About this project

about the production:

This project is the undergraduate thesis film of writer/director Praveen J. Collins from New York University. Filming was completed on location in NYC's Lower East Side thanks to the outstanding effort of the cast and crew.

Currently, the film is in its final stages of post-production, just a hair away from 'totally done'. It's being prepped for entry into Cannes Film Festival's Cinefondation and this is where we need your help.

our goal:

We are here to raise money to pay for the rights to the music used in the film. Since the festival is in France, the international prices for the music licenses are a bit expensive. This is our first and only fundraiser for the film; helping us reach our goal allows us to enter the festival and gives our cast and crew of  aspiring filmmakers a chance to be properly recognized for their painstaking work.

You get some fun stuff in return if you donate, as you can see on the right. All the gifts are meticulously curated and/or crafted by the director himself. 

thank you:

Get the word out and share this with your friends if you dig what we're about. Your donations are greatly appreciated, no matter the amount. From the bottom of our hearts, we sincerely thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

This film has already been shot and edited so there aren't many challenges left for it to face.

But it sure wasn't easy getting here.

The production was hellish. Pre-production snags and last minute scheduling conflicts forced our team to quickly assemble a crew only days before filming commenced. We were so understaffed that every person had to take on multiple crew positions during the entire shoot. We worked long and brutal hours squeezing a seventeen-page script into three-and-a-half days of filming, all around the chaos that is known as New York City. It was a draining, miserable, bone-breaking, soul-crushing three-and-a-half days. Yet in the end we succeeded.

Our ragtag team of undergraduate students overcame every obstacle, masterfully transforming the script into a beautiful short film that we are all proud of. And now we want to share the spoils of our labor with the rest of the world by entering our film into the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. But in order to do that we need your help.

Meeting our fundraising goal would validate the gallons of blood, sweat and tears we poured into making this film. It gives our work a chance for recognition and lets us know all the sacrifices we made were not in vain. Your support means the world to us. Any donation is greatly appreciated from the bottom of our hearts.

thank you.
