Update #3

New Strategies Rolling Forward

Comment

We just want to send out a huge thank you to all those that did pledge to support making Occupied Cascadia a reality.  Most of the past 45 days have been doing public outreach going on TV, being highlighted in a magazine and on a few other blogs/websites, we played at an independent theater during art walk and approached over 40 organizations and students groups.  We want you to know that we went to great efforts in outreach, but times are hard.  While we did not reach our fundraising campaign, we are more encouraged than ever about the importance of this film and message.  We feel confident in our concept and encouraging this dialogue going across our region.

We have had to re-evaluate our strategy and goals, however.  We want to confidently say that this film WILL become a reality.  For the time being, our only goal is to complete the film and get the film screenings and panel discussions rolling.  One of the largest costs of our Kickstarter campaign was to master it and put it onto final DVD.  We no longer feel it is imperative to have it on hard DVD.  This entire film will be released Creative Commons and fully accessible online.  

We are asking for your support moving forward.  We will be fundraising on our website through Paypal, which translates to less fees and more direct funds to wrap this film up.  One of our biggest goals is to finish this film with a sense of urgency.  We are 100% volunteer efforts for filming and editing and have a sound guy on board with the same dedication now.  This film has been entirely self-funded thus far, but we are running dry and may have to put this film on hold until next year.  

The only leg of filming left is one final trip, but it is a lot of miles.  We aim to cover 5000 miles in just 30 days interviewing many indigenous voices, permaculture and transitionary specialists, as well as to tie in many rural communities through imagery along the way.  

We are asking you to please consider pledging whatever you can to help us cover only the gas, so we can wrap this film up and release it by fall still as planned.  With your help, this is entirely possible.  Please donate through our website at http://cascadiamatters.org/the-film.

Thank you for your ongoing support and consideration,

Cascadia Matters media collective
