What do you need $30.000 for ?
We’re raising 30K USD to fund the entire production of 6 short-form episodes of Tech Bae. This money will cover everything from pre-production to production; think actors, crew, equiptment, location hire, insurance and the likes. Making film is expensive, but we’re pretty good at making things happen on a small budget, so count on us for making this special!
What happens if you earn more than $30.000
Well, firstly we will be very happy – because it means it will be easier to pay our taxes, but it also means we’ll be able to shoot scenes that we’d otherwise cut out because of additional location or production costs. It would also help us pay for editing and post-production which we’d be fundraising separately for.
What happens if you earn less than $30.000
We'll shoot fewer episodes and possibly make them shorter.
