Yes, you heard right! We are now in the midst of a fundraiser campaign which was officially launched mid-January 2018.
I must admit fundraising is not an easy feat. When I began my research about this process, I was hesitant to even get started. All the information I found about it was quite overwhelming and just seemed too complicated and time consuming. And so I procrastinated s long as I could but finally got my act together and started to gradually composing a GoFundMe page in December 2017. I spent so much time working on this page making sure it was perfect (well as perfect as I could possibly make it).
Most importantly, I was very impressed with myself when I produced a fundraiser video (shown below) featuring myself (*gasp*) which helped jumpstart the campaign. I have always been behind the camera and developed a very comfortable place for myself there :-). But I admit today that deep down inside, I had fun doing it. I just had to get out of my head. Once I got over that hurdle, there was no stopping me.
So without further ado, please do visit our GoFundMe page and DONATE. "Mr. Gele" has been a passion project for me for so long and now that it is completed, I need all the help I can get to push this film further than I can on my own. Funds from this campaign will go towards marketing, film festival submission fees, traveling costs and all the unexpected expenses that occur with promoting a film.
