      Hi Bernard,
      thank you for your interest in the project. It took Jaco’s film over 15 years to make and about the same for Wayne Shorter’s, these projects need a lot of money to make and complete. When we did our crowdfunding campaign we raised over 80k, however that was just a fraction of the cost and it was to create awareness and get the project started.
      In today’s world it would be much easier to raise money to do a documentary film on Taylor Swift than Weather Report. That’s just the hard fact. But that doesn’t mean we won’t complete it, you just have to please be patient, it will happen.
      Thanks for your comment, we appreciate your understanding and enthusiasm for sure one of the greatest band ever.
      Tony Zawinul/ Director
