10 year DocFilm, Psychedelic Salvia
10 years brothers and sisters,
Our late director had a dream of becoming a successful documentary director. She began shooting her first feature at 23 in March of 2008. Erin trailblazed on what has become the world's most comprehensive study and documentary ever made on Salvia Divinorum. The most potent naturally occurring psychedelic on earth.
She pushed me (Producer Patrick Krauss) into going big and spending over 4 years producing top interviews on every subject relating to Salvia in America. And our Imdb shows the work.
We have new links to the website. www.salviamovie.com to see pics, trailer, and more.
Erin Wyche died November 26th 2013 six weeks after her child was born. We were happy to be a new family as we were dating for over 6 years. But Erin had her blood platelets abruptly drop and complications with lupus. She died at 28 with a new baby and an unfinished movie. As a single father and the main producer of her film it's been swimming in quicksand. But luckily friends in 2016 chipped in for an amazing editor to take the ruff cut to a polished film. A brilliant musician dedicated his efforts to give us an perfect score composition. Single parenthood costs and transitioning to daycare hours to earn a decent living is the quicksand brothers and sisters.
Recently a high gofundme goal was set for a normal release. Now it's a barebones release goal to Amazon and Vimeo and others. Hopefully these earnings will accommodate a larger release. Computer and Legal costs are still over $2000.
"God be with me as I continue to work on this film. Erin thanks you from heaven."
- Patrick Krauss
If I contribute $100 can I have some guarantee to be able to screen the film locally at a library or someplace so we can have an intelligent discussion after the film.. or do you have that in a different category of your marketing plans? so glad that this will be getting completed!!
