Spirits in the Stone is a wholly-independent film made with passion, dedication, sacrifice and care. We have a clear vision of what is required to complete this important documentary and are seeking additional support and sponsorship to make this vision a reality.
We seek support to:
Complete rigourous archival and historical research and purchase relevant materials.
Reassemble our creative production team, hire equipment and travel across Australia and France to conduct final filming and interviews.
Hire a talented team to create high-quality animations, graphics, music and sound track.
Edit the final cut of the film.
Master and grade the footage and sound.
