Storyteller: Don’t Stifle Creativity Because of Budget

A woman races down the pavement fear etched across her face. She fights to control her breathing but the footsteps chasing behind her has her anxiety levels peaked. Fear can be the death of you or your salvation. She is determined to attain the latter. She darts out into the street. A car horn blares in anger as it barely misses her. Her assailant is too close. A few more feet and he’ll be on top of her and God only knows what will come. Her lungs burn like acid. Her body aches as if it had been beaten. She pushes forward. A hard shove knocks her face down. She screams in terror, arms flinging wildly. It takes her a minute to realize no one is upon her. She turns toward the street and is mesmerized by the flames engulfing the night sky. Mayhem has struck. A passenger van has slammed into a fuel truck. Beneath its wheels lie her assailant, crushed to the bone. From her position the scene seems surreal. Pedestrians flee from the chaos in panic but despite the destruction, she is at peace. The fuel truck explodes one last time in finality.

Any director of photographer worth their salt can come up with a number of ways to capture this scene. Whether they choose to develop it in post (editing), a large studio, or actually shut down a few blocks and film, you can imagine it would cost a pretty penny to produce a scene of this magnitude. As an Indie Filmmaker you don’t have the financial luxury to film big budget action scenes or those crazy alien invasions. You must not only be creative in your content but also in how you PRODUCE your content. Yes this is common knowledge, but don’t be that indie storyteller trying to find their way around money. If you take this route you could end up altering your vision a little too much. Instead, go out there and seek the funding. Sure you may be new to the game but that doesn’t mean there aren’t individuals who believe in your vision just as much as you. They just don’t know about it yet.

Why not let Indie Film Funding enlighten them? We are designed to help you set up and promote your production to gain capital. Our goal is to assist the storyteller in covering their cost.
