Contributing to the Film: (to share with potential donors)
This project has been supported thus far in part from a National Geographic All Roads Seed grant (awarded in 2011) and contributions from friends and family. A professionally-edited film with a strong following will allow the filmmakers to raise additional funds for further post-production, approach international broadcasters, and distribute the film to audiences worldwide.
The filmmakers completed a successful Kickstarter Campaign to raise nearly $29,000 for the film, and are now seeking additional contributions to cover the film’s overall production budget of $85,000. Even small contributions can make a huge difference for such independent doc films.
Contributions can be directed to their fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas. Flying Paper is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions that support Flying Paper must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
