Film " The New Breed" - Banff to Montreal Canoe Journey

I wold like to thank all those who have donated to the "New Breed" (NB) film project or the climbing tools series. All donations go towards increasing productions values. The film realistically will run a whopping $350,000.00 CND. Your involvement means more to me then words can say. I don't take your trust lightly and promise to produce something that you will be proud to have been a part of. A donation of $50 or more gets you a copy of the film.

Feet in the starting blocks

So i have been working on the films treatment. A treatment is like the paper form of your pitch. It gives any potential investor an idea of what your film will look like or how it will play out. Course wrote way to much I realized I had basically written a script, voice over narration and all. I proofed it in a cool program called Grammery which somehow reads the text and makes corrections and suggestions. It's a pretty complex algorithm cause it actually reads whole sentences and lets you know if it is fragmented, passive or you tend to over use a word it will suggest an alternative. 

The other thing I have been working on is my crowd sourceing funding page. This has been going pretty good with the only real problem being getting the trailer finished. That has been a bit of a hold up. What to really include and how much to leave out. I need to keep it down to a few minutes I think. I was pretty wordy. 

Also taken me awhile to set up a decent green screen set up. I finally got a flawless key and a look that I like. No it is a matter of keeping things in point form and just get the message out there. my idea of how to present the film has been changing so that really doesn't help. I think I have settled on a story and how to present it. 

All this seems to be happening to fast. I have less then six months before I am leaving. That is like, so nothing in the overall scale of the universe. I still haven't heard from MEC which could be good or bad. maybe they don't get back to you if they passed you by. I have sort of been counting on them. Guess it is time to try a few more places for funding. APTN might be a good one.
