“Night Surf” Kickstarter Has Launched!

16 Aug

Possibly the biggest news yet: our Kickstarter has launched! Before I waste any more time talking about it, head over there and have a gander. We have awesome rewards, a snazzy video starring Ericka and I, and even a brand new photo!

The way Kickstarter works is by meeting a funding goal by a specified deadline. If we don’t reach our goal in the allotted time, we don’t get anything! Fortunately, the folks at Kickstarter make it awfully easy to donate — you just have to have an Amazon account (and, let’s face it, who doesn’t?). Also fortunately, we don’t take failure lightly.

The Kickstarter can be found at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/daveh/night-surf. Click that, or copy and paste it into your browser to start the adventure!

Now, back to the topic at hand: fundraising…

Fundraising is an integral part of filmmaking. From big budget blockbusters to no budget Indies, everyone needs money. The difficult part of film fundraising is that there is little-to-no return,which is why Kickstarter is great.

By going through Kickstarter, we are promising you a return on your investment. Whether it’s a signed script, a Blu-Ray, or a haiku written by yours truly, everyone leaves with something.

Also, you’re investing in art — everyone involved in the Night Surf film is a creator. Creating the inner thoughts of a character, creating dialogue, or creating lighting design, your contribution will help to further the innate desire to create something from nothing, to give life where there wasn’t before.

I hope this post encourages you to at least spread the word of our project. Send this along to friends, colleagues, anyone who may be interested in art or film; we promise not to disappoint.

Over the next month, we’ll be posting much more… so, keep an eye out.

For now, stay classy.

    Hey guys, i’m just curious what camera will you be using for this film? I saw your kickstarter pitch, and I loved the quality of the beach shot.

      As of right now, we’ll most likely be using something from the Canon DSLR family, but we’re still doing some test shooting with other cameras. Possibly mixed footage.

      The beach shots in the video were from a 60D with the awesome 24-70 f/2.8 lens.
