First and foremost thank you so much for taking the time to check out our project and listen to our pitch. We're excited to share this project with you and are eager to get things started.What Is This Film About?
Why do we want to make this film? What do we plan to do with it?
While we touched on this in the video, there is a serious lack of fantasy content out there. This includes films, television, and especially free online content. For fans right now, there really isn't a place to go for reliable scripted narrative fantasy. Game of Thrones is one of the few shows out there that targets our audience, but unfortunately, it's not on for 10 months out of the year. Aside from that, there really isn't anything else on TV, and at the moment, there isn't a haven online for fans of the genre to get their fix.
As hardcore fantasy fans, we're tired and fed up with the lack of easily accessible content. As such, we're setting out to remedy that problem ourselves. This short will serve as the first installment in a series of free fantasy short films posted online. Our goal is to use this short and our subsequent films as marketable pieces to secure larger financing. This will allow us to deliver a constant stream of high quality, free, and easily accessible fantasy content to fans of the genre in the near future.
Beyond that, fantasy is just something that we both truly love. We both grew up on Legend of Zelda, fantasy literature, and listen to epic fantasy scores in our cars when we drive. New Zealand and Ireland are in our minds, the best places on earth and we both dream about owning our own castles complete with a dungeon and forests/ caves in our backyards. It's something we're genuinely passionate about and we can't imagine working on anything else. We're hoping to share this passion and enthusiasm with you, the loyal fan!
What is Kickstarter and how does it work?
What happens with kickstarter is you can choose to pledge money in staggered amounts. Depending on the amount that you pledged, you will receive various rewards to compensate you for your generous donations. At the end of our campaign, if the total amount pledged exceeds our target, then the credit cards of all those who pledged donations will be charged and we will receive the funds. However, if the pledged amount falls short of the targeted amount, we will receive zero zip nada zilch and no awards are given out to donors.
All of the money raised will go towards the film. What happens if we go over the target amount? All of that money will go directly towards making the film better. That includes better props/wardrobe, more rental gear (lights, camera, grip equipment), better craft services to feed our crew, etc.
What stage is the film currently in?
The script is in its final stages of completion. We're about to start the process of drafting shot lists and storyboards. We've secured a few stunningly beautiful locations in Lake Tahoe and are really excited to shoot there. We feel that the environment truly captures our vision. We're still rounding out the final members of the crew but are All we need at this point is funding to get the ball rolling. So we hope that we have you hooked! We sincerely appreciate any amount you can donate and look forward to seeing you on the other side!
