per month
I am a storyteller working internationally on a variety of subjects ranging from healthcare in rural China, to ancient Japanese cities, to cosplay across the world, to my most recent and biggest project, "Those Who Remain," which explores the memories of Moldovan Soviet era deportees who were sent to the eastern Soviet states as exiles under the Stalinist regime.

I have decided to set up this Patreon page because I want to start interacting more directly with my audience and involve you all in the conversations I am having everyday across the world.

Independent storytelling - photography, videography, editing... eating and finding places to live - is tough! But I am fully committed to doing this and working to make some of the best documentary, narrative and occasionally fine art work that I can! By supporting this Patreon account you are supporting independent, honest and in-depth storytelling, which will help us understand our world better and come together. 

I can't wait to take this amazing journey with you.

Goals
$22 of $800 per month
My team and I have been discussing this goal for some time now. We are currently finishing up Stage 2 of "Those Who Remain," which includes finishing preliminary shooting in Moldova.

If you didn't catch what "Those Who Remain" was about, it is a long-term, multimedia documentary project that explores the memories of Moldovan Soviet era deportees who were sent to the eastern Soviet states as exiles under the Stalinist regime. You can see some of the photos here - http://www.claryestes.com/those-who-remain
And you can still support the work on our Indiegogo page, so if you want an 11x17 Print, postcard from Moldova, or even a postcard set, head on over and support us! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/those-who-remain-cei-care-au-ramas-history#/

Once we reach our goal we will start sending out video interviews with our subjects, as well as preliminary animation sneak peaks!

This is a simple milestone that will cover a few basic cost, in particular, travel around Moldova, translation costs and animation costs. With this goal we will finish ALL WORK that needs to be done in Moldova and will move onto bigger parts of the project, including shooting in Siberia and Kazakhstan!
