we can then begin approaching actors, agents an financiers.
We have made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are funded.
What amazing and brilliant support we have received from everyone. We are so thankful to everyone for helping make what we all feel is a very important film. This is the start of an amazing journey and thank you all once again for supporting this exciting project.
Please keep sharing
Have a good weekend and thanks again
