For the past two years, the Class Dismissed team have been criss-crossing the country talking to homeschooling families, experts and advocates from all walks of life. We’ve captured some great stories and gathered a lot of valuable information about homeschooling and other ways of learning outside the classroom. And since January, we’ve been documenting a family who pulled their two girls out of one of the highest-rated public schools in the Los Angeles area to embark upon the journey of taking their education into their own hands. Their story has been unfolding beautifully and we can’t wait to share it with you.
With over two years of the filmmaking process behind us, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. With 75% of the filming complete, we are really pleased with how the film is turning out and can’t wait to begin post-production, then get this movie into film festivals and into the hands of families across America.
But to do so, we need your help. We’ve nearly exhausted our personal resources and still have work to do. That’s why we’ve launched a campaign on Kickstarter; to give us that last push to the finish line.
From the beginning, we always wanted Class Dismissed to be a people-powered film, meaning we wanted to get the homeschooling community involved in whatever way they could. The outpouring of support has been tremendous and we could not have accomplished what we have without you. From all corners of the country, you have reached out to us offering skills, personal time, advice, moral support, and financial contributions.
We’ve come a long way, thanks to the generosity of you and the larger homeschooling community, and with your continued support we’re confident we can wrap up this project!
So please visit our Kickstarter page and help us move closer to the finish line.
