ABOUT THE FILM

St. Pete Beat: The Documentary is a mid length (~35 minutes) visual portrait about the art and music subculture that is embedded and hidden within St. Petersburg, Fl. It is about local musician's who have stayed in St. Pete to CREATE their dream, instead of CHASE it. The artists that sculpt our small city's culture, and the people that enhance our city to be more than tourists, cover bands and endless dive bar patrons... or at least try to. We are ranked top 25 art destinations in the city, but there is more than Dali pieces here. Featuring the city's movers, shakers, wankers, go-getter, weirdos, entrepreneurs, commissioners, big wigs,

WHY ARE WE MAKING THIS FILM?

To show that there is more going on in St. Pete than meets the eye. That there is culture that is trying to be created, although pocketed and spread.

Also we will be sending this to Gasparilla Film Festival and a bunch of other film fests!

OUR WORK

Here are some videos we've done under the St. Pete Beat Moniker.


WHAT THE FUNDS ARE FOR

LOGISTICS. Video production is very, very expensive, not as expensive as film of course, but still expensive. We're only asking a portion of our budget. Here is what our funds are for.

- Audio Gear Rental/Audio Engineer Day Rate, Transportation, Food, Location Fees, Prints, Mics, Film Festival Fees, Second Camera Operator rate, Editor Rate, Shuttling Costs, Edit Bay rental and whatever cost arises.

WHAT WE HAVE FILMED SO FAR

We have tons and tons of BROLL. We have a bunch of footage from live shows too.

WHAT WE NEED TO FILM

INTERVIEWS. Specifically Interviews with good quality audio. Since this documentary is predominantly about musicians, it would be stupid to not have good audio. Good audio is important. Good audio is actually very, very important.

WHO ARE WE?

Well, we aren't a bunch of amateurs with a video camera pretending to be filmmakers and artists to pick up ch1cks that's for sure...

we're professionals with a video camera that are filmmakers, maybe not artists, but all in all it's to pick up ch1cks...
