Why Help Us?
Good question! Each year, Production Club is allocated grant money from UWM’s Student Association in order to aid in film production. However, these funds have strict restrictions and may only used for specific items. This year, these funds will be devoted towards the rental of an impressive camera package. A camera is only part of the picture however, and we’ll need additional funding for other necessary supplies to allow us to create a stronger production value and make the best film possible. In the past, your support has allowed us to pursue ambitious films that have successfully gone on to festival circuits internationally.
Your Support Will Fund…
Location Fees: Renting out spaces tend to become costly, and reserving public places will be key for this year’s production.
Art Department: This entails numerous changes in wardrobe and makeup for each character, dressings for each location, and specific props that help to tell our story in the way we want to tell it. The design of each and every element will take us more convincingly into the grim world of What Arose Such A Clatter, and with funding we can bring it all to life!
Craft Services: Long hours of shooting make for a hungry crew, and a good meal works wonders! If we can purchase food to provide to our members on set, we can ensure that everyone stays energized and the filming process can keep running smoothly.
The Cast: In return for their time and dedication on set, we’d like to be able to compensate our lead cast members.
Rewards: We are trying to put together something ambitious and fantastic, and we’d like to show our gratitude for your support and trust in us. Part of our budget will go into providing you, the backers, with a token of our appreciation.
Risks and challenges
With any project of this nature comes a whole host of challenges. For What Arose Such A Clatter, specific problems arise in regards to finding suitable public locations, as well as filming outside in weather that can’t be described as ideal. Inclement weather can hold up production, as can public interruptions. However, with all of us here at Production Club putting in remarkable effort, we’re certain that these challenges can be overcome.
