Happy 2013!

January 2, 2013

2012 was a very productive year for From the Ground Up; we have a rough cut that we screened and received great feedback for us to work from, we posted a new short on-line with more in progress, and we were a Bay Area Video Coalition MediaMaker Fellow.

The BAVC fellowship was a great experience and we felt so privileged to be a part of such an accomplished group of filmmakers.  This fellowship has made a major impact on the project, refining the long term plan for the film and identifying ways to make the media more interactive and how it can help foster community building. We are very excited about utilizing new technology and social media to reach more people and in more meaningful ways. We cannot wait to show you – so stay tuned!

We also raised $4,280 with our end of year crowd-funding campaign, thank you! So many people contributed and spread the word for our campaign, we cannot tell you how grateful we are for your support.  We will need to raise more money in 2013, the final stages of this project are going to cost tens of thousands of dollars, but we can do it, with your continued support.  We are planning more seedling sales, house parties, and another crowd-funding campaign in the spring.  You do not need to wait for any of these, you can make a tax-deductible donation any time through our fiscal sponsor the San Francisco Film Society – just go here

So, now we are going to be working on the film and holding rough cut screenings, if you would like to participate in one of these please email me and we can put you on the list. We will be putting up more shorts on YouTube and Vimeo, so please subscribe if you want to see the latest. We are going to be building a new website!  This is super exciting and we cannot wait to get going on this.  We would love some help with this as well, if you are a designer and want to participate or know someone who is, please contact me.

Our plan is to finish the movie in 2013, this is going to be tough, but the time has come.  We want to get this movie out in the world where it can inspire people to start growing some of their own food, meeting neighbors and eating healthier.

Plant a seed. Nurture it. Grow something amazing.

Thank you again and I hope your 2013 is fruitful and delicious!
