The other day, Kara Swisher from AllThingsD.com interviewed us about Autumn Gem and making documentaries in the digital age. We talk about the genesis of the film, the production schedule, and provide hints at where we see the film being distributed in the future. Check it out!
Here’s our revised trailer for Autumn Gem. When we first filmed the teaser trailer, we hadn’t shot any footage from the actual documentary. This version of the trailer keeps the dramatic narration but adds scenes from our filming in China and the Bay Area. Enjoy!

Rae and I are minutes away from the Autumn Gem screening at the D7 Conference at the Four Seasons Aviara in Carlsbad, California. We’re excited to show the film in glorious 1080p. The dual projectors produce an absolutely fabulous picture… it’s the film as it was meant to be seen!
D7 attendees all received a special DVD of the movie in their gift bag. Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher provided a special note on the DVD jacket. Big thanks to them for allowing us to screen our film at the conference!
Here are some photos from the screening at D7.
Here are some photos by Timothy Chang from the cast and crew screening party held over the weekend. Thanks to the Domain Hotel in Sunnyvale for hosting and everyone who were able to take time out of their Sundays to come out! It’s now onward and upward with marketing and business development for the film.
Well, it’s finally time to make it official! We’re transitioning away from our working title The Qiu Jin Project in favor of Autumn Gem as the official name of the project. The domain names have been purchased, email has been set up, and the redirects are now working.
You can still reach the website by typing in http://qiu-jin.com, but you will now be magically redirected to http://autumn-gem.com.
