Since we use digital filmmaking techniques, our costs for filming is very low. There are still expenses, though, that we need to deal with in order to create meaningful movies, such as camera rental (when applicable) and gas money to get to the locations. So, we're hitting you all up for money. Here's the cool thing, though: When you donate to a specific project, you get special perks. Here are the levels:
$0-$50: "Special Thanks To" in the credits. You will also receive a free DVD of the final project.
$50.01-$500: You will be listed in the credits as an "Assistant" to one of the major crew areas (Photography, Audio, Costuming... literally, what your donation will be used for). You will also receive a free DVD of the final project, plus a extras disk (when available- this is on a per-project basis).
$500.01-$1000: You will be listed as an "Assistant" to one of the lead actors (depending on the size of your donation). You will also receive the DVD of the final project, the extras disk (once again, when available) and a signed photograph of the lead actor you are listed as "Assistant" to.
$1000.01 and above: You will be listed as an "Assistant Producer" and your name will be listed alongside my name (that is, the Director). You will also receive the DVD of the final project, extras disk, and signed photographs of the lead actors and myself.
Cool, huh? Currently, we are not in need of any extra funding for Clarity, our project starring Blake Shearer and myself, Carly Smith, but we are currently working on a full-length, feature presentation, to be shot in Decatur, Fort Wayne, and Angola, Indiana. However, I cannot speak much about this, as nothing is nailed down yet, but it is all in the works, I assure you!
For now, I will sign off.
Be cool, everybody!
