Odyssey of the Mind inspires students across the globe to work together, face unique challenges and think outside the box. Teams compete in almost 30 countries and yet hardly anyone we meet even knows the program exists. So we've set out to follow a team, capturing this incredible problem-solving process for all the world to see.

You might say we're Odyssey lifers – local, state and international volunteers who love sharing this experience with new generations of students. And for us, it's personal. Because once upon a time, we were students...who happened to form an Odyssey team...and who eventually grew up, got married and decided to make a movie.

But we need your help! We've started this project, and we can't finish it on our own. Expenses are looming: file storage, editing, music and color correction, just to name a few.

Every little bit helps, so contribute if you can, and stay tuned for updates!

Hello, everyone! It's been a week since we launched our campaign. We hope all of you in the U.S. had a great Thanksgiving!

As we mentioned on our Facebook page, facebook.com/ootmdoc, we're especially thankful for everyone who's helped us keep this project alive. Whether you've made a contribution, shared the campaign with friends, or offered words of encouragement -- your support means the world to us!

Our team has the weekend off, but we've been hard at work logging footage. This process involves reviewing what we've shot and summarizing the content of each take along with making note of interesting visuals. This way, when it comes time to start editing, we'll have an easier time sifting through days and days (and days) of footage.

In the next few months, we'll be sharing some fun behind-the-scenes content, and we're also working on a way to get a digital copy of the finished film to all who've donated. So stay tuned, and please continue sharing the campaign with your friends and social media circles.

Thanks again!

- Gar & Alyssa
