St Johns College Film funding

By Peter Mccarthy


We are Film students in St. Johns College in Cork. We are making 4 short films over the next few months and we are looking for support in making them.

Brief outlines:

Reserved - When out of his depth, can a shy receptionist connect with a vulnerable hotel guest when tasked with her safety.

The Diva and The Sound Man - When a financially struggling sound technician hears something he shouldn’t - will he sell the story or keep it to himself?

Medium - Two former film students have started a business doing fake seances. When they are expecting a new client, one is held up and the other must handle things on her own, leading to an unexpected outcome.

Our Father - Three siblings discover their father, dead, in the garden of their childhood home. Believing the culprit is among them, a race against the clock begins to uncover the truth before the guards arrive on the scene.

Crowdfunding will help us achieve an ideal vision for our films. To make a short film with high production values it is necessary to have a budget to cover certain areas. A brief breakdown of our costs look something like this:

Production Design (inc props, etc.) - 400 EUR

Locations and Transport - 200 EUR

Catering - 220 EUR

Fundit 8% Charge - 80E UR

Each student will be working on 2 of the 4 short films between February and March. We have been assigned roles that we are suited to and get to work on the projects we are most interested in! As a year group, we have loads of experience working together and this year we are determined to bring all our energy together to create 4 amazing shorts.

We aim to hold various casting nights to seek out great performers and we already have scheduled days to seek out locations. These are probably to two main risks facing our Film projects, but overcoming these hurdles is something we have learned to do since starting this course!

This will all be split evenly between the 4 shorts! We have also arranged several fundraising events in our area to support our goal and the hidden costs, such as; bake sales, pub quizzes and gaming tournaments. We want to reach out to as many people as we can to achieve the vision we have.

All of us from Level 6 Film Production would like to thank you for taking the time to read about our project. We are very dedicated here at St.John's and without your funding it would not be possible to go ahead with our productions.
