The good news, all three films are completely shot! With the help of a $5000 grant from Riverside Church Sharing Fund, past crowdfunding contributors, the filmmaker's funding injections, interns, and pure old fashioned sweat equity, we completed the production stage.
The not so great news, post production lacks financial support. Post is where all the things needed to make a film entertaining and bring the story to life. Contributions are essential. They take on various forms, whether you donate, share our campaign on social media or attend a screening once the film is completed, your help is what makes the film successful!
Contributions go to:
Sound design, Foley, and clean up
Music and Composition
Licensing third party content

MIDDLEMEN SUPPORTERS: To date we have received support from over 19 crowdfunding contributors, one $5000 grantfrom Riverside Church Sharing Fund, and in-kind legal service support from Cardozo Indie Film Clinic. We also have a team of up and coming filmmakers assisting with sweat equity. We are doing as much work as we can in-house to offset the financial costs but to make 'Middlemen' great we have to out source services like creative editing, color correction, sound, animation, and legal professional services.
