  • Shoot On?

    I might one day attempt to fundraise again. But, only if I can find some successful funding in advance.

    I have a project that I've wanted to shoot for years. But, it needs a real budget. It's a musical, and I have demos with my awful voice. I have a singer that I can coax into singing on a couple for this project. So, I'd have a few songs I can create videos for, and I would just need one actress to play the lead in this trailer. I already have two friends who will play the other two parts.

    The hook for trying to get funding is it's a story that features ALL the beauty of New Jersey. I know Jersey has a bad reputation, and it took years for me to change my driver's license over from NY. But, it is a state that has everything. That's going to be my selling point, the pride of New Jersey.

    For this trailer - Do you think it would matter if I shot with my old Canon XL-1? It's 29 fps. But, outdoors you can get the depth of field. Most of the trailer will be outdoors.

    Realistically if you have an idea that is unique (like yourself) and that appeals to an audience any camera will do. I hated the director of the first Hunger Games film, but got caught up into the story. The deep depth of field is a bonus, since shooting with a DSLR could limit yourself in that aspect. Unless you can find someone who owns a Panasonic GH4. 4K+deep depth of field+high dynamic range=awesome.

      If I use the XL-1 I can take a month by myself to get the shots I want. If I find someone with a camera, I have to pay them. I'm unemployed, and this is going to be a LONG process. I've never begged money for anything before. I've thought about it... But, it's a whole new game when cash is involved.
