Important Update: Fundraising Almost Done!

Hello Everyone!

So we’re in the last week of our fundraising drive with Kickstarter. We’re 80% to our goal but we still need a bit of help to push the fundraiser over the edge — Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing site, so we need your help to get that last 20% in place. We have incentives from $5 and up if you can chip in, and if you can’t but you still want to help out, please repost the kickstarter this link in your social media outlets:

We have until May 8th at 6 PM Pacific. Thanks for your help!

Also, you can follow along with the process of the movie though Twitter, or you can join our Facebook page here.

Thanks, and thanks for supporting our movie.

Teaser Trailer!

Well, it’s less a teaser trailer and more like a super-condensed version of the opening credit sequence (minus a few key shots due to crappily-timed sunny weather) that we whipped up using footage shot last weekend:

If you like what you see, please go toss a few bucks into our Kickstarter account — we have 10 days left to raise the last little bit, and repost the link to help get the word out.

Thanks!

Lights, cameras…

Our equipment is rented, our locations are mostly set, our cast and crew have received their first call sheet, and our fingers crossed for some decent (ie: not too sunny, not too rainy) weather tomorrow. Keep an eye out, because we should have the rough cut of the opening title sequence uploaded here in a couple days, and then we’re taking a break while our Kickstarter and other fundraising efforts wrap up and we develop characters and plot points with our actors.

If you’re in the mood to pitch in a little cash to help our little do-it-ourselves indie flick, click on the link above. $5 or $5,000 — any amount helps and there are incentives for any price range. Also, we’re constantly on the look out for musicians, locations, interesting eccentrics, and local businesses. The script is designed to allow us a lot of flexibility, so if you’re interested in getting a little bit of inexpensive exposure for yourself or your business, shoot us an email at thebuskersandloumovie@gmail.com.

On that note, my alarm is set for 6 AM and I’m going to close my eyes for a bit and try hard to not to think about scheduling, budgeting, props, set dressing, locations, wardrobe, makeup, cameras, lights, audio gear, actors, transportation, permits, or craft services for a couple of hours…
