We have 48 hours to make a spontaneous film. Fund this project to make on-the-fly awesomeness and get in the credits.
We've entered this year's 48 Hour Film Project.
You may be a bit familiar with the concept. Filmmakers (usually amateur ones like us) receive an assignment to make a film in a specific genre, with a specific prop, a specific character and a specific line and are given 48 hours from that point to create a film. Because of the specific elements mentioned, there can't be much planning ahead until the 48-hour countdown clock begins.
We don't know what story we're doing, but we do know that whatever we wind up with, we're going to have to purchase or rent all sorts of props, costumes, locales and possibly people on the fly. The costs of the little things that go into these types of films add up very very quickly and has the probability of being even more expensive since there's no way to plan in advance.
Now, since this is an amateur project we totally have an excuse to make this thing look cheap. We're not taking that excuse. If the film winds up being about Genghis Khan on the moon we want the film to look like Genghis Khan on the moon. As mentioned before, we're amateur filmmakers, but would like to compete with the professionals in this project.
If you donate more than five bucks (Five bucks? That's nothing!) you'll get production credit in the film. This gives us added pressure to not let you down on something you've literally put your name on.
Please now and thanks in advance.
