The other night at the BlackMilk Vs Sailor Jerry party, I was asked at what stage we are at with Sunrise Hotel. I think it is generally assumed that it is a quick process to make a short movie. This isn’t always the case, depending on the short movie, it can take months of preparation. It really all boils down to how close to the original vision you want to make it.
With Sunrise Hotel, we are quite adamant to make it fit into the “vibe” of the original script … This has taken a bit longer due to our ongoing search for the perfect locations and we’ve also had to start a process that we’re all quite new at. The process of gaining funding.
We have realised that gaining funding for a creative project is quite a tricky thing as you have to keep true to your creative vision, while being able to offer the investor something they can benefit from. I think that we have a lot to offer when it comes to this … We are more than happy to negotiate.
Having produced 6 short art and horror films over the past two years without funding, we have a good idea of how to keep a budget down to what is necessary without skimping on quality. After all, our short films have won many awards and gained a lot of exposure during this time, in national newspapers and at various events, as well as online and abroad.
But all this said … trying to find the right sponsor isn’t that easy at all. So if anyone knows of someone who would like to get involved in this endeavour or if you are interested in this offer for sponsorship,please download a more detailed document here.
In exchange for funding we will be able to offer a variety of benefits, including, but not limited to:
1. Online video, image and text exposure.
2. Mention in the credits.
3. Possible corporate product placement.
4. Possible advertising at screening events.
5. Possible creation of an advert or promotional film in exchange for financial sponsorship
Partial sponsorship will be acceptable.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
