Support Happen Films

I release all of my films for free because I want their important stories to reach as many people as possible. It turns out that releasing things for free isn’t the best way to make money, who knew?

My income is entirely from making films. Most of which comes from donations and a small amount from YouTube views. Donations allow me to continue to make these films, so if you like what I do please consider sending a few bucks my way. You can get cool things in return such as film downloads, behind-the-scenes updates, and a fuzzy feeling in your heart for knowing that you’ve helped me out!



  1. Respect! Robert and Robyn Guyton chose Riverton as their home 30 years ago and have been active ever since in transforming the village into one that is rich in resources that serve the health and well-being of the locals.

  2. Those are very kind comments and we appreciate your support. The Happen Films people did beautiful work with us and we’re delighted to see how far their film has traveled and what encouraging responses it has stirred. It has already attracted over 40 000 views on You Tube and that figure is climbing steadily!
