At 83, Alice Gerrard is one of America's living treasures. She continues to create new music, perform with diverse collaborators, and inspire the next generation of old time and Americana musicians.
This is the time to make this film. You can help us do it.
The Old Time Crowdfunding Campaign
We are excited to launch the Old Time Crowdfunding Campaign with a goal to raise $20,000 in the Fall of 2017. As with most crowdfunding projects, we will surpass our goal with many ($25-$50) smaller contributions, a good number of medium sized ($100 - $250) contributions, and a handful of larger ($500 and up) contributions. We welcome all levels of support.
In addition to making your own donation to the film, your efforts to recruit your own circle of film contributors and spread the word via your social and music networks are all critical to our success. It takes a village. And we are counting on you to help us build community around the film.
This campaign will help us complete production work and begin editing the film. On the production front, Kenny is making plans to travel across the country to interview Alice's family, friends, and collaborators. He will be hiring cinematographers to work with him on these shoots. Kenny and Alice are also looking for opportunities to shoot additional scenes related to the film story. Our fundraiser will also support the start of post production work to begin Fall of 2017 and run into 2018.
Folks are asking, "When can we see the film?" Our plan is to reach our total fundraising goal of $120,000 in 2018. This Old Time Crowdfunding Campaign is an important piece of this goal and it would be great if we blast past $20,000
UPDATE OCTOBER 2, 2017
