Founder, 7k Films (www.7kfilms.com). Feature Film Grants. We take care of the funding. You go make your movie.
As the producer and creator of the grant, thank you to NoFilmSchool for writing about it, and we have two comments:
- To clarify the budget: if, in the judgement of the producing team and filmmaker, we decide that the finished feature film has commercial potential, we will certainly have a discussion about investing more money in a marketing and sales strategy, or for whatever technical costs are necessary for release. It would be silly not to!
- To those who are making assumptions about the quality of the work while not having seen the film (or even any of the footage), we say: when it comes to the quality of the work we would think the respectable thing to do as a filmmaker would be to withhold comment on its quality until after you - or at least somebody - has actually seen it.
I reeeeeally could've done without the narration on that one.
Same question - seemed they covered everything except the bottom line: was it, or will they be profitable?
