18 year old. Pro filmmaker and photographer. Asheville, North Carolina.
I am in High School and am currently in pre-production for a 3-45 minute film. A feature length has to be more than 40 minutes to be considered for an Academy Award. I know what you feel. I am trying to fund right now as well and am thinking about using Kickstarter or find a sponsor. So far thats my route. I am trying to keep my spending for gear and stuff simple and maybe just rent for now and also not trying to spend much on Actors or Crew either. But if I do, I am making sure I fund a lot. I think my idea is good and know it will be completely awesome. I would say just talk around with businesses, churches, etc and see if they would want to sponsor.
I thought it was pretty solid for your first music video. I liked the wording a lot. I didnt like how some of the cuts were pretty harsh and the difference bouncing camera angles for a few times when he was raping. Just my 2 cents.
