Hello Everyone and Happy Holidays.

In order to raise the necessary funds to complete my documentary about Jeju Island, I’ve created a fundraising campaign on a crowd funding site called Indiegogo.

I need to raise approximately $20,000 to complete the film. Those funds will allow me to hire an assistant editor, a graphic artist, someone to mix audio, a special effects editor, and someone to select and acquire music. In addition, I will have to travel to NYC and to Washington, D.C. to interview Charles Hanley and Bruce Cumings, both authorities on Korea after WWII.

In addition, archival film, photos, and documents that will be used in the film require a trip to the National Archives in D.C. and there are some costs for reproducing those various media.

I’m hoping to raise $10,000 on this campaign. All tax deductible donations will be made through the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space, Bruce Gagnon’s not for profit 501 (c) 3. Bruce has been the most significant person enabling me to go to Jeju through his contacts and financial contributions.

Hopefully I can raised the balance through several grants from foundations that fund documentary type films.

Even if you are not able to donate, please visit the Indiegogo site and leave a comment. Indiegogo uses an logarithm based on the number of visits, contributions, and comments during the first three days of a campaign in order to position the campaign higher up on their site.

You can also help by posting the link of your FB page, Twitter, and by forwarding this email to friends.

Thanks so much for your previous support that made my trip to Jeju possible. I will keep you all posed as to progress on the film as well as the campaign to raise funds.
