    Pledge $8 or more About $8

    Why $8? Because that's the current price of gas per gallon in Italy as of this writing. You just helped us up into the hills behind the villages to shoot some of the vineyards or recent construction, a trip which will require our rental car. Thank you!!! At this level, we'll include your name with a special thank you on our website and we'll also send you a thank you "Vendemmia" postcard!

    Pledge $58 or more About $58

    Why $58? That's the exact cost of our rental car for the day, at the current exchange rate. The car will allow us to reach the terrain and vineyards behind the villages, essential locations for us to film. As a show of our appreciation, we'll send you a SPECIAL EDITION DVD of the film, which includes "behind the scenes" features and additional footage of the Cinque Terre. In addition, we'll include a thank you in the film credits, on the website, facebook and twitter, AND, at this level, you will receive personal behind the scenes updates. The special edition DVD is more than two thirds this value, so think of it as a DVD pre-sale with a little extra donation added! We'll also include a handwritten, commemorative notecard printed with our movie poster image. Grazie, grazie!!!

    Did you know that anchovies are caught in the Cinque Terre at night using a night fishing light, or "lampara"? Our beautiful and talented set photographer, Uta Theile, knows all about the art of fishing firsthand, since she is married to one of the last anchovy fishermen in the Cinque Terre. At this very special level, in addition to the Special Edition DVD of the film (this time, signed by the directors!), a thank you in the film credits, on the website, facebook and twitter, you will receive a SIGNED COPY of Uta's gorgeous book, “L'Arte della Pesca - Un Viaggio nelle Pesca delle Cinque Terre”. This amazing book is filled with stunning photographs and written documentation of the mysteries and beauty of the art of fishing, and has become an integral part in raising awareness for the Cinque Terre in the wake of their devastating environmental disaster this past October. Uta is becoming more and more known for her beautiful talents... become one of the few to have a signed copy of her book as your own. The value of the book with the photographer's signature and shipping included is nearly a third of this donation, so think of it as a purchase with one of our night's accommodations and some daily transportation costs added in! **Estimated delivery date below refers to the Special Edition DVD - Uta's book will be shipped within three months of our Kickstarter campaign conclusion.
