The Canadian Surfer Movie

Hello everyone, Bob Purdy here, joining forces with DCD Productions and producer Carey Missler once again, the team that brought you “The Canadian Surfer Movie” we have also partnered with Manfrotto.ca, lowepro.com, pivothead, Varavon & more.

Over the last 12 months we have been working tirelessly on this very ambitious project and we believe this film could be EVEN better than our last movie "The Canadian Surfer Movie"

Already The Canadian Surfer Movie has a distribution deal with Garage Entertainment. However, to get this film Green-Lit and into production we need to raise an additional $9,000, or the film will not get made. WOW, $9,000 is a big number, but with YOUR support, we can totally do it.

It looks far more achievable if we consider the following: if we pre-sell 360 DVD's we hit our goal.The best part is, YOU can help "The Paddler Movie" come to life by simply pre-ordering a copy of this great film AND you could get your name listed in the credits of the film! What makes this even more exciting is the fact that a successful start on Kickstarter campaign will help us get "The Paddler Movie" into selected theatres! That’s right, I said THEATRES!

We are working out a deal with our distribution company to bring "The Paddler Movie" to the big screen at selected Theatres across Canada, the U.S.A and Australia and negotiating deals to possibly screen in the UK too. However, again, NONE of this will be possible unless we hit our goal of raising $9,000.00!

We have some amazing talent already agreeing to be interviewed, some of who you will recognize from "The Canadian Surfer Movie", but many, many new faces along with a truck load of previously unattainable footage will also be presented in this entertaining and educational film. We are extremely excited about the opportunity to complete this film as it will help educate the world on very important and controversial subject and do so in a very engaging fashion.

Your help in completing this project is sincerely appreciated and together we can make a film that will truly make a difference!

ABOUT KICKSTARTER

Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Every month tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music, art, film, technology, design, food, and other creative fields. Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON’T REACH OUR GOAL

If we don't raise our goal, we don't get anything. Donors pledge the amounts, but don't actually pay until the goal is reached and the funding deadline has passed. We want to avoid this so please spread the word. Everything helps! When we meet our goal we will begin shooting the film and keeping everyone up to date about EVERYTHING along the way through our social media sites, so buckle, and follow us as we embark on this crazy journey together.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

This film is only going to be possible with the help of you (THE STAND UP PADDLE SURFING FANS) (CANADIANS SURFING FANS), independent film fans, and anyone who loves a positive, thought provoking film). We want this to be your film just as much as it is ours. The more people who Participate the more chance we have of getting the story out. To help out please Twitter it, "Like" us on Facebook, email this Kickstarter link and let your friends, supporter groups, and co-workers know about the film and this campaign. We would love for people to get involved on a local level. Email Carey Missler (info@dcdproductions.ca) to get more information and become involved.

Risks and challenges

As with any projects there comes risks and challenges. We have an amazing team that can get the job from start to completion. We have two different distributors lined up to market the film upon completion of the film. Our last movie "The Canadian Surfer Movie" received two distribution deals around the world and we have the same distributors lined up for this movie.
