Here is a long-overdue short video from our travels through Cuba in January 2017. Cuba was one of the countries most devastated by recent hurricanes. They have been largely skipped in the international aid effort and the United States makes it nearly impossible to help them in any way. We are researching ways to help and will report back if we find something legitimate. Please comment if you have any ideas!!!
Please subscribe to our YouTube channel and stay tuned for more videos!!!
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to our indiegogo campaign so far!!! You guys are truly awesome. We are up to $350 with 90 days to go! Click here if you want to donate!
In recent news, Zach got his travel shots! He has been “a little bit infected with several tropical diseases” for the past few days now, hahaha. So there will be a lovely video post of that experience coming soon!
The most exciting news is that we officially registered our production company as a business! That basically involved filing a notarized form and paying $15 at the courthouse to make Journey Lost Productions legally recognized. We also opened up a business account with Chase so that we can keep all of the funds we raise for the film completely separate and provide copies of our bank statement to donors if they ask. It also means we can write off all of our equipment as business expenses when we file our taxes next year. This is all so new to me but the fact that I’m now officially a business owner makes me happy. Journey Lost Productions is real, yo!
We finally have our fundraising page live! Please support our documentary! Click the link to help fund us and get some amazing perks! Thank you all so much!!!!
I want this blog to not only be about our adventure but also about the process of creating a documentary. Not just the fun parts, but the trials and tribulations too. So in the interest of full disclosure, here’s the latest hitch in our plan.
Kickstarter rejected us.
Why? I have no idea. It’s not a huge deal because we can just use Indiegogo to fundraise instead. But I still really want to know why! Anyone have any insight into how kickstarter accepts and rejects projects?
