The Monument is a student film project that includes a fantastic cast of both young and old filmmakers, photographers, musicians, and performers. The project began as a self-produced class at the University of Delaware that grew to include a large number of Wilmington University students as well as various performers from Philadelphia.
We've come very far on what limited means we have, but now the project needs a second wind to bring it to fruition. We'd like to ask the Kickstarter community to help us fund the rest of the project with the ultimate goal of increasing the film's quality to competitive standards.
Portions of the film have been shot. The goal of my class has been proposed and passed. The class was about constructing a crew and organizing the crew to shoot some terrific footage. In both of those goals, The Monument has succeeded. We've toppled a thousand challenges with very little. We want to take it further. The project needs funding to supply us with the necessary tools to finish, polish, and promote the film competitively.
The money will be used to finish the shooting. This includes all of the props and makeup we'll require for scenes that need to be added, reworked, etc.
As stated in the promotional video, this money is also supporting a wide array of incredible artists that have provided their respective talents to broaden the universal message that this film hopes to convey; that creation is a necessity to the definition and perseverance of humanity.
Thank you very much for your time, Doug Cannon
