Help us teach actors how to act on camera with funding for our short film "A Game of Cards"!
Thank you for joining us and our kick-starter campaign! This year, we would like to provide an opportunity for our students by enhancing the quality of one of the short films we shoot in ART, "Game of Cards". The film takes place on another planet, and so we need green screening, digital after effects, costumes, and film equipment that will help us not only for this film, but with all of our future projects. We are hoping to raise the presence of the Conservatory as one of the regions best short film creators, and continue to improve the way we mold our actors into bright young professionals who will have a positive impact on the world through the creation of excellent art. Please consider donating to help us in this endeavor!
In the end, we would love to raise about $10,000, but even a quarter of that would put us well on our way. So if we do reach our goal, please consider giving anyway!
Consider that in the past 2 years, our films were featured as "Best Of" in two straight 48 hour film festivals, winning Best Acting in the 2010 festival. The Conservatory's film 'Denny' was the hit of the festival with many people wowed by the amazing special effects. Our film 'BA Meeting' achieved 14,000 hits and the front page of Funnyordie.com where it listed an 80% funny rating! The writers of our short films won the 'play in a day' festival in Bethesda this winter, and we also have created countless scenes and films that have helped our actors get work all over DC, and LA, NY and all over the US!
Please consider donating to this worthy cause! Your support is invaluable for these actors in training, and to our mission to do everything we can to support their careers while they're here, and after they are gone!
