Cuba Highlights

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!!!

Only 8 more days until you don’t have to hear about this anymore!

But until then….

Our flight leaves on October 27, and now our fundraising deadline is fast approaching! We set a lofty goal of raising $5000 and we still have a long way to go! We are currently only a few hundred dollars away from the $1000 mark, and every little bit helps! The film is happening no matter how much money we raise, but the more we get, the better the quality will be! Here are a few things your donation will be used for:

TRAVEL HEALTH INSURANCE!!!! (to protect the film from being scrapped due to unforeseeable health issues)
SHOTGUN MICROPHONE (for great sound quality!)
EXTRA HARDDRIVES (for backing up footage)
EXTRA MEMORY CARD (for storing pictures and video)
LONG LIFE CAMERA BATTERIES (to keep us rolling in places where there’s no power!)

Don’t leave us without medical coverage. We can’t do this on our own. Let’s make these last 8 days count and help us get the equipment we need to create something amazing. Every dollar will be greatly appreciated and there are some great perks for helping us out. We appreciate your help so much!

Come on people….DONATE!!!!!

Too Legit to Quit!

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!

You’re Bummin’ Me Out, Kickstarter

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?
