Logistically speaking, the Crowd Funder is the next step for my Web Series.
I’ve been gathering up Budget Data so I know how much to shoot for, and it looks like we’ll be shooting for $25,000.
Costumes – $6,157
Props – $3,233
Food For Cast & Crew – $2,510
Makeup/Makeup Artist – $1,500
Location Fees – $500
TOTAL = $13,900*
*Plus I Need A Few More Swords
Plus the Contributor Awards, which I’m Budgeting around $11,000.
So basically 60% of the funds will go towards Production, and 40% of the funds will go towards Rewards.
My next step would be to make a ‘Pitch’ Video for the Crowd Funder
Normally this wouldn’t be a big deal, I’d just film myself, plus add some photos and/or behind the scenes Video Footage
But because I haven’t gone out since the end of October because of the Anxiety, I’m feeling less enthusiastic than I was back in August/September
I realize if I get the money, and cant get myself out of the house to Direct the Project, I can find another Director
In fact, I have someone in mind from our Crew
But if I do that, I will to a degree, at least with this Project, be letting go of my Greatest Passion, Directing
Don’t get me wrong, I love Producing, and Writing
But Directing has been my life long ambition
It’s what I was working on before I ended up in the hospital in 2002
And back in September, I Filmed our First two Scenes for the Web Series, and they came out pretty good
Though I/we may not be able to use them due to some Lighting and Sound Issues, I was overall happy with the actual footage
Anyway, that’s my Update for now
Thanks for Reading/Listening
