Crowdfunding for short film Actus Reus

Published at Fri, 2014-02-28, 12:55

In November I was approached by fellow student who searched a Director of Photography for a short crime film project. As someone who always loved well made crime movies I asked him to send me the script and was in after reading it. And I’m happy I decided to be part of the project.

We started planing the next steps and begun the casting and location search. In mid January, after the end of the winter term we then made a few weeks of hard work to finish preparation and were ready to shoot on the 10th of February, our first shooting day. After 7 shooting days we had great material in the can and are now in post production.

And finally yesterday our crowdfunding campaign was changed to the funding phase by Startnext, a German crowdfunding service. (They have some strange processes to get projects up and running which took some time …)

We invested some money because even No Budget Projects aren’t free. There is always little things that add up which we try to refund with the campaign. I’d be happy if you support us by becoming a supporter on Startnext or if you spread the word about the campaign!

Stay tuned for more about our project. In the next weeks I plan to write a bit about our workflow on set and in post. And to tell you one thing: It’s a RED workflow ;-)
