Weʼre raising £2,500 to help fund my filmmakers project, giving undiscovered talent a real chance to shine.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
For the past 4 years I have been living and working in New Zealand, whilst there, I set up a filmmaking group for new and emerging talent to get together once or twice a month to watch short films and collaborate in our own films.
I have been writing for over 10 years and recently started directing, although I started as an actor I found my talents really lay behind the camera.
Throughout the group's life, I met some incredible talent, with real enthusiasm and passion, and we currently have 2 films in 2 international film festivals, so we are excited to see what comes of that.
I came back to the UK as this is my birthplace, and I want to see if I can bring out the hidden talent over here, I have several scripts written and ready to go, so plenty to start the group off, all we need now is the start up funds to get this project running.
The money raised will buy equipment and feed everyone at meetings, not to mention paying filming permissions and paying to enter films into competitions.
It is an exciting time for Phoenix Entertainment, and we cannot wait to get started, you are about to change a lot of people's lives, young and old, and have people laughing, crying and gripping their chair arms with fear and intensity.
Thank you all!
