Other Ways You Can Help Us Make This All Happen:

1. If you or anyone you know would let us host a fundraiser event at your home or a nice venue, please let us know!

2. Deejay will need the best gear and winter attire if he is going to survive the ride up to the SF. Thus, we appreciate any in-kind donations!

3. If you are a member of an organization, please spread the word with everyone in your organization. We would be more than happy to attend your org. meeting and talk more about our film project with everyone!

 

Risks and challenges

We are currently raising funds for the production phase of our film project. After the production phase of our film project is successfully funded, we will need to hire a documentary film editor, a sound engineer, a musical composer, and color lab to piece together the film. We will also need to continue promoting the film and obtain film distribution. This will all cost a lot of money, so the completion of the project could be delayed if we do not have enough funds to pay for it. This simply just means that we will need to keep fundraising after production is complete so that we can raise enough money.

A delay in completing the final video will unfortunately delay distribution of rewards. However, rewards such as shout outs on Facebook and sponsorship recognition on our website will be granted shortly after a donation is received from the backer.
