Status of The Nine Sisters Project
The team has completed principal photography, completing 125 hours of interviews with veterans from all nine sisters, as well as interviews with other people related to the building, operation, and history of the ships. Four segments have been edited in very rough form. They are not available for sale as yet because of legal issues, but copies are available with the heads of the ship reunion groups.
The next steps to complete the documentary:
1.) Secure $50,000 in funding for the archival materials in the National Archives.
2.) Secure the involvement of a nationally known documentary producer.
3.) Secure funding for transcripts ($5000) editing ($50,000) and final color correction and music ($25,000)
4.) Secure a broadcast network.
