Why We Need Your Help....
Although we have receive a few grants to fund our film, we need additional funds to complete our project. The budget is significantly greater than we originally anticipated. We initially sought to create a short documentary film with funding received in 2011 from the National Park Service's, Confinement Sites Grant Program.
Recently in May 2104, we were fortunate and honored to be awarded a grant of $20,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts. To do justice to our narrative structure and premise, we decided to create a feature-length film.
We are finding that we have additional costs to cover for travel, shooting in multiple states, production design, sound and distribution. With every penny earned from our Kickstarter campaign, the Poston Community Alliance, a non-profit organization, will apply them to the cost of producing and distributing our film.
Thank you for your interest and support.
