Making a documentary is hard and it’s a process you rarely get a close look at. This is why we want to make a FREE behind the series that follows how we make our upcoming feature film. To give you a real exclusive insight into how a feature documentary film is being made.
We all have a story we’d like to share. Sometimes it’s our own, sometimes it’s someone else’s. As filmmakers, we all tend to hide what we are working on and not share the process of the making, and if we do, it is usually not the raw and pure things that we show. We show the success.
What we don’t show is the struggle, the years of work, the real life pitching sessions with broadcasters and VOD channels.
Our goal with this campaign is to end up with 2 documentaries. One original story, where we follow the people in Keno City, a faded gold-rush town in northern Canada. The other, a real time, behind the scenes documentary, where you can follow the film from start to finish.
We want to invite you to be a part of the making of the documentary.
If you support the project, you will get FREE
- Online courses
- LUTS & Powergrades
All things that a filmmaker are in a need of when making a film. Whether it's a short film, feature, mini series or youtube videos.
We know that there are millions of stories out there waiting to be told, and we hope to inspire you to tell them. And hopefully be able to make a living from it. We have the funding we need to start make the documentary, but we really want to bring you with us on this adventure, and for that we’ll need help.
WHAT THE FUNDS WILL GO TO
To make a behind the scenes series and release it for FREE on YouTube.
- To offer FREE advice, resources, templates, online courses for you to download. All things we use in the making of a film.
- To document everything as it happens (research, pitches, success, failure, production days, post production, marketing and more).
SNEAK PEAK - BEHIND THE SCENES
We need to raise at least $25 000+ for this project to work out. To cover the costs of editing, producing and documenting this whole project from behind the scenes. We will stay on location for additional days just to shoot this BTS documentary.
If we reach $45 000+ – We will shoot and release a short film based on the making of the film. We'll give it to all the backers for FREE.
If we reach $65 000+, in addition to the series, we will make a 1 hour long documentary about the process of making the film. It will be both a personal and detailed insight into how the film is made. We will also make a 3 hour long editing online course.
If you decide you want to follow us on this journey, we’ll make sure you get MORE out of your pledge than the actual amount you donate.
You will get free LUTS, Presets, Online Courses, Consultation and you even get a chance to be a part of the project through as an Associate Producer.
Help us make this together. We’d love to do it with you!

Risks and challenges
Without your support, we won't be able to show you everything behind the scenes because the costs are to high. There are big challenges that comes with just shooting a documentary as it is, but to capture everything and then edit for 100s of hours. That requires resources which is why we really need your help!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
