About this project
I am raising money to fund my graduate thesis film; "Delivery". This thesis film will serve me in completion of my Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of New Orleans. So what is this modern day "Citizen Kane" thesis short you have stumbled upon? "Delivery" is the story of a shameless flirt who finds himself dealing with the unpleasant reality of his constant over-compensation. Think of it as be careful what you wish for with fuzzy handcuffs.
I need to raise this money first and foremost to be able to feed my crew. Film crews tend to have quite a few few people and I have an ambitious crew-size of nearly thirty people. These are people I care about and I want them to be able to eat. Other than food, I have a full-size grip truck that will need gas. I have generators to fuel. Our camera department will need hard drives to back up the massive amount of data we will generate. I also would like to increase the value of my film by being able to put money into the art department. We need props! Did I mention the fuzzy cuffs? We need locations dressed. We sometimes even need the actors dressed.
I am in preproduction on this film now, after having developed the script for two years. I have begun fine-tuning my crew, cast, and locations. I'm producing this film with the help of the Killer Sheep Film Collective. This film will cost us two thousand dollars to produce, at a minimum. We have our current goal set at twenty two hundred dollars, to take in account the fees that will be charged when this project comes to fruition. So where do you come in? What will this help us buy? Your money will help to buy us the materials we need to dress our sets. Your money will help us buy the expendables needed for the camera department. While we need at least that amount of money, every extra cent helps us develop more on this film. Every penny we go over two thousand goes into our art department, adding to the value of how the film looks. Many things on this film are donated; help us be able to buy quality options, not just hand me down. Help us meet and exceed our goals!
Besides helping me complete my own graduate degree, you would also be helping nearly thirty other student film-makers gain experience working on a real set. Everyone here is hungry for on set experience. Remember how hungry we are? We need your help to help make this a wonderful experience as well as a successful film!
Thank you for taking a look, hope to see you at the movies!
