We need your help!
Short films allow filmmakers the freedom to take creative risks - enabling us to find the stories we want to tell and a voice in which to tell them.
They are considered rights of passage in the industry and yet, they are notoriously difficult to fund.
This leaves many early filmmakers in a bind; unable to get projects financed without existing work but unable to develop as artists without the resources to make that work in the first place.
If you’re inclined to support artistic endeavour, storytelling, filmmaking or just an old pal, relative, friend or colleague with what they're trying to make happen - you could look generously on this project by contributing.
Couples Retreat - The Crew
Where do your contributions go?
The simple answer is everywhere. When making a film, there's no shortage of places to use funds, and the truth is – in line with the five completed episodes – what we're requesting will ultimately make for a modest production. Experience is pivotal, and has taught us to be economical whilst still getting the most bang for our buck! The main sources of expenditure will go towards renting equipment and locations, paying for talent in front and behind camera, and catering.
Here is a breakdown of how the budget will be allocated:
All donors to the project will receive a special thanks in our end credits, no matter the amount donated.
We are incredibly grateful for any and all pledges that are made in support of our short film, so please pay what you can. Every penny will count!
NB. Please do let us know if you would prefer that your name is not listed in the end credits and we will, of course, respect this.
We really appreciate your support, if all of the above intrigues you and you would like to see this film made please consider backing us!
