WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
The first shots of this film were taken in 2011 at the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Since then we have been shooting regularly, travelling thousands of kilometers shooting stunning images and interviewing amazing people. Given the tight budget, so far everything has worked out miraculously for ANOTHER WORLD to become an amazing film, but now we need your help to put it finally out there. We are now in the final stages, we’re hoping to raise a minimum of €26,000 (that’s about $35,500 dollars) through Indiegogo to wrap-up the film. This is the bare minimum we need in order to complete post-production and start promotion and distribution. Whether it’s $5, $25, $100, $1000 or more, your contribution will help us to complete ANOTHER WORLD and to share it with the world. If we raise more than the goal of €26,000, that will continue to fund the remainder of the project as needed.
So far we have been working out of a really tight budget provided principally by Riccardo Gatto of Bluma Lab Srl (Rome), who was also able to attain a government grant and was recognized of cultural interest by the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali – Direzione Generale per il Cinema (MIBAC). Marco Belardi of Lotus Production Srl (Rome) also contributed significantly, especially bringing his extensive experience and know-how to the project. And then a small but always appreciated contribution by Own Air Srl (Rome). Also, to keep the budget as low as possible, during filming we also relied on the unselfish kindness of many individuals all over who supported the project in so many ways, and for that we are eternally and sincerely grateful.
We have also collaborated with amazing photographers and filmmakers around the world who have granted us the use of their special images and footage that was beyond our production budget but important to make our film even more beautiful. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of you for your generosity.
Unfortunately, the money is now spent and we need help to make it through the final stretch. Our goal is to have a finished film to premiere in less than two months. We’ve set the goal of raising €26,000 (that’s about $35,500 dollars) on Indiegogo to help keep us on schedule, complete the film and deliver it to festivals and a distributor. Your contribution will make the film’s completion possible and will go directly toward: Finishing paying our amazing crew, complete editing, music, color correction, audio mixing, archival footage licensing, translations, outreach and distribution. The 26,000 budget we need is broken down as follows:
COLOR CORRECTION & COLOR GRADING: We need €4000 to prepare our film for final delivery at a high standard.
MIX AUDIO & SOUND DESIGN: We already have an original score by our talented Giulio del Prato, but now we need €5000 for professional editing of the sound so we end up with a finished movie.
ARCHIVAL LICENSING: We need €3000 to pay for the licensing of outstanding material.
GRAPHICS & TRANSLATIONS: We need €4000 to pay for graphics and also for the translations & subtitling of all our materials.
OUTREACH & PROMOTION: We need €5000 to produce all the materials needed for outreach and promotional purposes, film festival submissions, shipping, travel costs to film festivals where we can present and promote Another World, legal, etc.
DCP FILM COPY: We need €5000 to pay for the Digital Cinema Package needed in order to exhibit the film theatrically, in festivals and then for future distribution.
