We have decided to postpone the start of our crowdfunding campaign until September, because summer would not be the best timing for the launch. We tried film funds, but with no success until now, so we will rely hevily on crowdfunding on GlobalGiving once we finally launch the campaign. In the meantime we are working on the film, many new scenes coming in from Lili, who is doing all the animations.
I am now traveling in Russia, to film about Global Fund funded HIV prevention services in the country. We are visiting 6 cities, and film about amazing harm reduction sefvices for drug users, sex workers, people in the LGBTQ comminuty.
While in St. Petersburg, I walked around to find location scenes for the animation. I made pictures at corridors of houses where people used to inject, and I went to the Botkin Hospital, where Kostya was treated. It was very emotional, and meant a lot for me.
Now we are off to Ekaterinburg, where we continue our filming.
