Hey movie watchers and skiers, Zuzana here.
The purpose of this Patreon campaign is simple:  fund feature length film Sliding Upward.
Moreover, it is a place to showcase Sliding Upward podcast on Soundcloud and give you all access to the behind the scenes from the podcast Sliding Upward on Youtube.

The film “Sliding upward” will bring you a story about a high energy sport that is accessible to most everyone. Come explore the expected and unexpected benefits of this special style of skiing. Join this fun adventure into the magical world of X-country skiing and racing, with a little bit of science blended in.
Ease your winter blues or get your explorer heart beating fast planning your next adventure. Come 
do some Nordic skiing with a little side trips to life and everything. 

“SnowDance” with us!

The purpose of this campaign is to entertain our audience while we raise funds for the film. 
You can donate directly to the director at <g>paypal</g>.me/pools/c/88aYDiLh84
(or consider temporarily subscribing and canceling if you feel intimidated by the login, or just contact Zuzana directly if you would like to be a nonpaying patron but interested in future developments of the film. )

Crashed and bruised, but can't help it, the film is still on. 
Let's start by sharing.
Don't miss it! 
Make a difference and become integral part of a healthy lifestyle community. 

Check the template below! It will help you reconnect with your friends.
Feel free to use it and edit it as you need.
Send it to your friends near and far or to people you would like to meet.

This is going to be AWESOME!
 I promise you, you will meet some fantastic people along the way

The Producer/Director Zuzana Gedeon is dedicated to seeing this project blossom, even in the invigorating temperatures of winter. We hope to show our future investors and distributors we have a great following of people who are also interested in seeing this project make it all the way to the big screen.
Please don't feel shy to donate a single dollar. You won't even notice it in your budget, but it will mean a world to us.

Please share, share, share!!!!!
You would be surprised about how many people are enthused about cross-country skiing. Take a moment and share this with 10 friends right now. You will get some good karma sliding your way and it is a great way to reconnect with your friends or strengthen a connection with those you would like to connect on some meaningful level. Ask them what their plans are this winter and maybe you can create something fun, you will be looking forward to this year. To help you, here is a small template you can use. Share with anyone and everyone, your friends family, random acquaintances, a celebrity you may know…
Feel free to edit this template to your heart's content, but make sure to replace and personalize the bold italicized text.

Dear (name)
I just saw this campaign for a film "SlidingUpward" and it made me think of you. I know winter can be quite dreary, and even though I am not yet ready to give in, it made me think about fun times we had at (this is time for you to shine and tell them about that fabulous experience you shared). What do you think, should we plan to go ski somewhere together this winter?
The campaign sounds fun. They only ask for a dollar.
I think I will give them (your generous donation and support will be appreciated and potentially matched by your friends? So do not be shy to tell them even if it is one dollar) because it hit a chord with me. Might be fun to see the finished film one day and know I was personally involved.
I have to say I chuckled to see their plea for sharing the campaign. It's kind of at the bottom of their story, don't miss it. It's funny, and you will see how it inspired me to write to you.

Just think of all the people you haven't talked to in a while. Wouldn’t it be great to reconnect? Go ahead, ask them to meet somewhere, go hang out, make your community stronger, bigger and more connected. It is what this is all about.

Our hope is to get people to live the best lives they can. Even science claims that exercise and social connections increase the quality and length of your life.
Go ahead, live better, and spread the word.
Thank you

Obligatory Frequently Asked Questions:

Why Sliding Upward?
Sliding upward is the feeling I get when I go skate-skiing, but it took a little practice and training to get there. I love that moment when you push off one foot and as you are going upward realize that for a split second you are simply gliding upward. Plus it also seems to be a great parallel to our life. If we let gravity take a hold, we will end up on the bottom, but it only takes a small little step up, or a light push from a good buddy to go in the opposite direction.
Why do not show top elite athletes as main protagonists?
Personally, when I watch a film showing a super athlete, I am quite impressed and living vicariously through their story. But, I also think: I am too busy, not that genetically equipped, or (insert your own excuse here) to get to that level. So why even bother? U.S. Department of Health & Human Services statistics show some pretty sad trends when it comes to exercise. Hence I want to present something else. However, do not worry. We plan to play a tribute to those who commit their lives to a high-level exercise. After all, I am curious about what drives them and how they manage to be that amazing.
What is your timeline?
In an ideal world, we will film the rest of the footage by March 2019 and go into a post immediately after, so we can have the final film out there sometime during next winter. The ideal world depends on a success of this campaign. Please help us get the ball rolling, donate and share.
What are you going to do with any extra funds?
Wouldn't that be splendid! We would have resources to fix and expand the website to include outreach and promotion of Nordic skiing and active lifestyle and provide you with a great place to ease your winter blues or get your explorer heart beating fast planning your next adventure. And if we have anything left  we will pour it back to the community and expand the project scope.

When you join us, you will be investing in building a community, creating a team of passionate, talented professionals - as well as an emerging female filmmaker.

Thank you!
