There is so much more to making a movie than most people ever realize and Joliet From Above is no exception.
From production costs during filming, to legal work like licensing & copyrights, we’re estimating that funds need to finish this movie will be about $15,000, but that’s before a physical DVD or Bluray is made.
A crowd funding campaign, like Kickstarter or GoFundMe may happen in the next few months, but in the meantime any funding we get before then will help lower the goal we’ve set. The only difference being some options may have a higher asking prices as crowd funding sites typically take a cut of the money we raise. We don’t expect anyone out there to just give us money without anything in return, so below is a set of incentives we’re planning on giving out when the crowd funding campaign goes live, but you can beat everyone to the punch.
