There are many other people whose support will be required to make this project a reality. Some are already in discussions about their roles in the production, and others we probably haven’t even met yet. Our biggest current talent and manpower needs on the production team are regarding motion graphics, which are going to be a significant part of illustrating The Value Of Freedom. But there is much work to be done to produce a film, and we are going to need support in all areas of the process. If you believe in The Value Of Freedom, and are interested in supporting this project in any way, from working to financing to just getting the word out, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
