Risks and challenges

It's always challenging to fund a short film. Backers worry the project won't reach fruition or unexpected hurdles will arise that prevent completion. We have contingency plans in place for many of the challenges filmmakers face when producing a short film. By carefully researching the budget and implementing cost containment measures, we can shoot on a near shoe-string budget if necessary. However, greater funding success would allow us to boost payments to the crew and have some extra capital in place for better special effects, marketing, publicity and the eventual festival circuit.

Backers should know that the contributions need to fully fund the film. Therefore, travel expenses and accommodations will not be included in the reward tiers. However, shipping and handling for the material rewards will be included within the United States. Barring any unforeseen obstacles, we will do everything in our power to meet the expected deadlines. We have set reasonable goals and expect to meet every one.
