Day 98

Response from the Nat Geo Channel:

Hi Robert,

Thanks for contacting the Nat Geo Channels regarding your project. It sounds incredibly interesting. Before proceeding, I’d like to clarify which type of submission this is. Are you looking to strictly sell the half hour or looking for presale/coproduction financing to complete the series? I can only consider finished product as my department does not have a budget beyond completed acquisitions. Please clarify so we can proceed in evaluating your submission as efficiently as possible.

All the best,

Global Acquisitions Coordinator

My thoughts:
So they might be interested if I finance the whole thing and give them a finished series…Unfortunately, I don’t have the time or the money to do that!! The only way I could afford to take time from my regular job, to travel and make this thing happen, is if I had a production company footing the bill.

So it’s still an uphill battle from here… but it feels great to try!
