Description

indiegogo.com/stand-film

STAND, a new film from b4apres Media in association with Dendrite Studios, will take you into the heart of the largest temperate rainforest on the planet-the Great Bear in British Columbia, Canada. Hung on the skeleton of a good ol' fashioned adventure undertaken by a group of surfers, the potential effects of introducing super tankers to these pristine waters will be articulated. As the crew moves through this remote region under their own power, the landscape will be unfurled one paddle stroke at a time and punctuated by the faces and fears of the First Nation people who call this garden of Eden their home. Not just an efficient mode of transport, a stand up paddleboard expedition will be symbolic of "standing up" to preserve this last bastion of rainforest. Captured in cinematic High Definition, the film will bring the Enbridge Pipeline debate into the the collective consciousness in a way that will have you fishing in your basement for that old fluorescent wetsuit.

IndieGoGo Crowdfunding Campaign
b4apres has launched an innovative indiegogo.com campaign to raise funding for production of the film. Indiegogo.com is a popular crowdfunding platform that allows audiences to pledge different amounts of money towards creative projects to help make them a reality. In return backers receive various rewards for their donation. Perhaps most significantly, backers of STAND become part of the the production team.
Supporting STAND is easy. Backers simply choose their reward and pledge via credit card or PayPal. Some of our awesome rewards include a cedar paddleboard handmade by the children of Bella Bella, prints from renowned First Nations artist Ian Reid and the opportunity to join the crew on the expedition.

Why We Need Funding
All funds raised will go towards production costs including travel expenses, music rights, post production, etc. We already have all the equipment necessary to shoot and edit the film, meaning all funds raised will be used to finish this film so others can discover this pristine part of the world for themselves. This is a passion project with everybody involved being extremely committed to the preservation of wild places.
