Finding Traction is being produced an Emmy Award-winning production team composed of filmmakers from Bozeman-based Fours Five Productions, ColorBURN Productions and MontanaPBS. “Nikki is one of the most inspiring women we know. Her endless courage, tenacity and drive to go after her goals is fascinating and awe-inspiring. After learning about Nikki’s plans to break a speed record on the Long Trail, we knew this was a film we had to make,” said Producer/Director Jaime Jacobsen.
A crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo is currently underway to raise $30,000 for the post-production of the documentary. The film’s Indiegogo campaign will run until December 15, 2012. For information on how to contribute, visit: http://www.indiegogo.com/FindingTractionFilm.
Finding Traction will be broadcast on PBS and submitted to the film festivals across the country in Summer 2013. Community screenings will take place throughout the states of Vermont and Montana, and in other key locations in New York, California, Colorado and Utah.
