As the Paralympic teams get ready to head down to Rio for the 2016 games, and USA1 Sonar is the team to beat after winning the World Championships in the Netherlands, the team at Racing to Rio is headed to our own finish line.
With multi-Emmy Award winning cinematographer Bill Mills behind the camera, we have amazing interviews with the USA1 Sonar team and footage of USA1 practicing with CAN1. We also have great interviews and footage with Warrior Sailing, Maureen McKinnon & Ryan Porteous (SKUD-18), the phenomenal Betsy Allison and so much more.
Now all we have left is to film a few more interviews and to purchase footage from several adaptive sailing events, then we are ready to send this to the editor to make movie magic. After that it’s titles, color correction, and music. Then we are off to festivals and distribution to share this great sport with the world.
However, we need your help to push Racing to Rio through the finish. We must raise a final $75,000 to complete this amazing movie – this is where you come in as a critical part of our winning team!
Please donate right now…don’t wait another minute – Help us over the finish line!
