We are just five days into our Indiegogo fundraiser for SADIE and already we’ve raised almost 70% of our funding goal! We are so thankful to all of our contributors thus far, and we definitely want to keep this momentum going. For anyone who hasn’t checked out our Indiegogo campaign, you can have a look at our video (which we shot in beautiful Quidi Vidi) and the different perks we’re offering to our generous funders right here: http://igg.me/at/SadieTheFilm/x
Feel free to share this link if you’re able, and if you want to make a contribution, please know that even the smallest amount brings us closer to ensuring we can create the film we set out to make, and that our vision for SADIE can be realized. We are aiming to accurately reconstruct the 1940s in Newfoundland, and to do it justice, we’ll be devoting quite a bit of our budget to the art direction. People will be more invested in the story if they buy into its reality. Details, both big and small, will help convey the world our characters live in. We’re very honoured to be telling a story based in our home province and are working hard to get it right.
This is a perfect place to mention three award winning films with historical settings and incredible production design. These are movies with huge budgets beyond the scope of a short, but we’re sharing them with you because we find them so inspirational. They also feature lead roles for women, just like our film.
1) Atonement (2008) starring Keira Knightly.
2) Marie Antoinette (2006) starring Kirsten Dunst.
3) Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007) starring Cate Blanchette
