Risks and challenges

The most evident challenge with this project has been funding. Although it has at times slowed down production on this film, we have remained steadfast and on a path to reach our goal. That goal is so very close to being actualized as all primary shooting has been completed and we are in the post production process.

At present we are asking for post-production completion funds and after that we will need completion funds for literary rights, closed captioning, DVD replication and program distribution. That could be a potential setback to the actual release date but not the end of the project itself and will not affect the delivery of incentives.

Should any unforeseen setbacks arise we will stay the course, slow and steady. So much time and passion has already been invested in this project and so many brilliant people have donated their time and talent. This demonstrates that we have a creative community that supports this project and have been patiently waiting for it to come to light.
