$80,000 is the bare minimum we need in order to finish this film. The more funds we have available, the better resources we have. Film production services grow costly & like anything else, the more qualified, the more expensive.
If we don't reach our goal, we will have to continue to search for money otherwise. Our goal is to tell this story from the heart and the voice of two adoptees. Unfortunately if our goal is not met, then we will be forced to continue pushing back our deadline and search for funding. As of now, we do not have enough money to pay an editor for our film.
When we began the project, we didn't expect the story to unfold in such amazing ways. In addition, we were a bit naïve about the costs of such a production. We were wise with our spending, but we never expected to spend 10 days in Korea and to be able to capture it all. International documentaries cost way more than $30,000. We need much more to finish the story and we hope to do so in the best way possible!
