This is the same idea as a wedding registry except you donate gifts for the various line items for the shoot. You can choose exactly what you want to donate for. As always, all donations are tax deductible and any donations of $500 or more gets a thank you in the film credits.
Many people do not know why films are so expensive. Below is an itemized list of all the bare-bones expenses for our one week shoot in Europe. (this is without anyone getting paid!)
Before leaving for England we were able to raise enough money to buy our plane tickets and cover some other expenses. We were very lucky enough to be hosted by some wonderful people within the homeopathic community which saved us a lot of money, but we still had expenses we had to pay out of pocket.
We had a wonderful shoot. We filmed at the event at the House of Commons sponsored by the Homeopathic Research Institute. (HRI). We interviewed historian Francis Treuherz. We spoke with Alex Tournier and Rachel Roberts at HRI. We spent many hours shooting at Helios homeopathic pharmacy.
We have been working on this documentary about homeopathy for the past few years. Our goal is to complete principal production by the end of the summer.
We need a lot more money to complete the film, but helping us cover our costs for the UK shoot is a big help. Please contact us if you want to donate towards the post production of the film.
