A Budget Breakdown
All of the funds raised through our crowdfunding site will be put towards the production costs of our film. Above, is a pie chart demonstrating which departments the money will go to. With the hopes that we reach our crowdfunding target, all funds will be split evenly between the departments. However, if half of the target is reached or we don't reach the funds necessary, the money will be split accordingly to sectors we deem would prove the most worthy to our cause.
Our project is an ambitious one and with your help and the money raised we can create something extronidnary. We want to create world that defies our expectations and showcases what we as a team are capable of.
