Short Summary

My name is Steve Harshfield, and thanks for visiting the IndieGoGo page for my feature film, Quanta!!  I'm excited for the opportunity to bring this ghost story/thriller to fruition after several years of polishing the script into what it is today.  :-)

I've been in the TV & Film business for many years.  After graduating film school, I came west to hone my craft on-set, as an assistant director, production coordinator, sound mixer, and camera assistant.  Ultimately, my goal was to write, direct, and produce my own material.

After successful outings as a producer on projects like They Live Among Us, Deader Days, and several short films, the natural progression was to "kick it up a notch" and bring Quanta to reality.

By contributing to this campaign, you'll not only be helping me reach the next level in my career, but you'll help a group of extremely talented professionals - both in front of as well as behind the camera - display their talents.  And you'll get some great mementos to share and display!

 

Quanta Notes

 

What We Need

Filmmaking is a collaboration.  Quanta will take a minimum of 50 people to be made - not including extras (about 100 total).  It creates REAL JOBS in and around Seattle and Tacoma, employing professionals in multiple disciplines for at least a month.  Here's how the $$$ breaks down:

Cast:  $20,048

Some of the most talented performers from around the country have already expressed an interest in being involved in the project.  They are all professional actors with families (and bills) of their own.

Crew:  $29,600

An unbelievable assortment of characters has rallied behind the scenes to help bring Quanta to life.  From casting and storyboards to editing and location scouting, a great deal of time & effort has already been put into laying the foundation for a successful production! 

Production expenses:  $21,285

Everything from equipment rental (like the Red camera, for instance), locations, insurance, and, yes, especially food (hungry people are never fun to be around).  This amount also includes IndieGoGo and Paypal fees, as well as the costs to create, assemble, and ship perks.

Post-Production expenses:  $15,000

Once the footage has been shot, the post-production process begins...  Editing, sound design, music, color correction, and titles all take time and cost money.

 

IndieGoGo is one prong of a four-prong approach to funding the entire movie.  Every dime raised through IndieGoGo allows the production to build a larger audience and remain independent.  If we collect more than our goal, that money goes toward building a more spectacular movie:  more equipment, better access to people and locations, and a more robust marketing campaign.

If we don't reach our entire goal, we will have to rely more heavily on other methods of funding, such as angel investors and co-production deals.

What You Get

We start with a public shout-out, broadcasting our thanks across social media.  In a way, you get your own little sliver of fame just for helping us out...  But that's just the beginning!!
 
From a private online showing of the film before its public release, to DVDs, to Quanta merchandise, to being a background extra (and getting a meal with cast & crew), to bigger Quanta experiences like tickets to the Seattle premiere, private screenings, and nights out on the town with the director, every level offers something to express our sincerest gratitude for your contribution!
 
And if you own a business?  We have a special business level perk (the Tau level), allowing you to get your business and/or products into the movie!
 
Check out all the perks to the right.  If there's something you don't see or you have an idea, please feel free to drop us a message!
 

FOR ALL MUON & NEUTRINO LEVEL CONTRIBUTORS:

If you are not local and cannot make the trip to the Seattle area, you can have a photo featured in a scene instead!  :-)

The Impact

One thing I love about life is how everyone we meet, everything we do, every place we see, becomes a part of us.  Whether we realize it or not, every little thing shapes who we are.  That is a central part of the story of Quanta, and that certainly speaks VOLUMES about the impact that your belief in this project will have.

Much like the idea for Quanta itself - which grew out of that simple scene on page 47 - everything starts somewhere...

Through this project and IndieGoGo, EVERYONE can help transform movies.  Instead of simply consuming what studios distribute - which really just comes down to what they think will give them the biggest bang for their buck - you can now help filmmakers create the ideas that YOU want to see!!

But it's so much more than that...  With this project, you not only give us the ability to make Quanta, but you become part of the groundswell.  Because, you see, it doesn't stop here...  We want to continue to create projects that excite us and others - projects that excite an audience and give them movies they can enjoy again!
