Two and a half months ago, we ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and not only met, but exceeded our fundraising goal.
The goal for that campaign was to generate funds to shoot the opening scenes of our film. A private investor matched what we raised on Kickstarter, and with the help of a professional crew who believed in the project sufficiently to defer their salaries for those days of work until full funding was secured, we shot the opening of the movie.
Post production is well underway and the first 20 pages will be complete within 2-3 weeks.
We are currently trying to raise $10,000 as first money in towards the modest $250,000 budget.
We have a new website and kickstarter campaign up, with a look behind the scenes.
Feel free to take a look.
Here are a few frame grabs. Click the image for the 4K TIFF.
Any and all feedback is appreciated. I'll do my best to answer any questions anyone might have.
