Ladies and Gentleman……
I finally have my Serbian documentary 100% planned! Check out the intro video that my buddy, Dalibor T was kind enough to make for me!!!! The sound has a slight echo because of me.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zcH4-7JvHQ I have hired a film producer and professional cameraman from Belgrade. The lady is AMAZING!!! She is working with a historian to get the most out of each town along the way!! The cameraman has done some beautiful work in the past!!! They will coming on the 3 week trip with me! We will depart from Subotica, Serbia on June 20th and end three weeks later in Raska. We are going to stray off the path for a 3 day tour of Tara and hit Nis! It is also going to have an episode from my hometown of Greenup, IL.. that is the little city that I was born and raised in . I will speak to locals, show the sites, food, prices of gas, etc.. We will also meet some of the locals that were CRITICAL in the baseball donations for Serbs. Chicago will also have a spot in this! I will travel to Chicago to meet some of the 600K Serbs that call my country home! We will discuss the differences, show the impact some of them have had on the USA economy, etc!
This is going to cost me A LOT of money!! I have to rent the crew a car, gasoline, hotel, food for 5, editing, dvd burning, website, equipment, insurance, etc…. My estimated cost is going to exceed $8,000 USD! That is a lot of money for a guy that has volunteered for two years!!! I really need ALL OF YOU TO HELP WITH THIS!!! You don’t have to donate $50- $1,000 dollars!!!! $5, $10, $15 etc will all add up!!!! I have over 5000 friends on Facebook and thousands of views on Youtube!!! You could all organize a little fundraising drive like my Serbian buddy, Slobo Jokic in Australia!! PLEASE!!! This is being done to benefit the Serbian people in Serbia! I am not going to profit off of this. The episodes will be uploaded for free for viewing because I know many Serbians here dont have the extra money and it wouldn’t be right to charge for it! I hope to enter it into some world wide film festivals and will be contacting local tv stations in my home state and in Serbia to try to get it aired on tv.
Here is the WEPAY.COM link… please share with all the international Serbs and their communities!!!! HVALA!!!!https://www.wepay.com/donations/serbia-through-american-eyes
ANYONE WITH A VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD CAN DONATE!!! Many Serbs have an INTERNET PURCHASING card. Those work PERFECTLY!!! Go to my WEPAY.COM site and add the amount and hit DONATE. It is that EASY!!! If you don’t have a Visa, Mastercard, American Express card you can email me for other options! firstname.lastname@example.org… I decided to go with WEPAY.COM instead of Kickstarter because they only charge 3.5%.
I have had a few of you already donate!!! It means a lot.. Vlasina Travel is a Serbian owned travel agency in Chicago that was very generous. The Mixon family met a wonderful young Serbian lady on a cruise ship and traveled to Serbia and fell in love with this country too.. They made a very large contribution! Another BIG HVALA to fellow Serbs… Angela Skocic, Mario Maric, Marko Nikolic, Marijana Stojadinovic for their donations!!!! IT REALLY MEANS A LOT!!!!!! WE CAN ALL CHIP IN TO MAKE A BETTER WORLD!!!!
Any donor will be listed in the film credits!!! PLEASE contact me for any further questions!!!!! email@example.com… If you know of any businesses, media outlets, etc that might be interested…. LET ME KNOW!!!!
