Try This At Home, is a documentary about the Yoyo A Go Go music festival and the creative community in Olympia, Washington.

In 1999, we were three young film school grads determined to make our first documentary.  We called up Pat Maley, founder of Yoyo Records in Olympia, Washington, and asked to shoot Yoyo A Go Go, the five-day indie music festival he and his friends were staging that summer.

He gave us his blessing—and $1,300 of seed money to fund the production. When we arrived, we had no idea what we were about to witness.  We were immersed in a group of artists united by an idea.  Anyone should be able to express their full creativity in an open and supportive environment.  We spent the next several years editing our 150 hours of footage and preparing for the day we would share this idea. 

You can see the trailer for Try This At Home here:


As of now, we have locked picture on Try This At Home, but we need to raise $30,000 to finish the documentary. 

The bulk of that money will pay for the performers' music rights, and the rest will cover the final sound editing and mixing, color correction and the fees associated with showing the film. 

This is the launch of our fundraising campaign and we love that we are going to include you in our efforts. We appreciate your donation and we are extremely grateful for your consideration. These funds will help us to complete Try This At Home and celebrate a moment, a creative movement and an empowered community.

With your contribution to this cause you may choose a copy of the film or amazing handmade gift.  We will thank you all on our website and in the film's closing credits.  Also, supporters of the film will be given the chance to bid on unique creations, from artists in the film, that will change from week to week.

We recognize that you can't give to every campaign, but we thank you all for supporting independent art.  Please consider making your friends aware of   Try This At Home through your social networks. With your permission we will continue to update you as we celebrate the completion of our film.
