Film in Preproduction in LA with New Casting Director and Search for Charities to Receive Funds. We are now moving ahead with the SUICIDE PARTY: PROJECT 0 in early March in LA. Our director has now brought in a top casting director and is now starting to cast supporting and extra actors, including for a big party scene with over 200 guests. The two lead actors and director have over 30 feature films between them and we now have $25,000 of our $35,000 from investors and are lining up distributors. We still have our crowdfunding campaign to get additional funding for marketing and promotion, but otherwise, we expect to get all the funding we need for production from investors. You can join the campaign for as little as $5 and there are lots of great perks, including IMDB credit. It’s a very timely film dealing with inequality, the media, celebrity, and other issues in the news, and we’re donating part of the proceeds to charities dealing with inequality and suicide. We are now selecting those charities. For more details, including a sizzle reel and short, the campaign site is at www.gofundme.com/suicide-party.
New Perk on Finding Funds for Your Film through Crowdfunding. I just added a new perk to the Suicide Party crowdfunding campaign—a PDF with the chapter on crowdfunding from my book FINDING FUNDS FOR YOUR FILM OR TV PROJECT, recently published by Hal Leonard, a company specializing in entertainment industry books. This book is on Amazon at: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=finding+funds+for+your+film, along with my other books on films: WRITING, PRODUCING, AND DIRECTING A LOW-BUDGET SHORT FILM and MARKETING FILMS TO MILLENNIALS AND BABY BOOMERS. http://tinyurl.com/ln9eq8f.
Next Events in the Bay Area and Connecting with Publishers, Agents, and Producers. I’m hoping to host the next Film Exchange later in February and start the Film and Business Connection events in March. Sorry for the delay, but things have been incredibly busy in getting SUICIDE PARTY off the ground, working with the editors for two shorts that will be showing at the Castro in March, and restarting my old business of connecting people with publishers, agents, and the film industry with new partners, since the people who bought the business from me decided to go out of business. So now if anyone has a book, script, or film and wants to connect with anyone in publishing or the film industry, my new company can help you do that.
