44 Hours Left - Awesome Casting Update!
Dear IS12 Team,
I am extremely heartened by the support INTIMATE SEMAPHORES has received so far -- just under $13,000 from 114 contributors.
We are now 44 hours away from our deadline with $9,000 remaining. I'd really appreciate if all of you could continue to spread the word on this project through e-mails, social media and just talking about it with friends/family. Over twenty percent of contributors are people I have never met, which really proves that social media works!
It's worth mentioning again that for a $1,000 contribution I will shoot/edit one day for any project you might have -- an event, party, wedding, commercial, etc. And for a $2,500 contribution I will shoot and edit a two day project for you. Projects will be shot on a Sony F3 package. Please let me know if you'd like to see samples of my work relevant to what you're looking for!
An exciting casting update to share: Musto Pellinkovicci, who plays Rally in IS12 short "Helberger in Paradise" has just been cast in a major role in the new Martin Scorsese film "The Wolf of Wall Street" starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Musto also recently wrapped a key role in the upcoming "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy. Congratulations Musto!
Your contribution will ensure that I'll get to do another day of shooting with talented actors such as Musto.
Thanks again for your continued support and I cannot wait to share the final product with you soon!
All the best,
