- With tender loving care.
- With gifted equipment.
- With arts grants (thank you NYSCA, the Pioneer Fund and the Papper Foundation).
- With the hoopers as diarists, they in part filmed their own stories, and had started to video-journaled before we caught up with them. We lent them some better equipment and shared technical knowledge to incorporate their footage to the film.
- With everyone we know helping out, from top-notch editors to our neighbors.
- Over a really long time, in between paying gigs, while hooping.
The process of making this film honors the dedication and passion that runs throughout the hooping community.
