NOTE: Donors may now use major credit cards as well as PayPal for this campaign.
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!
Our documentary is almost completed after almost four years of hard work!! Please help us reach the summit. We are just about there!! Completion is set for late Fall 2013.
The last major task that is very costly is to combine all our video footage from on the mountain, archival still photos, filmed interviews, voice-over recordings and music compositions through a very complex editing process requiring the skills of our professional editors Dan White and Alex Cucchi.
The 90 minute feature-length HD film will tell the rich story of America's most climbed mountain-Mount Monadnock-nestled in the Monadnock Region of southwestern New Hampshire.
Each year, 80,000 people trek the two and one half miles up Monadnock. Mark Twain, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau have written about Monadnock. Symphonies, children's operas and dances have been composed in honor of the mountain. Images of Monadnock hang in art galleries across the country. People are married or scattered the ashes of beloved family members on the summit. Monadnock informs the physical and cultural geography of the region. And yet, more than being a source of inspiration, or a challenge to surmount-Monadnock is a universal story of man connecting with nature and therefore a story that will attract a broad audience.
Our film crew has experience in producing quality documentary films and this film will be presented at film festivals, schools and historical societies. We will seek presentation on PBS. We have been successful before in our filmmaking and have been praised by filmmaker Ken Burns for our work. Learn more about our talented team at:
