Risks and challenges

There are always risks with any movie but since we are 85% shot, half the music score is composed and a directors cut of the film is currently being edited, it is safe to say that this film will get done.

One challange with any film is distribution and getting the film shown to as many people as possible.

The biggest challange we face is setting the Eel River on a course to recovery and hopefully this film can be a tool to educate and inspire people to get involved in taking care of this American treasure.
