If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to make a film. This is the story of SNOWFLAKE.
7 years ago, I wrote the original feature film to tell the story of a struggling artist in the music industry that paralleled my own trials and tribulations as an aspiring filmmaker. My vision could not be realized without building a team of trusted talents who were trying to chase their own dreams in the film industry. Drawing from my resources and connections through Emerson College, I began to make short films under my production company, Goldilocks Productions. Each film was one step closer to completing an impressive reel, and therefore one step closer to making Snowflake a reality.
After knocking on many doors on both coasts for funding and coming up empty, I (with encouragement from the Goldilocks Team aka Team Snowflake) decided to not only take matters into my own hands, but also reach out to the online and artistic communities that have supported me from the beginning: This is where YOU come in. Your involvement in the film goes beyond pledging your hard earned cash. We want all of you to be a part of this film, because we are all struggling for our dreams.
Repeat after me: “I AM SNOWFLAKE!”
It’s true! We are all different, beautiful, talented and have voices that should be heard. With your pledge, your support, your efforts to spread the word of Snowflake, we can make a wonderful film that tells a timely tale: How do we rise above? We are looking to make this film for as little money as possible to prove to the film industry (and ourselves) that you do not need a blockbuster budget to make a high quality movie in all areas. The $5,000 represents the minimum amount needed to technically make the film. Everything else is free labor from cast and crew, donations from friends and family (and you), and your support to market the film through Twitter, Facebook, Myspace and the blog on our website www.snowflake-movie.com. Donations does not mean “money”; we rely on people’s resources to find locations to shoot, places for cast and crew to stay, props, wardrobe, food for cast and crew during shoots, equipment, and basically any “thing” that will help the team execute the film. Many of our rewards also give you opportunities to participate and experience the film through music, and on or behind the scenes involvement.
Team Snowflake is ready to complete this project by any means necessary, and we invite you to become an honorary member of the team! Please look at our rewards section for your pledges and experience the journey with us.
Thank you in advanced for any and all support! Feel free to contact me through Kickstarter to ask any questions.
