Hi Sapience backers!
We have an update for you on the progress of our documentary, Sapience. Here's what's happened since we last communicated with you:
1. We interviewed Dr. Vandana Shiva, and it was amazing.
2. We're preparing to interview our final subject in April, the incredible Dr. Jane Goodall. We're super pumped (who wouldn't be?!)
3. We've assembled a rough cut of the film with our current subjects. And we're continuing to push forward.
4. and finally, We've entered a contest through Cinecoup Film Accelerator, and we need your help!
We're still seeking various funding opportunities as we move along, and so we've submitted Sapience to an all-new film accelerator competition. Cinecoup Film Accelerator will choose one winner at the end of the contest cycle to receive up to 1 million dollars in funding, and guaranteed theatre distribution! You can surely see why we couldn't pass up this amazing opportunity. There are 90 submissions and we're one of the only documentaries in the running.
We need your help, because a major part of this competition is social engagement and fan support!
So this is where you come in:
Please go to Cinecoup http://cinecoup.com/sapiencefilm and rate, watchlist, and share our project with friends and family. Anything you can do to garner support will help us greatly. This competition relies heavily on social engagement.
There's an initial voting round taking place on March 21, where votes that you earn through Cinecoup will be able to be applied to the film of your choice. See the Facebook event here, and join. Sign up on Cinecoup's website to earn votes (logging in through Facebook gives you a couple right away!)
As part of our weekly missions, you can check out our pitch video, where we go behind the scenes and show you a bit about us, our studio, and why we chose to make this film:
We thank all of you for your continued support, and will continue to update you on the film's progress!
