Who we are...

More or less, Ornana is a little fever dream of a production team. We've had films playing at SXSW for the last five consecutive years, with six straight projects Staff Pick’d by the folks over at Vimeo. If you look at the range of those projects below, we hope you see all the energy and thought we put into telling new stories, each matched with a unique style created just for that film. This is why we've come back to Kickstarter, we want to keep playing and inventing every step along the way, and we could really use your support on that journey.

What’s Frolic ‘n Mae? 

 

 

 

 

 

Matching funds? Oh yep!

In May, the script was chosen as the recipient of a short film fund by ScreenCraft and BondIt. They awarded the film $10,000 toward production and also offered to MATCH crowdfunding up to $5,000. Yes, that means whatever you donate will be doubled! So a little help from you goes a long way toward the project.

How’s the money going to be used?

One of the most important parts of this process will be getting that range of genuine moments of frustration, explosive creativity, and pure wonder/joy out of our young actors. These performances are going to take some experimentation and repetition to achieve. Raising this additional budget for Frolic ’n Mae will allow for the time to build with our cast. We also want to be able to go really big with post-production (i.e. lots of imaginative animation and sound design). Again, every dollar helps buy the time for our talented team to focus on creating a wild and free visual and auditory world. The more we have, the more we will be able to do for the story. We need your help to make sure that we have the tools and resources to make something truly stunning. 

We believe all that hard work will result in a film that gives the entire audience a jolt to their own creative energy. 

ALL YOUR FAVORITE SHOWS!

 CONFUSION THROUGH SAND (kickstarted in 2012!)

EUPHONIA

(notes on) BIOLOGY

 

AND REMEMBER!

Any amount you pledge will be matched by the good folks over at ScreenCraft and BondIt. So whatever amount you give will count as double!

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Production, especially with young actors, can be a nerve-wracking experience, with lots of tiny moments that can go wrong. We hope raising this money with you will help build a safety net for our performers, and give them the freedom to have a lot of fun with this challenging opportunity. We are striving to create a supportive, exciting environment on set for these actors to showcase just how full of life and energy and complicated little parts they really are.
