73 backers pledged $6,360 to help bring this project to life.

Counting down...

With 3 days to go, NOW, FORAGER has amassed 62 backers and 145% of its funding target.

Supreme thanks to the old and new friends who have pledged what they could, and others who have helped by spreading the word.

Each phase of making a film takes a huge effort--financial, logistical, emotional. And each phase is kind of like starting over. This experience has put wind in our sails to carry us into post-production--and we humbly appreciate the help you've given us.

      Hi, Jason and Julia
      I hope you contact me and other North American Mycological clubs when your film is finished. Many clubs would probably either buy or pay rental to view Now, Forager. If you want a distribution list, go to the North American Mycological Society website at It lists all the clubs and contacts.

      Good luck with your project. I, for one, am extremely interested in your film
      Cheers, Jean
