Covid has changed the landscape and made it more difficult (and more expensive) to collaborate on important stories to protect people and the natural world. This has really impacted our current project, Marrow of the Mountain, which we are fiscally sponsoring. Covid hit while the filming (director, producer, cinematographer) were in Equador filming in early 2020. Because of COVID-19 they were unable to finish their production and spent most of the time holed up in an apartment in Quito.
They were able to raise more funds through kickstarter with a successful Marrow of the Mountain: the COVID Emergency Fundraiser.
We admire the film teams dedication to this project and are proud that they are back in the country continuing the important work. They are currently in Equador filming what we hope is the final major production before the final post production of the documentary film can continue.
Remember, even though the kickstarter project is over, you can still donate to the cause. Any money donated to the Marrow of Mountain fund is going to reimburse costs of gear and direct filming expenditures and helps the in country production team. Your donations can help this story continue.
