My name is Austin. I am the founder of Heart Pounding Productions, a multi-media production company. My goal is for HPP to become the next big Film & Media production company in North Carolina. I began this company around 2008 when a friend and I tried to make our own Star Wars fan film. Doing this is what made me realized my passion for visual storytelling, and after many people began to see my growing skills creating videos, I thought HPP could be a real company that I could make a living from.
After graduating film school, and doing small corporate and wedding videos, and working a part-time job, I've decided to commit to this FULL FORCE. I now have my own studio space, and a couple friends to help me out, and with YOUR help, we can make this vision into reality! Now I'm sure you have a few questions...
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH THE MONEY?
The first thing is that we can afford to commit more time to bring you content on our YouTube channel consistently. Once our goals are reached, I can leave my part-time job and focus on creating. If all goes as visioned, THIS IS WHAT COULD HAPPEN...
- Start creating weekly short films. Genres in action, drama, comedy, and more. These will be our stepping stones to work up towards creating our first feature film!
- Daily vlogging on my personal YouTube channel. We can hire a crew dedicated to these videos. This will be more of a 'behind the scenes' video series. You will see our journey from start to end. Also, editing tutorials in visual effects.
- We could even launch a merchandise store! (this one's just more of a thought, but who doesn't like cool stuff to wear/have?)
BUT PLEASE UNDERSTAND!
We are a very small group, and these are very BIG GOALS for us. We may make mistakes sometimes, but that's how we learn and become greater. If along the journey, you have ideas and suggestions for how we could be better, PLEASE feel free to tell us! :D
THANK YOU for taking your time to check us out. If you have any questions or just wanna say Hey, please don't hesitate! :) (post your questions/comments here, or tweet em' at me @hppfilms) This is going to be an awesome journey, and we look forward to having you with us! LET'S GO!
