70K: The first ten thousand that we make over our goal will go immediately into costumes, sets, and special effects. We'll be able to upgrade the quality of the garments, add some extra set dressing, and we can afford more complicated makeup/ prosthetic effects!
80K: If we can get here, then we will be able to afford some seriously cool extra equipment and add some more intense and complicated camera work that is simply unachievable with only basic gear.
90K: At 90K (150% of our goal), we will be able to afford both aforementioned upgrades AND an extra week of shooting, which means we can take our time getting things to look just right.
100K: If we can reach 100K on kickstarter, we will be able to afford all of the prior goals IN ADDITION to paying our crew better, having time for reshoots, and more funds to allocate to post production: including editing, coloring, music, and sound design!
Risks and challenges
The challenges that we face on this project are quite interesting. Without spoiling too much plot -- much of this film involves our lead character being "unstuck in time" and there is a huge portion of the story that is told nonlinearly, flitting between multiple points in time and space - some real and some imagined. Thus, continuity and clarity become major concerns. We're confident that we can pull this off but we need a budget that allows us to take our time and do things right - the first time - as reshoots and pick-ups may not be possible on such an indie scale.
We will then face some challenges in getting our film seen and sold, as the market for good independent film is very competitive. But we have some connections that are going to help with that - so we just need to focus on making a great film!
**A final note: the filmmakers are passionate advocates of suicide prevention and mental illness visibility. As our film deals with issues like depression, we strive to portray those issues with respect and sensitivity.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
