WE MADE OUR POST PRODUCTION GOAL - But it's not over yet!

WE MADE IT to $15K on our IndieGoGo Campaign!! But it's not over yet!

First, I want to extend a huge thanks to all of you for making this film possible. We wouldn't have a movie if it wasn't for your generosity! As you know, we have been fundraising on IndieGoGo for the last month to finish the film.  

Thanks to the support of our IndieGoGo funders, we now have enough to cover some of the major costs of post-production, but we still have a lot to raise before the campaign ends in less than 3 days.


If just 208 people donate $45 to secure their own Blu-Ray copy of the film, we will reach our goal**! At this point, we have no guarantee of a widely available release, so the best way to ensure people see the film is for them to donate and secure their copy before the campaign ends! [All of you who supported us have already secured your copies, we're asking you to spread the word so others can too!]


Would you quickly pass along the link to friends and family, fellow hikers and outdoor enthusiasts encouraging them to secure their copy of the documentary? This will help us reach our goal and cover the remainder of our expenses so we can finally get the film to you

Best Regards and Good Hiking!
- Blake Cortright
Director, "The 46ers Film"

Breaking News! Aerial Video!



(via The 46ers Film on Facebook)

This is your chance to be in The 46ers Film! Tomorrow is our last day of shooting for the documentary and we will be filming aerial footage from a helicopter over the mountains! We’d love to catch a few shots with hikers on the summits and ridges of the peaks, so we’re inviting you to join us tomorrow for an adventure.

Watch this video to learn more, and comment below if you’ll be out in the peaks tomorrow in the window of time we are scheduled to film. All of our filming will be dependent on weather conditions, but if it all works out, we’ll be up around 6:30-8:00 AM and 6:00-7:30 PM tomorrow - Sunday, September 14th!

Invite your friends and join in the adventure! #46ersdoc

Thanks again for your support, stay tuned for future updates!
