About this project
Risks and challenges
One lesson these dancers have already learned: Sheer passion isn’t enough. No dancer succeeds without support from family, friends, mentors, trainers and fellow dancers.
Likewise, our passion for this story won’t bring it to fruition. That’s why we’re seeking your support. Our fund-raising goal is based on a budget for technology, music rights, and basic post-production services. If we can raise more than our goal, we can travel to dance competitions, hire a professional editor, a sound mixer, and additional camera support to follow our dancers to rehearsals, competitions, and to track their day-to-day lives in a way that provides the vital, nuanced moments that bring meaning to documentary storytelling.
When we held an audition to interview potential cast members, it was standing room only. Our biggest problem was the burden of choice: How would we decide from among so many amazing stories? With a limited crew — and a lot of favors — we were able to complete a trailer, and it became clear that our young cast was spot-on.
Of course, when you work on long-term film projects, things don’t always go so perfectly. We know that. That’s why we’re fortunate to have veteran leadership and mentorship, along with the enthusiasm of film newcomers, working on this project.
With our passion — and your support — this amazing story will be told.
