Our film reached its $15,000 goal on November 6 with 150 wonderful backers!!!!! Those four weeks were quite trying, but we gave it our all and got one step closer to making the film with the help of media, friends, family, and strangers who believed in us.
Now, almost a month later, we are about to fly out to 5 cities and interview 10 individuals. It’s almost unbelievable.
With the funding we received, we were able to get the equipment we needed, purchase airplane tickets, lodging, as well as car rental to transport our equipment to filming locations. We still have some saved up for a future trip, which will most likely happen in March if scheduling goes according to plan (but we still have several logistics to work out before we solidify those plans).
But right now, there is next week! We fly out December 10 for an amazing week of nothing but interviewing key figures in the initial development of one of the biggest industries in existence and individuals who passionately love and know that history! Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook for continual photo updates of our first trip in our production phase! You can expect a post-trip blog about our adventures, surprises, and hopefully limited or lack of mishaps, while producing this film! Thanks for following us 🙂
