I was recently asked what costs were associated with making a film. I have created a pie chart that shows how the $50,000 budget will be spent.
The majority of the budget goes towards our cast and crew. These expenditures include their salaries, lodging, and food. Luckily we already own the majority of the equipment we need to film the movie properly. We are also very fortunate in the fact that we have locked up the majority of our locations at little to no cost.
Every dime we raise goes towards the making of Trailer Park Princess. I hope you will consider purchasing one of the items in our store or even pre-ordering Trailer Park Princess. By request we have added a PayPal button in our store so you can donate money directly to the film without purchasing a product.
Your money goes a long way to putting creative and talented people to work. On this level of independent film making it's rare you have a production that is willing to pay cast and crew in accordance to SAG low budget scale. We believe people should be compensated for their talent and time. We cut costs in other ways but never at the expense of our cast and crew.
As I stated in my last blog if we fail to reach our funding goal we will refund the money for the $30 package as well as the $10 pre-order. Thank you for your time and your support.
