MOTHERLOAD EXTRAS 1-3 and Fundraising Victory

Campaign at 5,500.jpeg

Racing to get the film ready to screen at film festivals at the National Bike Summit in early 2019, we found ourselves in need of more funds! Luckily From the Heart Productions took us on as a fiscally sponsored project, allowing us to offer donors a tax-deduction. I launched a crowdfunding campaign HERE and soon received a challenge from an anonymous donor: he/she would contribute $1000 IF we could raise that much more before 2018 ended.

In order to motivate potential backers I promised to publish one MOTHERLOAD “EXTRA” (an awesome but deleted scene from the film) on each of the final days of 2019. You can watch all three HERE.

It was exhausting but very satisfying to see how well these scenes played as individual pieces, and, it worked! We exceeded the matching challenge and finished out 2019 having raised $8,050!

I will spend the next month in color correction, sound mix and licensing, all the while hoping for good news from festivals.


Peddle Powered Food Drive in Fairfax, CA--Saturday, December 3, 2016

For our second Kidical Mass in Fairfax, CA: we are partnering with Sustainable Fairfax and Reducex2 to organize a Food Drive on Bikes! Yes, we need those awesome and powerful cargo bikes. 

The plan is to bring non-perishables and pick up donated food to "feed" the giant Turkey sponsored by the Food Bank at Town Center, Corte Madera. We will also be documenting this event for both MOTHERLOAD, and for a national television spot to promote giving and making healthy choices for our bodies and our environment. (We will have releases to sign at the event). We hope you can join us!!
