We are getting closer to the end! There are about 14 days left to participate in this ground breaking film before it heads into the last stages of pre-production. We only need about $2,000 more before we reach our goal. Remember: It's all or nothing, and if we don't reach our goal, we won't be able to share the thrilling and potentially life threatening process of storm chasing with you and the world! Become a part of history by assisting in the documentation of this community of chasers that is exponentially growing each year. I speak with the crew and others multiple times every day, and they're all grateful and eager to get started. 

Interviews have been scheduled with many storm chasers, amateur and professional. The insight and opinions of these people are unrivaled and worth their weight in gold to the artistic integrity of the film. With each dollar donated we are allowed to do more than we originally would have been able to do. We are building much of our own equipment to capture these storms and chases like never before from perspectives that have only been imagined by others. So in every sense of the word, this project is ground-breaking.

This film is very special to many people and you are on the ground floor of making it happen. Help us make history. Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you for your support, and lets tackle this goal.
