Support & Need

Our Support (So Far…) and Our Need
We’ve encountered support at every level. We’ve secured a letter of intent to distribute the film, the optioning agreement from the original author/publisher, and a letter of support/endorsement from the Canadian Cancer Society-NL.

The film project also continues to pick up press coverage which you can read/watch/hear on our In The Media page.

We received an arts grand from the City of St. John’s Arts Grant program and last fall we were chosen to pitch the project to CBC who have shown initial interest and support.

We plan to raise $17,000 to ensure that everyone working with us is paid properly.

The funds from this campaign, our grants, the corporate support we are pursuing, and the fundraising concert will cover:
– pre-production planning
– a 2 day production shoot
– the editing process
– the post-production phase
– the marketing/film festival submission phase

This short film production will employ no less than 15 film crew and acting professionals.  Along with the other sources, we need the support of our community to bring it to fruition. If everyone comes together- between grants, corporate community supporters, and YOU – we can make this happen as a team.

We had a crowdfunding campaign setup with RocketHub, but withdrew the campaign part way through due to the excessive fees being charged to our supporters (30%!). We’re still accepting donations and acknowledging the supporters from the RocketHub campaign and future supporters here on our main website. Below are the various support levels with associated perks.  To contribute to the film, simply get in touch! We have Square now so we can process contributions paid by Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, or Discovery.  You can also setup an e-mail money transfer or PayPal payment and direct it to jjmoxy@gmail.com.
