Salvation Mountain Film


In 2010 we journeyed into the California desert and met Leonard Knight, the creator of Salvation Mountain. His story was so inspiring that we set out to make a documentary of it. We hosted a Kickstarter campaign to get Leonard a birthday present for his 80th birthday and we achieved that goal. Everything was going great until a few weeks later.

Leonard's health quickly deteriorated. His caretaker, Kevin, decided to take hime to an assisted care facility. Shortly thereafter, on December 15th, 2011, Kevin, passed away suddenly at a very young age. we were cut off from Leonard and Salvation Mountain. Due to a lot of politics, egos, and red tape created by a new board of directors we were unable to freely film at the mountain like kevin and Leonard had allowed us. On top of that, we never filmed our last interviews with Kevin or Leonard.

On February 10th, 2014, Leonard Knight passed away. I feel as though it is nothing more than an honor to Leonard to return to the Mountain and finish this film. A testimony to who he was, his spirit, and his work.

This is where I need to ask for your help. I need to fund raise in order to accomplish this and finish the film. These funds are to help cover the cost of travel (Detroit to California), Lodging, 2 days of filming at Salvation Mountain, and Post Production. Contributors will get a copy of the final film.

Our goal is to get this film out there, into festivals, and share Leonard's message of "God is love, and his love is for everyone." to as many people as possible.
