A new video

August 3rd 2017

Since the crowdfunding campaign ended almost two months ago, we’ve been recharging our batteries, mailing the perks we can at this point, working in various projects and of course planning the Burning Voices film and the journey to Pakistan, where we hope to travel in October.

Our crew had a two-day meeting in Leppävirta, Finland in June, filling in visa applications and making some camera-movement tests.

Looking forward to a busy, inspiring autumn. Thank you for making it possible.

 



Dance: Anna Venäläinen

The crowdfunding campaign InDemand

June 5th 2017

Our Indiegogo campaign was successfully funded on June 4, 2017. Thank you for the support! We have now started planning the first filming period which takes place in Pakistan.

The campaign is InDemand now, which means you can still support the making of this film! The new funds raised go towards the production costs in Pakistan (until autumn 2017), Uganda and USA and the post-production costs (editing/graphic design/music).
