Checking it twice

Posted June 01

I've now spent some 50-odd months working on 'Sisters For Sale' and 'The Human, Earth Project'. 

For much of that time, I've been working alone - but I don't like to refer to 'Sisters For Sale' as "my" documentary, or 'The Human, Earth Project' as "my" project, because they're not. 

Thousands of people from sixty-odd countries on six continents have contributed their time, energy and money to help me raise awareness of the global human trafficking crisis. 

'The Human, Earth Project' is a truly global, grassroots movement, a very exciting new kind of movement made possible only by the reach of the Internet. 

You need only to scan the incredible diversity of names in the credits to see how far our work has reached. 

Since last year's fundraising campaign, six months ago, I've mostly been working alone on the post-production of 'Sisters For Sale', our feature documentary. 

Over the next four months, a team of professionals from around the world will be coming together to help me finish the documentary, and move forward with 'The Human, Earth Project'. 

I'll be introducing them soon, along with some other exciting news. Today's post is a more practical one, for those of you who have contributed to our work over the past four years, or intend to in the coming months. 

Seeing 'Sisters For Sale'

If you've given over $25 to 'The Human, Earth Project', or assisted our work in other ways, you'll be able to watch 'Sisters For Sale' online when it is finished this September. 

For the rest of you, 'Sisters For Sale' will be available to pre-order only until Wednesday 14th June (that's only two more weeks!) and only through our website. For now, this is the only guaranteed way of seeing the documentary. 

When it is completed, 'Sisters For Sale' will be submitted to film festivals across Europe, North America and beyond. If the film is picked up by a distributor, I will have little control over where and when it will be made available. 

Getting your name in the documentary

If you've given over $50 to 'The Human, Earth Project', or assisted our work in other ways, not only will you receive access to 'Sisters For Sale', you'll also receive a personal thank-you in the film credits.

I've put together a list of your names below. 

The list has been compiled from our fundraising campaigns, from the years between, and from memory. The names have been cut and pasted, and run through automated filters, so there may be errors. 

If you've been involved with our work, please check that your name appears as it should, and let me know of any names that should be added in, taken out, or altered. 

Many of these names will be given particular credits in the documentary; for the moment, for the sake of simplicity, they all appear as one list. Musicians and film-makers have not yet been included on the list. 

The names are given in alphabetical order (which is complicated somewhat by names that include multiple surnames, or naming systems where surnames appear first). 

Only real names appear. Those of you who have contributed under other names have an opportunity to change them. The only organisation names included are those which have been directly involved with our work. 

All names are shown here in lowercase, and will appear in capitals in the documentary. 

If you'd like to get your name in the credits, this is your last chance - the final list will be compiled on Wednesday 14th June:
