Why should I support you now? You've already reached your goal!
Since Kickstarter is all or nothing, we set our initial goal on the low end. As with everything film, the more money we raise, the better it will look and the better it will sound. We already have the most important thing which is the story. But exceeding our goal before the deadline allows us to hire a better studio and most importantly, more time to work on the details.
What is it about?
After a decade of living in New York City, 30-year-old Antonio returns to his native Costa Rica for a short visit. Forced to stay much longer than expected, he is confronted with everything he has desperately struggled to put in the past: a broken family, an ailing father, a violent country and long lost friends. Unable to run away as usual, Antonio must come to terms with his past in order to take hold of the present and build a better future.
Who's the director?
Hernán Jiménez is an actor and a filmmaker. A graduate from the National Theatre School of Canada, he has directed five shorts which have all received national awards in Costa Rica, as well as a hit T.V comedy series. His first feature film, "A ojos cerrados", was theatrically released last summer and was a huge success. He now lives and studies in San Francisco.
What do we need?
We are trying to raise at least $40,000 to finish our post-production. We have made this movie for very little money, but we now need cash in order to color correct it and do a proper sound mix. This is a very expensive part of the process, and an essential step in the professional workflow of a film.
Because this is exactly how we want to make our movies! We have now made two films solely based on the support of friends, family and professionals who wholeheartedly believe in us. No big studios, no fancy film funds, no political grants, no greedy investors. Just friends of our project and us. And we want you and Kickstarter to be a part of this! Our chance is finally here to finance and support the movies we would like to see on the big screen.
Is my pledge amount publicly displayed?
Nope. We get to see that, but no one else does.
If I donate, when do I get my incentive?
Incentives will only happen if our goal is met, so the first step is to help us spread the word! If we do meet our goal, we will start to manufacture and ship all physical merchandise directly to you immediately after our deadline. The screenings, parties and DVD's can only happen after the film is completed so this will take a bit of time. Bear with us! (We will of course keep you posted)
What if I don't want the incentive? I just want to support.
Why, thank you! And yes, that is possible. There's a button you select when you donate if you don't want your reward.
Can we exceed our goal?
Most definitely! Since this is all or nothing, we have set our goal on the low end. As with everything film, the more money the better it looks and the better it sounds. We already have the most important thing which is the story. But exceeding our goal before the deadline will allow us a better studio and most importantly, more time to work the details.
What happens if the money isn't raised in time?
We get nothing at all and our fully edited film sits on our desk begging to be watched :( We must not let this happen!
I am not in the US, can I still support you?
YES! All you need is a credit card.
How will I get my incentives if I'm not in the US?
We will mail them to you. If you are in Costa Rica, we will set up an office in San José where you can pick them up.
