At a small college with no film department, 6 artists set out to create a short film about a man returning home in search of a story.
The ultimate goal of our project is to submit our short film to several film festivals. We have an 8 month plan to complete the film which is in pre-production now. The piece will be completed sometime late in April.
The project is backed by the head of the Visual Media department as a part of a collaborative independent study. This first semester of our year has been spent in pre-production working on the script, screening actors, planning, principal photography, and storyboarding. The year's second semester will be dedicated to the production of the film. That includes casting, shooting, ADR, editing, and color grading. At the end of the semester we plan on submitting our film to festivals. The funds we raise will go principally towards equipment, gas money, entry fees for festivals, and a stipend for our actors.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
The primary challenge in our project is that our college DOES NOT HAVE A FILM DEPARTMENT. There is very little in place in terms of resources and infrastructure for this sort of project. Nothing like this has ever been done here before, so we are essentially blazing our own trail. However, this team has been specially put together with people who are highly motivated, skilled, and innovative. More than anything else, everyone in the group is an artist and will use what tools and resources we can collect to create something beautiful.
