New Website and Footage
Hello Kickstarter Supporters!
This is Kelley, the director of the documentary film on Korean high school. Thank you all so much for your support. With the money we received, we've been able to buy several cameras to give to students. It's been lots of fun giving them the equipment and teaching them filming techniques.
We've also started our own website-- www.KoreanHighSchool.com
On our site you can find an updated version of our Kickstarter fundraising video, with some new footage we haven't released yet. On the site you can also find an excerpt from the previous film I directed, "To Be Remembered".
Although we've been able to buy four cameras (which is amazing!) we still need to buy one more. We are also struggling affording other expenses- such as memory cards, tripods, sound equipment, and external hard drives to store the footage. We are now accepting pledges on our website via PayPal. We've kept all the exciting awards that were on our Kickstarter-- so if you have any friends that might be interested in pledging, please spread the word! We need as much help as we can get.
Thank you all so much for your support! Being able to get cameras for these students has been amazing.
Looking forward to making this film (and showing it to all of you!),
