I’ve been in thinking mode for these past few days! Really, really thinking. One of the things that I want to do the most (as being part of the industry) is helping storytellers take their stories to the screen. I also get a thrill when I learn something secures enough financing to go into production, and know it will be shared with an audience. There are many diverse people with big dreams like mine, and they need the finances to do so. I’ve been making plans to start a foundation that awards grant money to finishing film projects, and an income supplement for struggling Hollywood assistants. Hopefully I will be able to get these off the ground in the next couple years.
Obviously, with a fast food worker’s pay, I don’t have a ton of money, but I’ve been wanting to take a small part in my dreams of aiding storytellers. Recently, I’ve decided on a movie campaign a month. There are tons of crowdfunding campaigns for films, that I can’t keep track of, but I would love to do so much more. My favorite site to find campaigns are Twitter and Seed & Spark. At this time, all I can afford is around $50 to $100 depending on the month. I do hope to up the amount, or do more films in a month at a later time.
So with August around the corner, I will be checking out crowdfunding sites and looking to contribute! Can’t wait to update you on the challenge soon!
