As 2015 comes to a close, I reflect on the year past and update you on VM Productions activities both present and moving forward into 2016.

and from the Dostoyevsky-LA Project:
We are currently editing: nine interviews with Cast and Crew, including a recently recorded interview with Natasha Blasick, long and short versions of each. Following on we are in the middle of editing the fine cut of the Dostoyevsky Reimagined: Behind The Scenes and the feature film, The Missing Screenwriter based on nineteen award-winning episodes/video journals.
¿Hablas Español? Sprechen Sie Deutsch? You can look forward to our feature films being translated into all the major languages covering all the major territories.
We are currently campaigning to invite true fans of our films, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, indie film, inspiring literature and arts. This is part of our preparation for our crowdfunding campaign under the fiscal sponsorship of Carole Dean and From The Heart Productions.
In April of this year, we launched a blog for Dostoyevsky-BTS. We have published 140 blogs to date. This newsletter features the latest blogs from our talented writers. Christophe, our latest vlogger is featured below. He is investigating our missing screenwriter, Robert Hurley, along with Lauren, our creative director. You can view our vlogs here, The Missing Screenwriter and Dostoyevsky Reimagined.
We are social! We look forward to seeing you at any one of our social media platforms: Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, Vimeo, RSS Feed, GoodReads, LinkedIn and YouTube. Twitter page: Dostoyevsky-BTS, Notes from the new world, Crime and punishment, LA, Robert Hurley.
Finally, also mentioned in this newsletter are invitations to Festivals and Universities. Please enjoy reading the newsletter.
Happy Holidays and wishing you a Happy New Year for 2016 from all of us here at VM Productions.
