I'LL BE THE ROCKET, YOU BE THE FUEL

Directing Showreel - Ivy Jelisavac from Ivy Jelisavac on Vimeo.

Hi, new friend! My name is Ivy and I'm obsessed with what it means to be human. In my work, I explore relationships and connection, and the resilience of the human spirit.
I believe in vulnerability, progress, the magic of late night conversations, and DOGS.

Right now, the type and quality of work I can produce depends on one of two things:
Either the desires of clients and financiers, or my personal resources - like my recent series Relationshit, which took three years to make because I financed all eight episodes out of pocket. (You can subscribe to Relationshit's free newsletter here, even without becoming a patron of mine.)

Watch the teaser here:

RELATIONSHIT - Season 1 Teaser from Ivy Jelisavac on Vimeo.

When I was 19, I worked on a production where my shortest workday was 17 (seventeen) hours, and was later diagnosed with clinical burnout as a result of that shoot. While still a teen! I wanted to continue working in film, but knew there had to be a better way. After working in every single department to thoroughly learn the process from every crew member's perspective, I founded a production company that's ethical and humane.

I believe that a healthy crew is the only acceptable kind of crew, and in line with that, I spend extra time to ensure working hours and conditions are appropriate, catering is nutritious, and interactions are respectful.

That means as a patron you are not only financing the content you want to see more of:
By supporting my career, you are supporting a force for making the film industry a more humane, more inclusive, more sustainable, and more wonderful space.
Tiers
Patron
$2 or more per month 6 patrons
Every Sunday, I write a post about what I accomplished that week, and my goals for the next. 

If you are interested in what a professional filmmaker's daily life looks like, or, like me, you are obsessed with following other people's productivity and progress, you will adore these.

Once a month, we meet for a 30 minute group video hangout (you are welcome to only type or observe!) where I share insider stories, answer questions, and get to know you all as people!

Goals
$80 of $135 per month
Breaking even

This is the amount I pay each month for website hosting, domains and digital subscriptions that I need to work. If I reach this goal, I'll break even on that - and be able to allocate the funds I previously used for this to producing more and better work.
