Vancouver, Canada, August 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Vancouver Director, Jesse Davidge, finished a successful Kickstarter to raise funds to create a documentary about discovery of a 100 year old Sternwheeler up in Lake Laberge, Yukon.
The documentary follows Doug Davidge as he tells the story of how he first heard of the AJ Goddard, to when he discovered it in 2008. Professional Archaeologists James Delgado and Lindsey Thomas will also be interviewed, offering their views on the significance of finds like the AJ Goddard.
“Our goal was always to create a documentary that shows everyone young and old, the passion of the people involved in the discovery,” said director Jesse Davidge. “ Now that we have the funds to do so, we're going to be able to make the dream a reality.”
Through animation, film footage of dives, and interviews of the archaeologists and hobbyists who were with Doug the day he finally found the A.J. Goddard, the film will tell the emotional story of this personal quest.
After years of creating animated projects for advertising agencies as well as award winning music videos for bands like Dan Mangan, Hey Rosetta, and the New Pornographers, Blatant Studios are eager to take on this project. “It’s really about two fascinating and difficult journeys, Doug’s and the A.J. Goddard’s. We’re really looking forward to bringing this documentary to the public,” said the film’s director Jesse Davidge.
The KickStarter campaign wrapped on August 06, 2014, and reached a goal of $11,400. Funds will be used for interviews, animating scenes, and travel costs.
