ABOUT THE FILM:
"Allergies" is a highly stylized film with many particular details that need attention. We want the film to have a "time-less" feel with some accents from the 1970s. With the use of saturated colors and vibrant patterns, the style will really POP to create a unique universe for our characters. Because there are no grown-ups in the film, the story is strictly viewed from the point of view of the kids, whose world will be shown through whimsical costume and production design.
WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO:
The funds raised from this campaign will be used in many different ways. A majority will go towards the intense "creation" of the world our characters live in, which includes production design, costume design, and locations. Another great portion will come from the need to feed and transport our talented actors and hard-working crew members. A hefty amount will also go towards the camera and lighting departments for special equipment and other necessary expendables. Last but not least, post-production & distribution. The hardest part of making a film is getting it seen! We're hoping to use a portion of the money for film festival submissions and distribution.
The best part about making a film is making it "come ALIVE." Seeing months and months and dozens of people's hard work pay off in the best way possible. Every donation counts no matter how small or large and we are incredibly grateful for each and every one of them. Even if you are unable to donate, we invite you to follow the film here and at our website...
