Bats in North America are disappearing at an alarming rate, while human beings have yet to recognize their great contribution and significance in our communal habitat. These fascinating mammals are crucial to the healthy equilibrium of our ecosystem. This film will bring to life the struggle for the survival of bats, especially with regards to White Nose Syndrome, the mysterious disease that has killed up to seven million bats in North America.

The fungus that causes White Nose Syndrome has just been detected in Bracken Cave outside of San Antonio, Texas, which is home to the largest bat colony on the continent.

I began the process of making the film in 2013, and after screening the short film in festivals, and teaming up with The Wild Lens Collective, I decided it was time to continue and make a comprehensive, feature documentary that focuses on these issues.

We need funds to film on location in Texas and will use the funds raised to pay for permits, travel, equipment and crew expenses for one week in July 2019. Be part of the endeavor to continue filming stories about bats across North America by making a donation today.

We deeply appreciate your support!

Thank you all so much for your contributions so far. Your donations already have helped me pay for one airfare to Texas. I'll be posting updates to this campaign in the coming days, with new videos and new information about who, what and where we'll be filming in Texas. These are very exciting times for this little bat film. Stay tuned and spread the word!
