Gosh. Is it February already?? The new year is surely off to a running start and if you were half as busy as Team ZEMIRA was in 2009 then you know that 2010 is shaping up to be the year where all that hard work will finally pay off. Still, like many of you our job is far from over. As we continue to make great strides in the pre-production phase of our film, growing ever closer to getting this film made and in theaters, we realize that in order to achieve our goal we must kick things up a notch in our efforts to raise the funds necessary to cover the cost of producing ZEMIRA.
We have a fantastic and in-demand Director of Photography, Francisco Escobar, who grew up in conditions similar to our title character and understands first-hand what we’re trying to accomplish with this film on both a social and artistic level. We're mutually excited to work with each other. As such, we are reaching out to you all via ChipIn.com, as your donations will enable us to pay Francisco and his crew, keep working artists working, and ultimately empower a generation.
If it’s just $5 or $20 you can spare, that’s wonderful, as every amount matters; donors who contribute $50 or more will get a DVD of the film once its completed, $200 and up will also have their names included in the film's end credits under "Special Thanks To," and if you’re able to be as generous to donate $500 or above, you can get what they call a ‘walk-on’ role in the film, which basically means you’ll be one of the ‘background’ characters (non-speaking) in an essential scene of the film. Donors who contribute $1000 and above will receive Associate Producer credit. All contributions will be made tax deductible by way of our fiscal sponsor. Either way, your gift will be one that will never cease giving. Chip in now:
