This project is part of our entry in the My RØDE Reel 2017 competition, where we are tasked with making a short film that is 1-3 minutes long. It is the first film competition/festival that we have ever decided to enter, and so it means a lot to us that we feel we have made it the best it can possibly be, so that even if we do not win, we will still feel extremely proud of what we have created.
One of the biggest risks we are facing during this particular project is the time limit; we have under a month to write, cast, shoot and edit this short film, but this time frame also includes fundraising for equipment which is an essential part of making this project achieve its full potential. We have never attempted a project with such a high budget before, and although £200 may seem like nothing in comparison with the million pound blockbuster films, it is an awful lot for us considering we have only made £0 budget films in the past.
The money we are hoping to raise from your pledges will enable us to hire out a high quality filming camera for the few days in which we plan to shoot. Currently, we have been working with a low-grade DSLR camera, and although it is a fine piece of equipment for amateur filmmaking, we knew we would have to step up our game somehow if we stand a chance at standing out in this competition. Hopefully, with your help, we can make this a reality.
Once the film is completed, as part of the reward for your much needed help, we will post a link where you can view the finished product!
