Merry Christmas from Beautiful Earth
Hello all, as we’re into the Christmas season now we wanted to touch base with you all and let you know how things are going here at Beautiful Earth as we near the end of 2012.
It has truly been a magical year for us both. We have worked extremely hard with many days of long hours to get to the point where we have completed almost all of our filming for Stanley Park: An Urban Wilderness. There have been so many breakthroughs this past year where we have managed to interview people that we pursued for many months and finally got the time we needed with them which gave us so much material, more than we could ever need. They really were some of life’s golden moments.
We also found ourselves on the other side of the camera when we were chosen to feature on a local television show and talk about our film and ourselves; it was a nerve-wracking experience to say the least! It turned out very well though and we are so pleased and grateful that we had the opportunity to share our thoughts with so many people.
We also had an interview at CBC Radio which we loved doing, but so far hasn’t been aired. We’re still hoping it will be so let’s all keep our fingers crossed for that one.

We launched a funding campaign on Indiegogo in the fall and although it wasn’t successful in the way that we hoped we are extremely touched that we had the contributions that we did. Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude go out to you all that were generous enough to donate.
We will be doing so much more in the New Year to secure sponsorship and funding in order to finish this project, which will involve huge leaps of faith on our parts to dive into the unknown this way. But as they say, you can’t learn to swim by standing on the shore! This whole journey feels like that, the courage to take that leap, to see what happens if you try.
We find ourselves at a point now where we still have a great deal of hard work to do to complete what we have started but it’s very exciting too. We have a bright future ahead, with big plans for the company, which will see us expanding into other things; but those plans will be kept under wraps until they become viable.
Thanks as always for reading and we’ll leave you with the best of wishes for a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
