About

£911

We are a three person, non-commercial production team called 'Cropredy Blog' and we have been making content focussed on music Festivals (in particular, the Cropredy Festival) for ten years. 

Our tenth anniversary coincides with the fortieth anniversary of the festival, which seemed to us like a perfect opportunity to do something special.

Last year, we decided we would spend our tenth year making a documentary film highlighting the festival's forty year history, from its humble beginnings to the festival it has become today. 

After many talks, we are almost ready to make the project happen. What we need to make the project reach its full potential, is updated gear. 

Currently we shoot with DSLR with 18mm-50mm kit lens, and record sound either with Zoom H1 or borrowed microphones. To improve our standards, we need to upgrade our recording equipment, we're currently looking at a wireless microphone system and a new DSLR Lens.  The amount of video and audio we need to record for this project will also mean that we will need additional SD cards, additional batteries for all of our gear and external hard-drives in order to store all the files. 

This is everything we need in order to go into production, there will be a second campaign for when we need to make additional purchases for post-production. 

Risks and challenges

The bulk of our recording will take place at this year's Cropredy festival, with some additional footage shot at another time (not yet scheduled). The dates of the Festival are fixed (8th, 9th and 10th August), and the project is confirmed with the Festival's press team. If the money is not raised in time, the film wil not meet the standards we are hoping for.
