Anybody want to fund my next short film project?

29 03 2011

I have some really good ideas for some blog posts but I always get to posting something at around 11pm when it doesn’t give me much time to really flesh out the idea, read it over at least once, and make it seem brilliant.  I should try and get my posts done earlier, eh?

In other news, does anyone reading this want to give me money to help me make my next short film?  I have two pet projects I hold fairly close to my heart that I want to take ample time to film and make sure it is utterly… well, brilliant.  They’re almost the same idea except told in different ways: the first is about a young man who meets a man claiming to be him from the future, who has come back in time to warn him about meeting a guy he will eventually fall in love with which would end badly.  This one would be easier to make even though it is a few pages less in length but only 3 locations.

The other script is more artistically and experimentally presented.  It’s about the same young man who is told, through images and scenes, that he will have to make a choice between love but ruin afterwards, or missing out on love but possibly never knowing it — a take on “it is better to have loved than to have never loved at all.”

I know I could try and make both of these without budgets but I actually have a couple actors in mind and am convinced that they would only do something like this if they got paid, not to mention everyone else helping out with the film.  I haven’t made a film with any sort of budget so it would be a good learning experience (not to mention, yay!  Money!).

Unfortunately, a lot of funding sources that I have looked at (Canada Council for the Arts, BC Film) require applicants to not be a full-time/undergrad student, of which I am, and I haven’t the slightest idea of how to find a producer who might be able to help (maybe craigslist…?  Kidding!).  If only I had richer friends… kidding!  Well, sort of.

So if anyone does indeed want to help out a lowly filmmaker realize a project or two that he has great belief in (which is rare for him) or know of a producer with some money lying around, send him an email and you will make one usually unlucky boy feel actually lucky: evil_ice_dragon@hotmail.com.
