So much going on! Today an interview with “The Summer Help” director Melody Gilbert was published on Inverse (click here to read the article) that explains her life as a documentary filmmaker. Read it and you will see what drives her to make films like “The Summer Help.”
And a quick update about the Kickstarter campaign (www.bit.ly/TheSummerHelp). As of today, we are 45% funded and there are 117 lovely people who have generously backed this project. We are almost half way there with only 8 days to go! But we still have a long way to go and we need your help to get the to the finish line. If you are thinking of donating, please don’t wait!
We have introduced some new rewards to entice you to contribute including a fly fishing vacation in Colorado and film festival passes to the Provincetown Film Festival in 2016. There is only one of each of these rewards, so go to the Kickstarter and reel in these prizes before they are gone!
We are very excited about going into the final stretch of this crowdfunding campaign! Remember…YOU are very important to the success of this campaign, so please share the link or, better yet, tell your friends about it directly in an email (or just share this post).
And remember this as you head out the door for your labor day holiday weekend: there are many international students who will be cleaning your hotel rooms and serving your food on your last summer vacation, like Tsveti from Bulgaria. She writes about the documentary in the tweet below.
When you watch The Summer Help, you will know more about them!
PS: Check out our instagram pics to see the students at work. Here are some of the pics, including international students who paint houses, fix bikes, make chocolate, clean motel rooms and work at amusement parks.
