Making Financially Contributions to "If I Could"

 Q: Financially, how did you pull this off? 

In the beginning, money was the last thing on my mind, even though I knew somewhere in the far reaching corner of my brain that it was a serious issue for us. My enthusiasm for the story encouraged my partners to "jump off of the cliff" with me. My partner, Michael Miller, had been with me 20 years ago when I made the first film. There was very little debate, it was just understood amongst us that we would make this film. With that said, we weren't fools and we knew that we had to get to work to raise some money.

Actually, on day one, our crew was there filming without any funding. I'll tell you this much... we didn't leave home without our American Express card. We shot from April through August with no guarantee of funds. There was a lot of interest, but nothing yet in bank and for some reason it didn't distract us from our mission. Our responsibility and our commitment to make this film overshadowed any of our economic deficits. We just kept believing that something good would happen...and then one day, it did.
