Initial funding has come from Headframe Spirits, and a grant from The Montana Film Office. Principal photography and physical production / filming is 90% complete, and now the project must be completed. Funds will be used to finance film completion, post-production, editing, distribution and festival submissions. Distribution will be complemented by a robust social media strategy and development of online partnerships to gain audience and exposure.
By sharing Butte’s untold story from a perspective that is compelling to our community and the world, this project will provide job opportunities and economic development opportunities and bolster tourism in Butte while creating national and international interest in the area.
A special thanks goes out from the depths of our hearts to these backers who helped support our Kickstarter campaign with the contributions of $150 or more. Your support and level of confidence in this campaign is the same fuel that ignites the pioneer community of Butte today. We are touched with your graciousness.
