MANCHESTER – On Feb. 17, 2014 two New Hampshire residents launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to produce a new movie focusing on the Free State Project‘s 101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire. The IndieGoGo campaign page states:
This full length, documentary film about the FSP’s list of 101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire will be read by famous supporters of the FSP. Between the readers will be short success stories and features on early movers – people who couldn’t wait and have already moved to NH prior to the goal of 20,000 signers being achieved.
Each reader will showcase one of the five sections of the 101 Reasons: Government, Politics, Economy, Quality of Life, and Geography.
A number of perks were offered to prospective donors, including public credit on the film’s website; a signed CD by libertarian musician Tatiana Moroz, silver rounds, a CopBlock starter kit, listing in the film credits, admission to PorcFest, admission to the New Hampshire Liberty Forum in 2015, and credit as a Co- or Executive producer. One month later, the campaign had exceeded its goal of raising $5000, bringing in a total of $5,545. According to the production team, the donations will be used to purchase and rent equipment; pay for gas, meals and other travel expenses as well as any unexpected but necessary expenses that show up during film production.
Executive Producer Vince Perfetto cites his combined love of the FSP and documentary films as his motivation for producing a film that will be made available for free viewing online. Inspired by YouTube videos of New Hampshire liberty activists engaging in peaceful civil disobedience, citizen journalism, and open-carrying a handgun at an Obama rally, he was motivated to relocate from southwest Florida to New Hampshire in 2010.
Freelance video producer Beau Davis, assisted by his wife Samantha, will be filming and producing the film. Davis’ credits include Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree as well as music videos for Ace Hood and Swazy Baby.
A production schedule calendar can be found on the film’s official website at 101ReasonsFilm.com.
