Q: With releases of other documentaries about native americans. What will make yours so different?
A: All Documentaries that are based on the Native Americans are great videos filled with great facts and history. Everyone who watches these videos get the opportunity to learn about a people that at one time covered this nation from sea to sea.
My film is also based on facts and history but it is different because it is intended to reach millions of people who currently have no knowledge of the Native American people of south Louisiana. Primarily the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw.
Q: Why Do you want to make this documentary?
A: I believe in the power of filmmaking to inspire others to cultivate a way of thinking within their communities.
Q: Why should I support this film?
A: For those of you who have never heard of the Biloxi, Chitimacha, Choctaw, Acolapissa and the Attakapas. Our film tells a great story that will finish with a great learning experience.
Most Americans grew up in school learning about the great plain Indians, like the Sioux, the Cheyenne, the Cherokee, the Apache, the Navajo or even the Mohican. This film will hopefully enlighten more people in this country of the tribes of southern Louisiana, and make these tribes more of a recognizable name in our schools and libraries around our country.
Q: Does it really make that much difference in production value when you get more than your minimum goal?
A: Absolutely, YES! Filmmaking, as with any business, is all about how many people we can employ who will lend their talents to the project and distribute or delegate the intense rigor of production. If too few people are doing too many things, detail is lost.
Filmmaking is rigorous but the more funds that are available the more the load is eased and the better the resulting product.
