Food for Cast and Crew – Student Short Film | We are raising money to help feed our cast and crew while filming our short film, Wired.
Hello, my name is Jonathan Dailey, the writer and director of the film. I’ve been making film since I was as young as 13. This is my passion and dream that I have never let loose of following. Contributing to this film will not only help fund a student project, but rather invest in tens of student’s futures.
My name is Drew Jackson and I am one of the producers for the film. My love for film making started my junior year in high school. I took a video production class and I immediately knew it was what I wanted to pursue as a career.
John Stinson here, our team has been working incredibly hard to get this project off of the ground. But all of that work is worth it when you are such a big fan of the script like I am.
My name is Alex Haarmann. Ever since coming here to Missouri State I have fallen in love with film and everything about it. I love the script we are working with and think it has the potential to be a great short film. But between now and when the final production comes out we have a lot of work to do.
My name is Luke Bowers. I am a huge lover of all things film related. I am so excited to be a producer for this project and we have a wonderful script to work with. Johnny has such a great vision for this film. Please help with any donations it will be such a great help.
This campaign is very important to us because it helps us reach our end goal of producing a short film. All of the cast and crew are doing this because of their passion for film making. No one is getting paid and keeping everyone fed is our top priority. A happy cast and crew makes a successful cast and crew.
Your funds would benefit the stomachs, hearts, and minds of everyone working on the production. Keep our stomachs full so we may have the energy to continue on when the sun comes close to setting. Our hearts become full with gratitude as we realize people are gracious enough to have faith in our work. Our minds will stay on track to produce one of the greatest student short films that Missouri State has ever seen.
What We Need & What You Get
Our overall goal is to raise $1600 dollars for fruit, vegetables, bread, deli meat, granola bars, and water. All will be purchased in bulk from Sam’s Club to feed our cast and crew over the span of two weeks. The cost of the food comes in at around $1400, we are asking for an extra $200 to cover any additional expenses that may come up.
The sole purpose of this campaign is to ultimately make sure that we take care of our cast and crew. They play a massive role in this project and we want to make sure they know how much we appreciate them.
Your contribution will go towards the fulfillment of college students goal to work in the film industry. This project will give many different students hands on experience in the film world, ultimately expanding our resumes and setting us up for future success in film production.
The main thing I want to point out is that we are college students. We are very broke! Our passion and ambition are at it’s peak, all we need to apply this are the funds. Having free meals is the cornerstone for making this project work.
Risks & Challenges
We do have outdoor scenes that could possibly be ruined by rain but we are very organized and we could push those scenes back and work on indoor scenes that day instead. This might add an extra day or two but this is why we are asking for an extra $200 in case a situation like this arises.
The only other challenge that might come up is flaking cast and crew. It is very unlikely that this will happen if we get meals funded. It is a scientific fact that a college student cannot turn down a free meal.
Other Ways You Can Help
We appreciate any sort of support you can show us! Not only is funds important, we would like to get the word out for our project. Please share this with all of your friends and spread our cause to any who might be interested in supporting us. We just want to make a short film and we can’t do it without your help. Thank you so much.
