About Film to Fund
Project 2016-01-09 20:07:05 +1300
I am a 36 year old writer and actor with a huge passion for photography, as a writer and photographer I have been creating some exciting short films and plays for years, I have always wanted to film my pieces and really bring the stories to life, but have never had enough money to fund the equipment, I purchased a camera worthy of filming my work, but there is a lot more to making movies than just a camera.
My films are from all different genres, they will make people laugh, cry and think, giving the audience a great night out and help charities at the same time, I have written over 15 short films so far and I'm still writing today.
My project is both exciting and challenging, firstly it's going to help aspiring actors the chance to get involved in my short films and get some real exposure and experience, also anyone who wants to get involved in the behind the scenes side of things, including camera work, sound operations and writing, they will all be joining me on a voluntary basis and will receive credits, and a head shot.
The other part of my project is to help local and national New Zealand charities, the way I am planning to do this is through ticket sales from local screenings of the films, I will be giving 90% of the ticket sales to various charities each project, the remaining 10% will fund future films so we can keep the cycle going.
The money I am asking for will go towards the payment of all the essential equipment to make my films worthy of the big screen, I need to buy dollies (Moving camera mount...not the childs toy) Lenses, filters, stabilisers, memory cards, sound equipment and lighting.
Once I have my equipment I can get started straight away, I am extremely excited about the future and hope you will be a part of making it happen
The People Behind Film to Fund
I"m a keen photographer and now cinematographer, I have lead a very interesting life and I've met some incredible people on my travels, I've never been wealthy in any respect, I have worked hard to fund my trips and pay for my equipment, but I am really struggling to pay for the right equipment for my project, you see I'm trying to bring my film scripts to life in order to make money for local and national charities.
I use volunteer actors as I would never have the money to pay them, besides it's all fantastic experience for them, they use the footage for their CV's and Showreels which usually cost a fortune, so we all benefit, the money we generate comes from cheap ticket sales, a small percentage goes towards funding further projects, the rest goes to a different charity each project.
I have always done my part for charity, but that was through wage contributions and general donations, this project is very close to my heart as my passion for film and writing work hand in hand to help others.
