Last summer our production team was honored to have been granted access to an extraordinary musical summer camp. Happy on the Ground: 8 Days at GRAMMY Camp® captures the heartwarming personalities and passion of a group of talented teenage musicians whose sole wish is to live a life filled with music. Within 8 glorious and exhausting days the teens meet one another for the first time, collaborate on and create music. Despite the mountain of obstacles they face; lack of music funding in schools, an uphill battle to find a music related career and an industry in turmoil, the teens remain hopeful and Happy on the Ground.
We have completed the feature length documentary, submitted to several prestigious film festivals and have high hopes for a distribution deal.
This was an independently (mostly self) funded project and we need your help to raise the money for color correction and a 5.1 Dolby sound mix. Any excess funds will go to festival costs and to pay the generous and talented crew members who worked 16 hours a day for free to get this wonderful story told.
After almost 2 decades in the entertainment business we can honestly say that the 8 days we spent watching these kids create music were the best of our lives. We gained renewed inspiration from watching them follow their dreams with true camaraderie and collaboration.
Thank you in advance!
PS - We'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge and promote some of the incredibly talented people who have generously donated their time and talent to this project. Part of the backer rewards include copies of our Woodstock inspired poster.
