Up for a promotion he desperately needs, Gabriel goes to extreme lengths in order to get it, compromising himself and his family.
My name is ANIKA POITIER and I am a filmmaker living in Los Angeles. I am asking for your help to finish my short film Black Irish made with writer and actor LEANDRO DiMONRIVA. It was made as part of AFI's Directing Workshop for Women and although we have picture locked (very exciting indeed) we are still a ways from completing the project and we are in need of funds (that's where you miracles come in). We are hoping for the last 8,650 dollars needed for a final product. These include sound design and mastering for the big screen (YAY!), Color correction (to make the actors look good), Foly and sound effects (for that extra pizazz), Original score ( Because that's all we can afford) and promotional materials such as DVD's (for you guys and Festivals), Posters and maybe a few things not occurring to us in this exact moment. We set our goal for 3,500 to get the ball rolling as we would like to complete the film by March.
BLACK IRISH is the story of Gabriel Martin a single father struggling to raise his only daughter in a small South Boston neighborhood. As Gabriel's situation becomes increasingly desperate, he has to take extreme measures to try and secure a job promotion he desperately needs.
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
We believe that film is a an excellent medium for expressing important ideas as well as for entertainment. LEANDRO DiMONRIVA, the writer and lead actor of the film, wrote a story that is close to his heart and based on his own experiences and struggles. We tried to make a film that shows the great strength and courage it takes to overcome personal obstacles, and we would like to share it with as many people as possible.
We need your help! As we all know film is incredibly expensive to pull off. Even with the digital revolution in full swing, there are so many costly factors involved in producing even a 13 minute film. Please join our team, reap the rewards and help us give our project it's final push to the finish line!
REWARDS! REWARDS! REWARDS!
Everyone likes being rewarded right? So if you gaze to the right you can see what we're offering. We are grateful for any and all contributions, everyone who helps out will be thanked profusely and some of you will be able to get to see the film before anyone else with DVD's available and invites to the premier.
