Hi! Thank you for visiting my profile and considering my work. Let's keep this simple, shall we? 

I am a filmmaker and have been for the past 8 years. I have worked on about 15 feature films, 3 of which I produced. I have also written and directed 8 short films, several of which are about people with disabilities and are tear-jerkers. IMDb link.

Why do I need a patreon account and your support? I would like to expand my ability to create content that highlights unique perspectives. I do not have a non-profit set up currently, but I need funding to be able to keep creating. You can read more about me here: https://www.courtneysandifer.com/

I'm a "Filmmaker": What does it mean? Well, it means that I can:
  • Take a concept from a conversation to a completed screenplay
  • Take a complex, broken down, 90-page script and - through logistics and "movie magic" - compose a thoughtful schedule and a budget to match
    • For feature films, this can be 15-25 days and range from $25-150,000
  • Hire crew and cast; arranging auditions, location scouts, photo shoots and wardrobe fittings along the way
  • Execute contracts for investors, locations, cast, crew, rentals and insurance
  • Rehearse with actors and extras, giving feedback and helping them get in touch with the character they are playing
  • Envision a set and build it from scratch in a blank space (Yes, power tools involved!)
  • Maintain an accounting of expenses and payroll during a production
  • Coordinate the storage and backing-up of digital files from the camera
  • Edit footage into sequences and stories; syncing audio files with video, adjusting color and audio levels, adding music, titles, graphics and transitions
  • Export video files for various purposes - broadcast, cinema screens, social media or websites
