'And The World Waited' is a short film produced through the NYU Intermediate Narrative program. Highly ambitious in its style, the film aims to encapsulate the look and feel of the United States in the 1960s. This is no small task, and because of this the production will need to raise $2,500.

We plan to put a large amount of the budget to making sure that the film really shines in its art decoration. A variety of 60s appliances, clothing, and furniture along with meticulous attention to detail in shooting, will help to transform a beautiful but modern Riverdale home into a relic of one of the most exciting times in American history. Doing so will also require a particularly eccentric, albeit very exciting, piece of set decoration: a fully functional 1960 Cadillac Fleetwood.

Additionally, director Henry Zaballos has made the choice to shoot on color 16mm film, a stylistic choice that will not only look GREAT but functions to place the audience in the mindset of the past. However, as film is a dying medium, it does not come cheap. In addition to film stock, proceeds will also go towards transporting cast and crew from the train to the shooting location, located on the border of the Bronx and Yonkers. In addition to transportation, we will also need to feed all of the talented people working 12 hour days!

If you're a friend or family member, a fellow film student, or a patron of the arts, we ask that you dip however deep into your pockets you can and contribute to this exciting piece. Your contributions, no matter how small or large, make a world of difference at this level of filmmaking and are deeply appreciated.
