1 Week down! (a.k.a. Holy crap this is a lot of work! )

I’m not saying I didn’t expect this. I’m just confirming it. My buddies who have done crowdfunding before all told me it’s like having a second job. That’s not an exaggeration.

I still feel like I’m behind on my plans, but I’ve written over 150 emails so far and raised over $2000 of the $15,00+ I’m hoping for, so it’s going alright. You’d think writing emails would be easy, but in those numbers it’s a bit more time consuming than I expected. This week I’m hoping to finish the part where I bug my friends and then move on to my family! I also need to reach out to my horror community and then bands to see if they might share the links.

If you are reading this, please share this link in you social media!

So far I’m not doing a great job attracting strangers. Almost all my contributions are from people I know, which is incredibly generous of them, but I need to push outside of that asap.

Promo shoot

Well, this is overdue, but I’ll get into why in my next post.

So last weekend I got the other 2 actresses and a photographer together at Dapper Cadaver to shoot some fun photos for promoting my fundraising campaign coming up.

We got to use the space and props for free in exchange for doing some photos for their catalog. So it was half stylized editorial stuff and half more straight forward catalog shots. Heather, our photographer was amazing! She was so inspired by the props. We got all these awesome, almost abstract closeups with one of the crows. There was also this huge throne we got to use a bunch too. We had so much fun we stayed about 2 extra hours to get more.

Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes!

New site, New project!

Hey! I made this website and then I made ANOTHER one! It’s been a long time since I built one. Really since I was unemployed. I took the easy road this time and used a template. I’m too busy for something from scratch.

I’ve also applied for my registration for the LLC in California, so that should be finished in a few weeks.
I created new social media for this company as well as for the film. Now I gotta build them all up before the campaign launch in September. Also gotta lock in the plan for that as well.
I booked the shoot location for the end of December!! It’s so great! I’ll post about that later.
I have the budget mostly worked out. I need a few more details, but I have a decent estimate now.

So much to do still. So much.
