We spent a year shooting the Young Farmers documentary and for that phase we invested our own time, energy and funds. We have raised some external finance to begin the editing as we needed to bring in editing expertise to make a finished feature length documentary of high quality, worthy of the contribution made by the young farmers in the film. We have been editing during the spring of 2011 and are getting close to a fine cut. We will finish the edit in the summer of 2011. Any money we raise will go to the pay for services and expertise to finish the documentary.
The budget, which will get us to the point where we have masters from which to make festival and dvd copies is £32,420. So far we have raised £20,000 and so we have still to raise £12,420.
Donations have come from a variety of private sources and from the Duke of Cornwall’s Benevolent Fund. So thanks to all those who contributed.
