17. Indiegogo Campaign Launched for Superman-Themed Documentary

Brett Culp and his filmmaking team have launched an indiegogo campaign hoping to create a not-for-profit documentary called Look to the Sky. They aim to raise $90,000.

This movie will shine the spotlight on individuals who exhibit “Superman”-like qualities. Regardless of whether or not the campaign is successful, the group intends to move forward with shooting this movie. We’ve embedded a video about the project above.

Here’s more from the campaign page: “By becoming real-life superheroes when facing life-threatening situations, homelessness, physical challenges, and loss, the young people in LOOK TO THE SKY are showing us that light can shine brightly, even in the darkest places. There is hope for the future. And the ‘Superman spirit’ we grew up with is still living in the hearts of young people around the world who believe.”
