Doc about New Orleans loses everything (please re-post)
Over the past 8 months, I've been involved as an Associate Producer on the documentary No Cross, No Crown. The following note comes from our production team. Please take a moment to read and re-post. Your support is genuinely appreciated.
Dear Friends and Fellow Filmmakers,
On Tuesday Oct 3, 2006, the apartment/editing suite for our feature documentary NO Cross, NO Crown was burglarized and all of our tools for it, including LaCie external hard drives (AND their back-ups!!!) that stored all the footage and the three-hour rough edit were stolen. The film explores New Orleans, a town that contributed to the fabric of American music, yet only after it was hit by one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, did it become apparent that the country never truly knew her.
Take a look at the trailer here: http://www.dinomonsterfilms.com/ncnc/NCNCtrailerWEB.mov or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZY_ZiAsCUU.
Short of the miracle of getting everything returned in its original condition AND content, we are forced to start from scratch. This film was a passion project for the filmmakers, without true funding, and so much like the patched effort to even get the equipment in the first place, we are having to start from square one. With your help, we can put the pieces back together and tell the story of the music and culture in New Orleans. Eight months worth of work is gone, but it can all be re-built with your help. Any donations – monetary, equipment, services, etc., would be ever so appreciated, and we will be sure to list you in the film's credits.

Thank you very much for your support!
