The STORY

At the Montana based entertainment festival HatchFest, I (Nic Davis) was challenged to follow my dream and create a documentary film about the “power of a song to change a person's life.” I accepted this challenge, and over the past year and a half have embarked on a life-changing quest to pursue my passion and create the documentary film now titled "Montespaña."

Working on this film has been a dream come true, but it hasn’t always been easy. I went from lugging around film equipment in the 100+ degree summer sun of southern Spain, to trekking through the freezing winter weather of Montana to get some of the beautiful sunset shots you’ll see in the film. However, these difficulties pale in comparison to the last step of fundraising enough money to finish the film.

Our ultimate goal is to raise $3,500. If we can raise $3,500 we’ll have enough to do all of the initial professional work on Montespaña that we need to finish the film. Every dollar helps so make your pledge now and support independent film!

The ARTISTS

This documentary would not have been possible without the hard work and collaborative talent of two musicians: John McLellan (pictured below with his band The Clintons) and Jose Cortes (pictured below with his Flamenco Troupe).

The CREW

We have an incredible team, and they deserve some serious credit. So much thanks to John McLellan, Jose Cortes, Anne Bergman, Nico Atienza, Salo Tuns, Mark Shurey, Harold Burgon, Thayer Janes, Scott Rezvani, Zach Morgan, Ryan Day, Anna Larsen, Mack Perry, Stephen Michael, Thomas Vincent, Ana Jimenez, Malala Diaz, Erin Schermele, Ingrid McLellan, Amber Bushnell, Shawna Putnam, and the many others who have helped to make this dream a reality.

The KICKSTARTER VIDEO

This video features the song "Doorways" by the artist Radical Face. We have received the rights to use this song for our Kickstarter video through Bicycle Music.

The video also features our short, Kickstarter version of the "Montespaña" trailer. Hope you enjoy it!

The PRIZES

The estimated delivery dates provided for the packages are for everything except the DVD’s and digital downloads of the film. Since we’re hoping to take the film to a number of festivals, we’re not allowed to release it until after we run the festival circuit. But don’t worry, we know your need for good entertainment, so we’ll get those to you ASAP!

Note* We'll have to charge an additional 10$ for any international orders that require mailing, and 25$ for international shipping of The DISTRIBUTOR package.
