Dear sir or madame, We the committee of artists ask of you in kindest regards to donate and allow us the opportunity to create this biographical representation of The Greatest Magician of all time HARRY HOUDINI. Anything you can afford will be truly helpful and will help get Houdini on stage at the Orpheum Theatre this Summer to perform a medley of his chain and card tricks and his Death Defying Mystery escape from an iron can!
Awaiting your reply, yours truly,
REWARDS & OFFERINGS
THIS film takes place at the turn of the century. Everything in the film WILL be an accurate historical representation of the time period. If not antique furniture and objects then we will have them made or altered to be replicas of the time. The same goes for costumes and the lighting. What we're trying to do is create the most authentic feeling snapshot of Harry Houdini in this time of his life.
TO achieve this we'll need a pretty large budget. Major costs will be the theatre rental, the art direction, costumes, makeup and the props, old chains and locks. We will be shooting at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix and will be filling the seats with an audience. This film will be submitted to film festivals worldwide such as Sundance, Cannes, Toronto to try and give everyone a peak into the life of Houdini.
WHAT we will reward you with is all on the side. Among those rewards we're also giving anyone who donates $100 dollars or more the chance to win the Vanity featured in the teaser trailer along with other antique props/costumes/furniture from the film. But, we feel anyone making any contribution at all should be encouraged to email us and if you want to be part of the production in any way we'd love to get you involved somehow. We will need a lot of extras and anyone who is contributing will get the chance to be in the film. This is going to be a huge project and anyone can help.
IF you can't afford to donate email us anyway. Share us on Facebook, Twitter, anywhere, everywhere. If you know anyone who is interested in Houdini or is very knowledgeable on him or the time period put them in touch with us. Together we hope to create the first real film about The Greatest Magician That Ever Lived.
