What We're Doing
We're making a micro-budget feature that is, so far, being completely financed by personal funds.
Principal photography is underway, and that means the expenses are piling up -- location fees, set dressing, talent, and crew.
What We're Looking For
Though the budget for the production of the film is much higher, we're setting the funding goal at only $8,000; which should cover most of the location fees as well as help with set dressing and props. It also helps us set aside funds for post-production.
The film is about a fashion photographer, Ryan, and a makeup artist, Olivia, who shoot "behind the scenes" of their own relationship as they document the creative process in assembling a fine art photo project.
Their photo project is centered around using lipstick as body art, through which they create images that are sometimes provocative, sometimes sexy, and always interesting.
We'll use numerous cameras (Canon and Nikon HD DSLRs, Flip HD, and even an iPhone) to shoot the film from the character's perspectives. The film will have an indie drama (i.e. "film festival") sensibility, but utilize some techniques found in horror films such as Paranormal Activity and Blair Witch Project to make the imperfect film work organic to the story.
What We're Offering
Because the story focuses on a photographer and a fine art photo project, we're able to offer high-quality photo prints in our rewards. The prints will be limited editions, available only to our Kickstarter backers. This is in addition to the awards we're offering that are along the lines of what you'd find with some of the other cool films being financed through Kickstarter -- credits, exclusive website access, etc.
Please note - if you are outside of the US, we will need you to cover shipping costs on any rewards involving a physical product (such as cards, discs, prints or artwork). This will be in addition to the amount pledged at any given award level. Thank you for understanding!
