When asked why Indiegogo was appealing, Dean noted that "Indiegogo has provided us with the perfect platform that allows us to attempt to raise much needed funds for the completion of the documentary but also helps us to reach our primary goal of spreading the story's message of charity, inclusion and community to as many people as possible." Consequently, the documentary team is hoping to acquire around $50,000 of funding not just to complete the documentary but also to make a 15-20 minute promo film that will be made available for free to athletics organizations, advocacy groups and marathons worldwide to help inspire others to create similar projects in their own communities.
The film was shot over a period of months in 2013 for free, using a number of volunteers and generously donated equipment, including GoPros, Red cameras, Canon DSLRs and Sony HDCams. Monies raised through Indiegogo will be used for colour grading, sound editing and mixing, original and licensed music, language transcriptions, legal fees and distribution and festival costs. Also, approximately one week of additional shooting in March and April 2017, around this year's Prague Half Marathon, with most of the original subjects and exploring further story lines.
