Be part of Trek to Bucha!
Can you feel it? Fatigue of the war in Ukraine has already begun to creep in with surging gas and food prices blamed on the unending war. The refrain goes something like this: Can’t we just let Putin have his way and get back to the way things were?
But it’s far more than economics at stake in Ukraine. “Live Free or Die” is the New Hampshire state motto which all Americans understand in their bones. It is what the war in Ukraine is really all about. Ukrainians don’t want to live like Russians. They want to live like us - and have grown used to it since their independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. They will not let the Russians take it away from them. And they will be great partners in an even stronger Free World currently under attack by Putin. Ukraine must come out of this conflict all the stronger for it.
Which is why I am coming to you. We need about 29k to finish Trek to Bucha in a way that will make it attractive for outlets like PBS, Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, and others to put on their platforms for worldwide audiences. (Check out our budget at Budget and Timeline)
Specifically, we are raising funds to help cover Trek to Bucha's post-production costs. We have already covered the 39k pre-production and production expenses which were incurred during our shoots in Ukraine throughout March/April 2022 (See Trek to Bucha - Synopsis). We also have a rough-cut trailer ready to go!
Now we need to cover the costs of editing, graphics, and other elements to make the film as engaging and entertaining as possible.
I’d like to invite you to join us and our partners to create this new and potentially important feature documentary which we are planning to premiere the week of August 10th in Boston.
Whether you are a potential sponsor, donor, institution, or a friend with a few bucks to spare, please go to our website at Trek to Bucha - Fundraising to learn more. You might also want to check out our pdf file Trek to Bucha – Deck for a quick overview of what we are to.
Collectively we can make a difference and remind those in Ukraine they are not alone as we stand with them.
And, as always, thanks for your continued support.
Steve Richards, Managing Director
