WE CAN ALWAYS USE YOUR HELP!
We recognize and value the importance of programs such as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities, under threat at the moment for potential funding cuts. work must continue to keep these programs in place. However, as an independent filmmaker, funding for projects such as independent films is rarely available to us via these needed platforms. Which is why I come to you to seek your help towards funding a program like this.
All art forms are critical to the learning process of our youth and this is one way to continue to support a unique opportunity that will not only provide a meaningful experience to local youth but will help them begin their on-screen acting careers or filmmaking journey as new visual creatives. Your support is welcomed and greatly needed.
What will your funds be used for?
Funds are needed to secure shoot locations, permit and insurance costs.
Along with our production team, we feel it important to have a "Studio Teacher," on site. This is the person that helps keep an eye on the kids while on set, making sure they are protected at all times. We want to make sure that our child actors and behind the scene activities have all the legal and safety requirements in place so they can have the most enjoyable experience while on set.
Post-production is where the magic happens and the film is assembled into an extraordinary final production. Staying on top of software applications and tools for editing, sound and color correction is important.
Film festival submissions fees and screening costs. It is not only exciting for kids to participate in the filmmaking process, but to be able to experience the big screen experience by seeing themselves and their names in bold credit before large audiences will have a lasting effect.
And last but not least, Food, we have to make sure our youth receive good, but healthy meals and snacks while on set.
