About

Blood in the Gallera, a full-feature documentary film, takes you on a journey where cockfighting is not only a sport, but a billion-peso industry. An entertainment, both legal and illegal. An international sports phenomenon banned in many parts of the world. 

The film will bridge the gap between the United States of America, home of the best breeders in the world, and the Philippines, home of the Olympics of Cockfighting, the World Slasher Cup. It will take you on a journey from its roots to the rise of towering galleras.

It will unravel the mystery of the makings of a champion breed. 

It will, ultimately, tell the whole story.

Breaking down the different breeds and showing each of its qualities and impact to winning, tracing its roots, understanding the ideals of breeding and properly telling the whole story are those that will push this documentary to its finest. That, however, will require much time, effort and resources. Add that to the challenge of going to America and acquiring the right footages that will make this story complete.

We’re trying to raise US$ 25,000 to complete our production budget of US$117,000. We already have US$ 92,000 we need your help in making this happen. 

Hereunder is the breakdown of our production budget. 

Researchers $9,000.00. Buying of other archival media and film footages $12,000.00. Production Equipment $12,000.00. Professional Cinematographers $9,000.00. Editing $12,000.00. Music and Sound $6,000.00. Animation and Graphics $12,000.00. Advertising and Design $3,000.00. Logistical and Travel Costs (United States from the Philippines) $24,000.00. Production Management/Producers $9,000.00. Kickstarter's share and Incentives $9,000.00. Total $117,000.00

Risks and challenges

Blood in the Gallera will unmask the cockfighting world like never before. Our team commits to present this documentary in an entirety that will reveal what it has been set out to. And we can...we will do this to the best of our expertise. The challenge here, however, is resources.

We have the entire world of cockfighting to look into; a story to develop - one with too many chapters for opening; questions to address - those that even a seasoned breeder/enthusiast needs answers to; unseen and untold angles to explore. Leaving one thing out or skipping a step may prove to be detrimental to the quality and significance of the film.

So while we gather bits and pieces, while we move around this new world, we need funding and assets to aid us. We need your help.
