"Facts lead to knowledge, but stories lead to wisdom." - Dr. Rachel Remen
The goal is to make a short film (8-12 min) about the stories of young adults with cancer. It will be shot on a sailing expedition around the Desolation Sound area of Vancouver Island on Sept. 3-10th, 2011. Using the five phase story structure we will encourage survivors to view their lives as epic stories; stories that need to be told to others so that the wisdom gained from their journey will not be lost. This film will be shown at retreats, conferences and peer supporter trainings around North America as well as a teaser before screenings of another film I produced in conjunction with Hands On Films, called Wrong Way to Hope: An Inspiring Story of Young Adults and Cancer (www.wrongwaytohope.com).
100% of the money that is raised will directly to pay for the filming, post production and editing costs (minus approx. $100 for shipping the "Rewards" to Backers and $150 for Kickstarter fees). Paul Christopher Films (www.paulchristopherfilms.ca) will be doing all the filming, editing and scoring of the film.
Thanks so much for all of your support over the past three years. We continue to do our best to honor all that support by living generously and paying it forward.
How Kickstarter Works: This project runs until August 13th, a total of 30 days. If the project is fully funded, then everyone gets charged on the same day. If the project is not fully funded, no one gets charged. If successful, we receive the funding about 2 weeks after the project funding cycle ends... which is just in time for the sailing trip! Pretty freakin awesome eh?!
