As stated on the fundraising page:

In 2012, $7,600 (after Kickstarter fees) was raised through a Kickstarter campaign. While great, it simply wasn’t enough. Those monies got the filmmakers through three years of archival research and production: location filming during the production phase of the film. Interviews were conducted Mrs. Howe and Louis Wiehle in California. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, Archives Director, Fellow, and foremost Frank Lloyd Wright expert at Taliesin West. Location photography at Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Interviews with 13 original Howe clients and 3 apprentices from Howe’s post-Fellowship practice.

While the film is done, it is now time to pay licensing fees to the artists and technicians who are heavily relied upon so the film can be released and come into your home.  Certain fees are unavoidable: Three architectural archives, where Howe and relevant Frank Lloyd Wright materials were supplied from, the musician, animators and the graphic designer who all contributed to this film.

Preservation Alliance of Minnesota, a 501(c)3 non-profit, has partnered with this film and IRS qualifying tax donation documentation can be provided to recognize your help in this important preservation project.

The importance of this film can't be overstated--for too long individuals like John H. Howe have not had the attention paid to their contributions to Organic Architecture. Documentary films like this one are part of the effort to rectify this. Please follow the link to donate to the cause and check out some pretty sweet Howe-related gifts you can only get through a donation as well! Donate here.
