Donate to "90 Percent"!!

"Ten Percent of running an Ultramarathon is the actual running, the other 90 Percent is mental."

Over the last decade, there have been many films produced and released that try and capture the essence of Ultra running. Most, if not all, of these films capture the grueling physical toll on running great distances itself, or put on the display the actual race itself. So few of these films truly capture the essence of the mental aspect of running one-hundred miles. Movies can show the course all they want and show you the beauty that one sees while running these grueling events.... it's a given. Movies have shown us the physical training and athletisism needed to endure the distance. But so few films have focused on the true  90 Percent running an ultra is... mental.

I've made the decision to go forward with producing my newest film titled, 90 Percent. This short film will introduce audiences to 2 or 3 ultra-marathon runners living in Colorado's Front Range; whom are all preparing for the 2012 Big Horn 100 Mile Endurance Run, the races 20th Anniversary Running. The film will then follow these runners as they take on the Big Horn 100 and will capture their most intimate and candid thoughts throughout the race, as they run with handheld cameras.

Ultimately this film, in it's entirety, will be available for FREE on YouTube after production is complete. It's important that this aspect of ultra-running be told and shared with as many curious folks as possible. I also aspire to submit it into the 2012 Boulder Adventure Film Festival. However, producing a film doesn't come without costs. Currently, almost everything needed in order to produce this film has been funded and purchased; with your support the remaining tools needed can be funded, purchased, and the film can get underway.

PLEASE CONSIDER YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT OF 90 PERCENT. Currently Stone Face Productions is $300 short of the funding needed to produce this film. To donate, please contact Sherpa John at Sherpajohn@gmail.com for more information.
