Contribute To The Film

Our team’s large ambition comes with a similar budget. We are striving for the utmost quality in order to fulfill our creative vision, and although we are plan to use our own equipment on top of Ryerson University resources, we still have to pay for lighting and camera equipment rentals, filming locations, costumes, props, transportation, craft services, set decoration, and insurance. It all adds up. Check out our Indiegogo page for a more in-depth explanation of our budget and what donating could mean for you!
