Hello Good People! Our cameras are on the ground today, January 25, 2022, in Akumal, prior to the opening of the Arts Festival January 28-30! We’re very excited by the footage we’re getting. Director of Photography Pablo Latapi is shooting with a Canon C70 camera (Netflix approved!), and we’re using boom and lavalier microphones to capture high quality sound. Fabulous collaborator and editor Joey Jones is an integral part of the process, so that when we get to the editing stage, we’ve developed a shared cinematic language and mutual understanding of the unfolding story. It’s an incredibly exciting process. Now, I just need to raise the rest of the money to cover our expenses. To match the Community Engagement grant of $10,000, we still need to raise $5,600. Every bit counts and helps ensure that we have a meaningful, rich story about creative placemaking to share with the world. My trusted colleague, Natalie Marrero, is Executive Director of the 501(c)3 organization, Everybody Dance, Now! (EDN), that serves as our fiscal sponsor and assures that your contribution is tax deductible according to the law, and will get to me at Catalyst Muse, and to our film. To Donate: everybodydancenow.org/donate#fiscalsponsorships, scroll down to Catalyst Muse/Akumal Documentary Film, click on the Donate button and follow the prompts to securely contribute to the film. You will receive a letter from Catalyst Muse thanking you. Want to learn more about the film and the festival?
