We're Back + Thank You !!!! + Behind the Scenes
We're back! Thank you so much for funding Hoonah's Heroes and making it possible to capture these truly incredible stories. The project has turned out to be so much more -- complicated, moving, emotional, powerful -- than we ever could have imagined.
21 days, 18 interviews, 63 hours of footage
We are exhausted and exhilarated!
Step 1: Edit, Edit, Edit
Step 2: Fundraise, Fundraise, Fundraise
Step 3: Repeat
In the meantime...

Filmmaker Caveat: These were taken on a little Flip camera; the real interview footage is shot on Sam's beloved Panasonic and is not all weird and wobbly, fear not!
Actually, we've got a bunch of videos here: http://vimeo.com/user4594662/videos
Sort them by "oldest", and you can see how things progressed. Personal favorite, of course, is the homage to Paris is Burning (Video #10), which has nothing to do with the documentary, but makes us happy every time we watch it.
VERY IMPORTANT -- Send us your address! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
A million thank yous for making this project possible. You are the best looking and wittiest group of kickstarters that ever were.
Samantha, Matt and Christie
