    BUCHAREST: Dragoş Lumpan's The Last Transhumance/Ultima transhumanţă, a 90-minute documentary shot along a 45,000 km route in Albania, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Wales and Romania has launched a second crowdfunding campaign in order to wrap postproduction.

    The campaign launched on Indiegogo aims to raise at least 8,000 EUR from the 15,000 EUR needed for the postproduction. The money will enable the finish of the postproduction (editing, music, audio, graphics, translations&subtitles, postproduction for video&sound). 

    The film will be ready by the end of 2016 and it will be followed by the promotional phase, festival participation and distribution. The total budget is over 100,000 EUR. Up to now the project was supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute, the National Cultural Fund Administration, GAV, Urban Spaces, Vodafone, Delaco, Free Miorita, Ferma Catean, HR Club, Creștem Idei, ABC DATA, Atelierul de grafică, Peasant Museum Bucharest, Macri Studio, Loud Studio & Videosama and by own funds.

    The Last Transhumance started as a photography project in Romania in 2007 and extended to several countries in 2010 eventually becoming a film project. Shooting took place during the course of 28 trips between 2007-2008 and 2010-2012, and resulted in 100 hours footage. Some 100,000 photos are also used for time-lapse images.
