A film that will document the life, musical contributions, and cultural relevance of one of the greatest musicians who has ever lived.
The life of Roy Ayers is exceptional. A career spanning over 5 decades, his music has transcended the vast realm of Jazz. His versatile sound has been an inspiration to artists and music in all walks of life, and has been sampled by dozens of contemporary artists, creating a bridge between older and newer generations. His music promotes the philosophies of Love, Happiness, and Self-Empowerment , and continues to educate by sending inspirational messages through music.
This is the first full length documentary about Roy Ayers, and his story has to be documented.

How these funds will be used
This proposal is to fund the filming of the trailer only.
We will need to supply air fare and room & board for our production team of 5 people from California to New York (Director, Cameraman, Production Assistant, Sound Operator, and Photographer). The amount we are trying to raise is considerably lower than the actual cost of travel expenses, but we are just hoping for base funding and upstart money to get the process rolling. Once we film and edit the trailer, we will be able to search, apply, and attempt for more fundraising opportunities.
