Our objective is two fold;
1. Raise enough funds to help Agustin with living expenses by purchasing the helicopter and his home. He will retain both and at the end of his life the helicopter will be preserved to be a lasting legacy of who Agustin is and how he spent his life.
2. We would also like to raise enough to try and get Agustin up in a helicopter.
All of this will be filmed to make a feature length film about this amazing man.
So far we have had two previous rounds and have raised about half the funds needed.
“Even though I live in a house full of water, I have been grateful fighting for it (the helicopter).”
~ Agustin, "The Helicopter Man"
"Everything is Incredible"
Beginning in 2007 Producer-Directors Tyler Bastian, Trevor Hill and Tim Skousen embarked on a journey to make a film that tells a story of a man Tyler met in Honduras over a decade ago. "Everything is Incredible" is about Agustin, who is physically disabled from polio, yet has spent 50 years building a surprisingly advanced helicopter out of re-bar, bicycle parts and wood. His dream to take flight has inspired us to capture his spirit, attitude, and perspective in an emotional film about determination and the purpose of life goals.
The film has an original score by Kirby Heyborne and Tyler Hill.
