Here we go!
Hello Kickstarter Family!
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks and we are still reeling in the the excitement of our Kickstarter success and the gratitude we have to each of you for helping us meet our goal. We did it! We did it! We did it! We also wanted to provide an update on where we are at with our documentary filming process. With your support, we’ve been able to keep a small film crew including a cinematographer and camera assistant on the ground at Kopila Valley in Surkhet, Nepal. The crew has been capturing the day to day beauty and magic of the home, school, and women’s center. There are often many places to be all at once between the hundreds of people that BlinkNow impacts and all the day to day action that happens between the various projects that are going on on the ground. Of course there's also the family camping trips under the stars, the epic dance parties at and Maggie's own personal journey and healing process.
This past few months 6 older children transitioned from the home in preparation for college and internships and independent living situations. It was a major “flying from the nest" and milestone for Maggie and the family with lots of emotions. We captured admissions with 200+ applicants looking for 25 scholarship spots. Meanwhile, the construction site is BOOMING! The second story is going up, as we fight a timeline to get the roofing on before monsoon. There is sooo much to capture and part of our plan is to beef up our production team a little bit to capture all the potential story lines and beautiful moments here. We’re also in the process of selecting editors and the right production partners. The massive reach we had through our Kickstarter campaign put us in a really good spot to help us make measured decisions that put the children and integrity of the project first, while making sure the film reach it's full potential.
We will continue to keep you posted as we go. Actually I (Jeremy) am traveling back to Nepal tomorrow (after a pretty grueling three months apart) we were absolutely overwhelmed by all of your support and messages, so thank you all again! We are working on new content to keep you up to date as well as putting together everyones rewards to get out to you ASAP! We will be in touch
