This week's journal

Sadly, our summer project to film a documentary in China has been postponed because the NPO concerned could not get local permissions in time.

We are very disappointed, but certainly hope to reactivate the project at some time in the future.

This means we now have two weeks in June where we'll be available to produce and film on a full time basis.

As usual, it will be on a volunteer (pro-bono) basis, expenses only if outside Hong Kong.

In other news, we're still waiting for our society status to be awarded by the authorities here in Hong Kong. This does rather impede our ability to raise sponsorship funds to maintain our operation. In fact, it makes it pretty much impossible.

We are in need of upgrades to our gear; camera, more powerful CPU on our Macs to handle motion graphics, software... we are looking at a fairly sizeable chunk of change!

Consequently we decided to explore an option that other small un-registered grassroots NPOs have gone for, that is, a partnership with an already established organisation.

We'd be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in partnering and taking over responsibility for fundraising and finding sponsors for Ridealist.
