Crowd funding launch

Hi everyone. Well I’m sure some of you have predicted this post. Film making is an expensive business, especially when you’ve been privately funding something this big over a seven year period. So it’s time to ask for help.

Expanding our film to fit on a world stage means visiting a number of sites and individuals in the United States and that will take more money than we can personally afford. So the plan is to raise $25,000 to cover the American shoot in a Pozible campaign and then apply for post production money with the government funding bodies when our first rough cut is ready.

Here’s my quick explanation from the campaign site

If your unfamiliar with crowd funding; this is how it works.

Pozible is an Australian owned and operated company who’ve raised more than $62 million AUD for 15,000 individual arts projects.

Pozible provides the platform for project creators to present their ideas to a connected audience, worldwide. If people love what you’re creating, they can support it by pledging money. In return, project creators offer rewards matched to the level of funding commitment.

You can pledge your donation by credit card or PayPal. The account details of your pledge are held securely by Pozible until the campaign finishes. If the total of pledges reaches the minimum tipping point (in our case, $25,000 ) then the funds are drawn upon.

All the details about how the money will be spent are on the campaign site ( link below ) plus details of the further stretch goals were hoping for. Why not pop over and have look… and while you’re there you could always press one of those shiny red buttons :O)
