Help Support The Film!

This project cannot happen without the financial help from our supporters. Although every person involved is investing their time, energy and passion – making a movie still requires a significant financial investment. The funds you contribute will go directly to production and equipment costs. Time is of the essence for this project. We need your support as soon as possible if we are going to be ready to begin production in June. If you love the outdoors, adventure, exploration, and want to be part of simple living or climate change then you believe in our mission. Please support our shared vision and help fund this film.
