Thank You to Our Program Underwriters

This film could not have been made without the generosity and support of our incredible underwriters.

My name is Jo Throckmorton, and I am asking you to support the production of the World War I documentary film, "Over There: Hoosier Heroes of the Great War." We currently have one significant underwriting organization that has paid ONLY for a substantial portion of the U.S.-based on-location videotaping. The amount we seek will allow us to finish the remainder of the U.S.-based portion of production and give us the opportunity to capture footage on the battlefield locations in Eastern France. Additionally, these donations will provide finishing funds for the editing and delivery of the final film.


Without your support, the delivery of this film will be delayed significantly until proper finishing funds can be secured. We are asking for your help. Any amount is significant. Any person or organization who might want to be one of only four potential major underwriters for this film can contact me directly to discuss an agreement.


The organization is not a non-profit organization, but a third-party fiscal agent handles all accounting, and we can provide transparent financial reporting upon request.  Thank You!
