Who are you people, and what are you doing?

We are students enrolled in Shoreline Community College’s Digital Filmmaking program. We will be producing two high-quality short films over the course of our Spring quarter, to be shot over Memorial Day weekend. 24 students will be seeing this through from beginning to end, all the way from scriptwriting to editing and final post-production.

What are these films about?

Glad you asked.

"212" - Tired of their stagnating relationship, a couple goes to desperate measures to escape their monotonous lives.

"The 180" - When an apathetic college student is inexplicably transported into a real-life music video, he must confront the complexities of love and his own concept of cool.

What do you need?

Though we’ve raised a large percentage of our budget — through donations, grants, school contributions, and even out of our own pockets — we need your help to raise enough money to shoot these two short films with professional equipment. Even though we’ve produced a ton of work, very few of us have worked with the caliber of equipment we’ll be seeing once we enter the job market. In short, we’re chefs cooking on hot plates; it gets the job done, but we’d like a chance to work in a real kitchen.

If I donate, where will my money go?

Where won’t your money go? As much as we’d all like to divorce art from money, the sad truth is that a few film students and cheap cameras will only go so far. In addition to allowing us to rent the equipment we need for our four-day shoot, your donation will enable us to secure filming permits for locations, hire professional actors, and buy and design props and costumes that don’t look like student film props and costumes. Best of all, you’ll be helping us out with film festival entry fees, ensuring that these two wonderful films you’re backing don’t end up stagnating on some random hard drive for untold years.

What makes you different than all of the other films on Kickstarter?

We love you. We joke, but we do. Due to recent Washington State budget cuts, community college art programs are being cut left-and-right. With your help, we can not only produce two fine pieces of art; we can also show anybody watching that art is worth saving. Did we mention that we love you? We do.

Risks and challenges

Filmmaking is not cheap. Unless we have plenty of credit cards to spare. The risks would include acquiring professional local actors, costumes, makeup, catering costs and of course the camera itself. We wish to rent this amazing equipment for our two short films.

Making two short films will not be easy with such a small budget and having availability to this gear would benefit us and our community greatly with these two great scripts.

Having two great scripts, a stellar cast, and talented crew is only a part of the equation. To make the caliber of film that we can submit to festivals (which we plan to do), we will need professional equipment.

As community college students, this professional equipment is not easily afforded by us or our school. However, we are confident in this project and in our supporters.
