Our initial estimations were to raise $75,000 to have enough to complete a one-hour documentary. As it turned out we were effective and conscientious with the use of contributions, and actually completed the movie by a hefty amount under budget. We are quite proud of this because we did not compromise quality at any point. At this time we have kept the expenses under $30,000.
It is premature to consider the finances needed to sustain a national distribution for the film. However we are hoping to collaborate soon with a national distribution and marketing company. Once we come to terms with such a company, we then will have a more accurate picture of the funds needed for such a campaign.
