About

 Hey everyone! My name is Samuel Guilmore and I am a screenwriter and director and am gearing up to film my first ever short film. I've been writing for years and have dreamed of producing my first ever short. 

I've always had an eye for directing and filmmaking, but money and resources were always the issues. With this funding, it can help ensure to make a project that would be great. 

The short is titled "Hell of a Night" and is a dark comedy that is revolved around four friends who throw a party looking to have a good time but receive so much more. This through the point of view of Devin, a introvert and sapiosexual who meets someone at the party who is in grad school studying psychology to get a degree in sex therapy. 

This project is very DIY. The funds for this film will go towards camera equipment, materials to build lighting rigs, soundboard, microphones, and funds to pay the crew I will be working with. Anything that we raise over the $4000 will go to helping us acquire licenses to use copyrighted music in our film. A close friend and I will be doing the song selections for this product. 

My overall goal is to submit this short to film festivals. I've always wanted to go to a festival with my own work and now that I'm graduating soon, I'll have the ability to go and market this project. Any donation is greatly appreciated and even if you can't donate anything, sharing this project will be more than helpful. 

Risks and challenges

This is the first project that I've done outside of group assignments and vlogs. This is nothing to worry about since I've been planning this film out for a long time. I'm committed to making this project great and won't settle for anything less. No money that is donated will be wasted.
