Project Platinum is a short action film filled with all the video game characters you know and love.
Hello and thank you for taking interest in Project Platinum. If you haven't watched the video yet please do so.
Like we said in the video we are excited to be working on this project and excited to be working together on this short film. as promised in the video here is a short synopsis as to what we are going to be creating.
Heroes from the most popular video games have been mysteriously transported to Earth with no way back home, they must turn to a legendary gamer for help. A daunting task becomes more difficult when the heroes learn that in order to return home, they must defeat a powerful being bent on making this world his own.
Now that you have read the synopsis I'm sure you're pretty excited right? Awesome! What I'm going to do is give you all a brief breakdown of the budget that we have have put together for this project. This goal is $1000 almost 100% of that $1000 is going into costuming. About 5% is going toward a boom pole which will be needed for this project. Like we said in the video we are lacking on equipment. we have a Canon 5D mark II which will be used for most of the filming, we also have access to quite a few Canon T2i/T3i cameras. We already have a pretty decent shotgun microphone which we will be using (hopefully plugged into a zoom recorder instead of the 5D) so as far as cameras go we are okay. What we desperately need is the accessories to go with the cameras. here is a list of the equipment needed from most important to least important.
Canon Lens: $1200
Glide Cam: $600
Fluid Head Tripod: $300
Shoulder Mount: $500
Zoom Recorder: $300
External Monitor: $200
Thats a total of $3100. You add that with the $1000 for costuming and thats $4100! So you can see why we didn't include this cost in the goal. We currently have all of the tools needed to make a decent film, but like we said in the video this extra equipment will make it so so so much better! Better yet once this production is over we can continue to use this equipment on other projects which will cut down the budget quite a bit. There are options such as renting out lenses from photography stores. I checked one out the other day and it was $35 a day. If we don't raise enough money to buy our own lens we hope to at least rent one for a week or two during production. So if were not over funded there are other options to making this production better (like renting equipment) we hope to not rent equipment just so we don't have to worry about the liability factor as well as the schedule factor. Any extra after equipment and costume's will go to things like gas to get around and food to feed our actors who will be acting for free.So now that you know where the money is going please help us out and donate!
We are currently writing the script, a good portion of it is done. We hope to start production late August right after this Kickstarter project ends. We hope to be done filming by the middle of September, and done editing by late September or early October.
Like we said in the video this project is sorta a sequel to a previous project we did in school. We have way more time to get this done than we did while we were in school so the production quality will be ten times better. The story will also be much better.
Can't wait to get started, and once again thank you for taking interest in this project. If you have any questions feel free to email them to Bluefluidstudios@gmail.com
