Funds for a film documentary- Tad's Emerging World

Donation protected
Hi friends and film freaks! I need some friendly funding to finish my film, Tad's Emerging World. This film is about my journey documenting the hidden treasure of the Southwest known as Glen Canyon. This epic landscape of red sandstone walls, flowing rivers and cultural sites is under a giant reservoir called Lake Powell. The lake is at its lowest water level since the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam because of human consumption, climate change and drought. It is time to go on an adventure to explore this canyon I never knew about except in books, films and photos. I'll be shooting with an old Crown Graphic 4x5 camera. This camera documented Glen Canyon pre-dam from an incredible photographer, Tad Nichols, from 1950 to 1963. He was hanging with Katie Lee and trying to save this beautiful place with his photographs. What is emerging? What will be learned? What is preserved? What will develop? Glen Canyon’s destiny is still unknown.
Kish wants to expose Glen Canyon and inspire younger generations not to repeat this tragedy. It's time to learn more about saving our public lands through art, adventure and advocacy.
The funds from this GoFundMe will go toward archival footage and photographs, music rights, editing, distribution, sound and color engineering and production costs.
Please have a look at the trailer and thank you for your support...
