THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN HELP!
Almost two years ago, this initiative was launched with a $4,000 fundraising campaign which ultimately netted $10,536. Now the documentary is almost finished and once the final touches (animation, cutting, music, etc) are added Brooklyn Castle will enter into the film festival race. BUT another $20,000 is needed to finish this project.
And for this the group is using Kick Starter
for its fundraising. Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects.
Every week, tens of thousands of amazing people pledge millions of dollars to projects from the worlds of music
and other creative fields.
This is not about investment or lending. Project creators keep 100% ownership and control over their work. Instead, they offer products and experiences that are unique to each project. On Kickstarter, a project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. Why? It protects everyone involved. Creators aren’t expected to develop their project without necessary funds, and it allows anyone to test concepts without risk.
AS THINGS STAND OF TODAY, with 47 days left in the campaign, the group has raised a total of $1,930 from a total of 28 backers (donors). That means that another $18,070 still has to be found from generous and conscientious individuals who feel that this project is worth it. Donations can be as little as $5.
