"To the ENDS" is a full length film that will share the history and vision of the Ride Nature organization and the impact it has had around the world since being founded in 2009.
Filmed over the course of 12 months, this project will document 10 trips each to a different country, collectively centered around the stories of the lives that have been impacted through action sports outreach, evangelism, and discipleship.
Our hope for this project is to give a voice to the voiceless and to highlight the everyday people with extraordinary stories that we believe not only need to be told but need to be heard.
We are excited to have you join us on this adventure as we journey "TO THE ENDS" to impact the world through action sports. Thank you for considering partnering alongside us to not only create this film but by being advocate for these leaders who are impacting their communities for the Kingdom! If you would like to join us on one of these 10 trips, check out the locations and details below.
Risks and challenges
We are excited to share that we have linked arms with INMIST Media House to bring the vision and dream of this project to life. From the initial conception and storyboarding, to each of the 10 film trips, to the final process of editing, color grading, and post production, we're so stoked to be working with INMIST all along the way to tell this story to the best of our abilities.
We would like to encourage you to check out their work and portfolio at inmistmediahouse.com.
In addition to working with INMIST we are also stoked to have the support of TOTH MEDIA (tothmedia.ca). The team at Toth Media will be working to help us communicate the vision, share the story effectively, and engage an online audience both pre-release and after through a multitude of social media channels. From pre-release advertisements to the film premiers after the film is finished, we're extremely blessed to have the support of Toth Media walking alongside us with this film.
We are extremely blessed and excited to share that both the crew at INMIST and TOTH Media are taking on this project 100% as a passion project. Because they believe in the organization and the work that we are doing and because they want to be a part of telling the stories of the leaders that we are working with around the world, both parties have come on board to do this project for FREE. Our primary expenses that will be involved in the making of this film will come solely from the travel expenses for each of the 10 trips. As you can imagine, traveling around the world with a team of 5-6, flights, lodging, food, etc will rack up quickly. In fact we have estimated that the approximate cost per trip per person will be $1,500. $1,500 x just 5 people = $7,500 x 10 trips and our budget is already at $75,000. This doesn't include any of the project expenses for the work that we do in country, outreach events we host, and/or post production expenses such as music rights, website/graphic design costs, marketing, etc. We believe that as we film the first few stories we will be able to quickly create content and begin shaping the stories that will be told and trust and pray that the rest of the needed funds will come in. If there are any of you that are interested in partnering on a larger scale we would be honored to have your support and you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We want to thank you again for taking the time to read and learn about this project and for considering partnering with us to bring this film to life!
TO THE ENDS,
