Dear Bendies and Friends of Bendies,
Thank you all for your support in our first kickstarter!
Unfortunately we didn’t make our goal but we gave it a shot! We still want to make this documentary happen!
Much of it is happening out of pocket, and more so now as we didn’t make out goal. We are 100% committed to making this whole thing real.
We just have to be less ambitious and fit ourselves to the resourced and interest available.
We have launched a new kickstarter with a goal of $5000.
This will cover some very basic equipment, hired help, artist fees in Mongolia, and equipment transportation. The crew and equipment will not be as we hoped for but it will definitely improve the quality of what is made so that it is more cleanly and professionally made. Anything over the goal just improves it more!
Here is our link to the new kickstarter…
Thank you for your support and following this project. Quite a few contortion students of Serchmaa from the Bay Area are going on this trip to do intensives in Mongolia, see the Naadam festival, and visit the various contortion schools in Ulaanbaatar. This many people and the ageing of the legendary contortionists in Mongolia make this film and photo documentary necessary this year.
Thank you again for your interest and love of contortion and we hope to bring back something beautiful and inspiring for you!
The Clean Socks Team!
