After these two intense months of crowdfunding, mailbox filling and videos, you may have seen it, maybe not, but we have gone over the original target of 6250 euros.
You are so far 239 to have supported us, it is difficult to thank you individually but we mean it. Really. Supporting a film that does not exist yet and building the first quarter of the budget together is something that, from our side, reinforces our will and it is simply heartwarming.
The film will be shot in several stages during 2013, except from mischance. In the meantime, we will keep you informed about the progress of the project and we will count on you for the shooting (including a scene where Shua is surrounded by a significant crowd, the representation will be at its best).
You are the first to believe in us, this can be easy to say, but it is very important. Without your support, we would have found a pretty hard beginning for the project, and that makes it all different.
Do not hesitate to send us your comments, your desires, your passions, anything really. The film Shua will be a progressive project, rather than a static one. Any idea to produce this film is very welcome.
We work for the moment on the production dossier in order to solicit support from producers and institutions to complete the budget.
The adventure continues.
The Shua Team & Kelzang Ravach.
On the 1 September, the « Shua » project is launching a contribution campaign on KissKissBankBank to continue the movie.
Be ready to be a part of the adventure! Sustain creativity together!!
