The return of the blog

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

Since Season 2 of the Reminder season has ended the blog has been kinda of dead. The fact that I’m gone almost every weekend doing events has a lot to do. Also, it has left a large time gap between Season 2 & 3.

The goal with Ummah Films was not to just make the Reminder series, which came kind of up by accident but rather to make a wide variety of films/videos. Alhamdulillah, recently we have crossed the bridge and have moved onto what maybe our first completed short film. A few weeks ago, a group of brothers who traveled from all over the US, came together to film the movie Tomorrow Never Comes. Now the Ummah Films team has grown to beyond just brothers (yeah sisters are helping out too) and InshAllah Ummah Films will continue to grow.

We started side blogs for these side projects and all the new posts have been posted on only those blogs (which is the reason while the Ummah Films looks kinda dead but in reality it has been very active). So for now on, we’re going to keep everyone in the loop of what’s going on with all the projects by double posting InshAllah (once on the UF blog and once in that specific project blog). If you are interested in just one specific project, you can subscribe to that and if you’re interested in all of the UF projects, you can stay subscribed to this blog. I hope that makes sense.

Until now, we've been volunteering and relying on volunteers to get stuff done and it has been very tough because this dunya isn't free. My goal is to raise funds so I can get bigger projects done InshAllah and so I won't have to rely on people volunteering their time on projects, which means that I have to more funding methods than just selling DVDs and UF shirts. Thus, I’m hoping to move Ummah Films to next level so we can afford the funding and proper equipment to make films InshAllah. I really want UF to get to a point that it won’t need assistance by just volunteers InshAllah. Is sounds tough because it is. I think if we put in the effort and have the right intention, it is possible InshAllah.
