About

Our goal is to film a pilot episode for a television documentary series that goes beyond the hunt. Hot On The Trail (HOTT) shows the viewers the many traditions that surround a hunt in different cultures, communities, and families. Each episode covers a different community or tribe and their hunting traditions. Our team will document their traditional methods of hunting and how it has influenced that specific culture. HOTT reveals the interaction between hunting and society in each group's art, religion, relationships, and more.

HOTT strives to promote healthy relationships with nature and wildlife and to preserve cultural traditions involved in hunting. HOTT informs on issues related to cultural sustainability, environmental preservation, and wildlife conservation.

Hannah Weinert is the writer and host of Hot On The Trail and Jesse Spaulding is the producer and videographer. We will hire freelance editors and graphics specialists to polish our final project. The $10,000 we raise through Kickstarter will help pay for travel, production costs, editing, and graphics work. We have all of the equipment and the pilot is already being produced, but we need your support to complete this project.

Please help us make this project succeed!

P.S. Some of our reward dates are set for 2013 because our DVD can't be release until after it's aired. However, we can send everything else before!

EARRINGS made from Hannah's Deer and Elk antlers - handcrafted by Hannah.
