Momentum! I’m feeling it, thanks to two friends who stepped up this week with personal donations of $500 and $100! It is deeply gratifying to get this kind of support. It means we can keep moving forward with the many negotiations involved in producing a TV documentary. The next big production step is to sign the videographers and then capture the sit-down interviews with the doctors/heroes I am profiling.
You’ll notice that those two donations were off-line. You can also make donations at the film’s fundraising website. Hey, in your travels today, tell somebody about indiegogo.com. It’s a great platform for supporting creativity and projects that make a difference!
Thanks to all for your support, your prayers, and your good thoughts. Film-making is a walk of faith!
Crowd funding for documentary “A Doctor’s Dream”
Thanks to the crowd-funding website indiegogo.com, the documentary film project “A Doctor’s Dream” can now receive your financial support! We have set up a 64-day campaign with an ambitious goal of $37,500.00! Just the sound of that amazes me! On the other hand, I have a budget in hand that grounds me in the reality of what it takes to produce a one-hour documentary that is up to PBS standards.
Our shooting schedule is just as aggressive, with most of the primary photography scheduled for the first quarter of 2012.
Indiegogo.com has a fantastic format that allows us to engage with thousands of independent producers, fans, friends and activists. And we can receive donations there from $25 up to $5,000 with some pretty cool perqs (“perks”). (If you have a “bigger idea” in mind, please contact me at steve (at) aDoctorsDream (dot) com.)
I hope you will consider joining us in this project. This stories we capture in this film will energize a new generation of students and entrepreneurs. Our cities desperately need both!
