Now ideally we will raise more than 200 dollars, but Kickstarter works with the all or nothing philosophy so we have to meet our goal of $200 in order to get any of the donations.
The money is going to go towards the costs associated with production. Craft services, we may have to rent a limo and that will cost money, we may have to buy some equipment which also costs a pretty penny. Some crew members may require a small salary.
This money will just go towards whatever costs arise during the production.
This film is going to be featured at the Place Called Sacramento's 2014 Film Festival. All the films are due by September 2nd and will premier at the festival on October 5th at 1:00 PM at the Crest Theater
This is the films Facebook page where I will be posting updates as the production progresses.
So most of the perks are self explanatory.
The DVDs with special features will basically include whatever I can scrape together. A commentary, and hopefully some behind the scenes featurette and audition tapes. It will be awesome.
For the art prints perk, you can check out my website to choose the piece you would like. Or if you have no preference I will send you one at random.
For the crochet perks, my website has a catalogue of past projects. I can do accessories such as scarves, hats or headbands or I can do small toys. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide on a headband for this perk you can ask for two different ones since those are smaller endeavours than the scarves and the toys.
For the original painting perk you can message me with what you would like. It could be a scene from a film or painting based on a photograph. If you would like a painting of a particular actor or maybe a piece using lots of the color blue then let me know and I will do my best.
If we hit 1,000...
So ideally we might raise close to 1,000 dollars anyway since thats the budget I'm hoping for.
If we do then I will be giving everybody a thank you credit on IMDB. I would offer to put everybody's names in the credits of the film but sadly this film needs to be under ten minutes in order to be played at the festival. If a lot of people donate then the credits could be too long!
If we hit 2,000
Everybody, no matter what perk they chose will get a PDF of the script and a digital download of the film.
I can't imagine raising more than that but if we do I will think of something to give you all!
Risks and challenges
The film is largely shot inside of a moving car so we plan to shoot using the GoPro cameras and some special rigs that will attach the camera to the windows. Its going to be difficult to fit our whole crew in one car but we will do our best.
Another concern is lighting inside the car. Sometimes the bright sun creates a light imbalance. I plan to get some small battery powered lights that can be affixed to the ceiling and hopefully that will even out the lighting.
The rest of the production is just a matter of scheduling and filming. There will be difficulties involved with filming in a cemetery but the local Jewish cemetery has given us permission to film so hopefully everything goes according to plan!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
