✧ in–kind donations
✧ monetary donations, any $ helps

We're fundraising to pay people, update equipment, secure lodging, food and travel arrangements. 63% of the budget is for compensation. We're grateful for all the support. So far we've raised 40% of our goal through grants, fellowships, social media and screening fees.
We're in pre-production. 50% of the film is done, filmed and edited already. This is the 1st feature film for award winning director Fox Maxy (Ammodo Tiger Short Award). In the last year WATERTIGHT's had huge support. We received the Sundance Institute's Documentary Film Program (DFP).
