IA Production's short no-budget film "Looking Through" is in need of additional funding for festival submission fees.
IA Productions recently completed the short film "Looking Through," a Hitchcock-inspired short thriller. The complete production was successfully and efficiently finished within a week with no budget. The entire crew and cast consisted of fellow students who, like us, have the passion and focus for filmmaking and acting. We are now at the stage where we wish to expand the audience for our film by participating in a number of film festivals. In order to register for the film festivals, we are currently searching for backers who can provide the funds necessary to cover the cost of the festival submission fees. We intend to raise a minimum of $300 to cover the entrance fees for our primary target group of film festivals. If we are successful in obtaining funding beyond the minimum $300, we will apply the additional funds towards the entrance fees for our second target group of festivals. It is our goal to introduce IA Productions to the film community and to begin the process of becoming recognized as up and coming filmmakers.
Dim the lights, curl up with a bowl of popcorn, huddle under a blanket, and click start to experience our IA Productions' 16 minute film, Looking Through.
