They began their campaign on 6th March 2014, in a bid to raise £12,000 to fund their project. They state that The Mentor will begin filming in May this year, with the use of specialist equipment and filming locations that will be bought with the campaign's funds. They say on their website that people will not only be donating their money by backing their Kickstarter campaign, but with donations coming in Grazing Cow will be giving out prizes to their fans; including everything from postcards to film props and credits. Grazing Cow are currently on a short break from their Kickstarter page, starting on 20th March while they tweak their campaign and make amendments. They are due to relaunch in two days on the 27th March after a seven-day absence.
