Hello beautiful people!

We are leaving Montreal in 15 days and we are still missing important equipment. At this point we are left with no money for equipment rentals/purchases. Hopefully you can help us!

Here’s the list,

Boom pole, Zeppelin, Wind protector

Lav Mic

XLR Adapter for mic to camera
Tri Pod/Mono Pod, (Shoulder Pad)
Camera/Lens cleaning supplies
Screw-in Filters for the lenses (ND 3,6,9, Polarizer, Grads)
Case for lenses
Extra 2 x 8GB Cards

3x 500 GB Travel Hard Drives (Irene has a terabyte Lacie External HD and she is willing to trade it for two small 500GB. She is also willing to trade them back when we comeback from Argentina).

Keeping you up to date, the Carnavaleando crew has successfully purchased the tickets to Salta, Argentina! We are leaving on January 23 from Toronto, passing by New York, Chile and finally landing on Buenos Aires on the morning of the 24th. Our trip will last a month and a half (coming back to Toronto on March 9th). In Salta, we will keep you up to date with brief news and pictures.

We would like to let you know that so far we have collected $1800 through crowd funding! This support has made it possible for the project to move forward, however, we are still asking for donations and/or investments. At this point we need to cover the cost of key equipment as well as food and transportation while in Argentina.

Any amount will be greatly appreciated, $10 is a meal for the whole crew!

Thank you for all your help and encouragement!
