You can still be part of our crowdfunding campaign

It’s a great feeling. We’ve reached our goal. And now, with a wave of goodwill towards our film, and the edit in front of us, will you please help us imagine an even more successful campaign? If you wanted to be part of it but haven’t had the chance to yet, you still can!

Post-production isn’t the final step in making a film. After the film is made, there are still festival submissions to pay for, legal, distribution and promotional costs to name but a few. Our post-production budget was small and largely based on a lot of good will from our small team who have all put their heart and soul into the film. If we can achieve a higher goal in this campaign right now, that just means a finished film without seeking out other funds further down the line. It means we could share the finished film with the participants who have waited 4 years to see it sooner. It also means we could submit Addicted to Sheep to international film festivals with the care and attention it deserves, to give it the best chance to reach its audience worldwide.

There is a fine balance between asking too much or too little when running a crowd-funding campaign and we felt a £7,000 target was attainable, but we always thought we would need more funding later in order to meet the final costs. So, if you want to be part of our journey and can still help us that would be really great.

Even if you can only donate after our 30th of April deadline, you will still be able to do so as we have run the campaign from our own donate page on the Addicted to Sheep website and will keep our support page open for a while longer while we are editing the final film.

With about 8 weeks of post-production in front of us, we aim to complete the film by July 2014. We’ll be posting weekly ‘tales from the edit’  so please keep checking on our progress and sign up for our newsletter on our home page to make sure you don’t miss anything.  It would be really great if you could join us as we want you stay on our film-making journey all the way to the big screen!
