We are independent filmmakers,…
We are independent filmmakers, creating our first film as a labor of love, outside of regular jobs in Television. The documentary is based on the experience of families in the Catskill Mountains during it’s heyday (1920’s-70’s).
There is no substantial bankroll. All of the individuals working on the project are actually doing it out of a common interest in the project or as a favor(associates and friends).
We have been obtaining footage, letters, photographs and postcards from people through their mutual generosity, but mostly their shared desire to make a statement about this cultural experience.
We pay all expenses to ship it, copy it, etc. We will send all masters back to you (in perfect condition!)following the duplication. As far as
photos go, you can easily send JPEGS (High Resolution if possible). All
people will be credited in the film. We have already received a generous
amount of resources from people and we also have asked for releases from them) to protect all involved, including the people who donate their footage.
At the present time we are collecting all of the above as well as setting up interviews with many of the “lifers”….If you know of any families or friends that spent time in the “borscht belt”, please pass this note along to them.
We truly appreciate all of your assistance in this project. Please stay
