Sound mixing, tools for video editing (our machines can't), Buying the rights to the songs, buying the rights to the only video of Jackson C. Frank, owned by the BBC. Going to London for a final trip (interviews and places). And record voice over. And record music for the documentary. None of these things can be done for free because that is not up to us.
We won't be able to pay the BBC for the video extract. We won't be able to pay the rights to use the songs. We won't be able to do a proper sound mixing. And the editing will take a long long time. Working without money is very long, we have been on this for more than four years. John Renbourn (interviewed in the documentary) has passed away 3 years ago. Out of respect to all the people involved, we want to finish the movie.
The story is very sad. And it took a lot of travels to tell it. So it didn't convince Tv channels. Once the movie done, we hope to convince them to look at time, because we believe that the movie will be a good movie (there is no shame in that). It was just simply too risky for them. We don't blame anybody for that. We simply decided to take the risk by ourselves. And here we are now.
Yes, definitely. We will give you regular infos, news, etc. You will be kept in touch of the production, step by step. Your name will be in the credits. And if I meet you in person, I promise I'll buy you a cup of coffee or a beer (and the rewards too, of course).
