Congratulations to "Off Track" director João Paulo ("J.P.") Jacobsen.  The project received the most votes to win September's Project of the Month.  The prize is a creative consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

Here's a look at the film's pitch:

As the Mexican-American War rages, rumors of gold lead cartographer Patrick O’Sullivan to desert the army in search of riches in the unmapped regions of California. He and his companions find themselves lost and near death when they stumble upon an unlikely guide – Pul, a Shaman of the Cahuilla tribe. As Patrick uses Pul to search for gold he discovers that the shaman has his own motives assisting him map the land. This discovery redirects Patrick’s egotistic journey into a historical opportunity to focus his life on a mission greater than himself.
