Yes, this is a non-profit venture. We would love to get a return on the investment, but there is no investment plan, since there is a very small market for short films. Is there an opportunity to see a return on the investment? Yes, but only in rare circumstances. Any return are negated by the overwhelming costs already taken upon the filmmaker and his volunteers. Every penny earned will go back into promotion of the film, be it at festivals, or used for traveling expenses to promote the film at various venues.
