“This is an exciting moment for us, because audiences will be able to understand the impact the steelpan has made around the world!” exclaimed Morton. Over the course of three years, the duo travelled to seven countries – Canada, England, Japan, Nigeria, Switzerland, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States – interviewing over 150 people, conducting research and hosting discussions about the topic. As independent filmmakers, Morton and Harper utilised crowdfunding sites, such as Seed&Spark and Indiegogo, as well as hosted over 20 fundraisers to secure funds to produce the film.
