Imagine working for years on a project, investing your own money, sacrificing precious time with your family, all with no guarantee that this project will get the recognition it deserves. That’s pretty much the story of my good friends and former co-workers, Dana Nachman and Don Hardy. They left local TV news in order to follow their dreams of making documentaries. It’s a decision that meant giving up a steady job and an even steadier paycheck, for the unforgiving world of documentary filmmaking.
Dana and Don worked incredibly hard to make their second documentary, “Love, Hate, Love.”
They traveled all around the world to tell the stories of three families whose lives were torn apart by terrorism. These families turned their grief into action, and changed countless lives for the better. And now the world will have the chance to be inspired by these families because “Love Hate Love” will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month! This is huge news! Filmmakers kill for this chance, and Dana and Don are two of the few who are getting this amazing opportunity this year. To say it’s well deserved is an understatement. Dana and Don poured their blood, sweat, and tears into this documentary in hopes of getting it to the big screen, and now it is becoming a reality.
So now Dana and Don are getting their well deserved recognition, but this recognition doesn’t pay the bills, so they just launched their first crowd funding attempt to help cover the travel costs.
