We have featured more than 60 artists so far, and growing steadily. We feature one artist every week!
Why am I asking for your support?
What we can get from your help:
- Equipment - Equipment has always been the biggest cost for us. I got a micro lens for capturing more details of artworks, and recently we bought 360 camera for showing more fun experience. But if we want to do more 4K editing, we have to upgrade our computers. There is also constant needs for travel fees, hard drive etc.
- Crew - I’ve been mostly filming these videos on my own. However, I’d love to hire another crew member to help me film more behind the scene videos, 360 virtual reality videos and also help me carry some gear, especially during the brutal winter time in Canada...
- Team - Our team member have been very supportive and all of them are very talented artists themselves. I want to continue this project with them but also make sure everyone gets paid fairly.
- Web hosting + ongoing web development - We are planning to create one page per artists to showcase more videos, artworks or some collaborations on our website. We need robust enough hosting plan to support the highest spikes in traffic we ever get so we don't crash during those moments.
- Social media “boosts”- We truly want to let more people know the artists we’ve filmed. With more money, we can use it on Google AdWords, YouTube ads, Facebook boosts and make sure more people will reach the post.
- Me - My basic need is to creating these contents without worrying too much about my financial situation. It will give more freedom to create and concentrating on developing this project.
- Writer - Once in a while, I also need someone to help me writing marketing contents or any professional pieces. English is not my first language so it always take longer than I thought to write.
- We'll work hard to keep this project as a creative project and not a business
Trust me, when I am not courting how many hours I work in terms of how much I get paid, every video is made purely by passion!
That's the basics. Exciting! With those pieces covered, 30sec film artists can support itself!
I will keep sharing updates, behind the scene footage... even film myself talking about the progress of this project once in a while!(even though it's still a challenge for me to talk in front of camera:P)
