Pushing The Envelope Documentary

$1,810 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 6 months
Since May of 2017 I have been working on this documentary about a fascinating Master Penman named Bill Lilly. Initially the idea was a micro doc, a film of around five to seven minutes in length.  You can see a couple examples here -   http://www.timcourlas.com/video-producerdirector-and-documentary/

However, after spending time with Bill and learning about his life, the project has grown into a full length documentary. I have been funding the endeavor myself up to this point including travel to Louisville, Albuquerque, Birmingham, Boston and DC. I am seeking funding now for post production. I am entering the interview transcription/paper edit phase and will soon be editing an assembly cut. My vision for the finished film is to make ample use of animation and to have the film professionally scored. These are things I cannot do and will have to pay for. 

I am working on a website and trailer and hope to go live soon.

Thanx for your support! It means a lot.

Bill just got home from his third surgery since the bike accident last summer. He is in good spirits, best I've seen in a year. We went out to lunch yesterday. He mentioned he needs to put on some weight so I got him a PayDay bar. He ate it and we talked a bit.
