Paranormal Activity at Pabst?
Replying to: Berith
That’s your first comment in 10 years of being a subscriber? That’s truly amazing. You would think you’d have a lot to comment on in 10 years ... Also, you’re hiding behind a screen name, which remains anonymous. I am the filmmaker you're slandering above. If you want to contact me directly I will be happy to have an open dialogue with you. I do feel bad for you that you are so angry and I’m sorry you feel the way you do, but what you're saying is far from the truth. We have had two crowd-funding campaigns. We made about $1800 (after fees) from our Kickstarter campaign last spring and $1400 (after fees) with our Indiegogo campaign that just ended Sunday (and we do have not any funds from that yet). If I am paying my bills with $1800 FOR A YEAR (like you said) that’s pretty remarkable. I wish my bills were that low. To be frank, we spent most of that on insurance to protect the cast / crew & liability to protect the venues we are “exploiting” along with some small equipment for the film. I want to point out that the vast majority of the money donated to this project was from my family and my friends, (not Milwaukee Magazine subscribers like you said). They are people who I all know personally and believe in me and this project. Making a film like this is extremely difficult with the tight budget, getting everyone’s schedule in-line to film along with the venues that we want to cover. That is why it has taken as long as it has. I am editing the film, planning the location shoots all alone (on top of being a single Father and working for a living), and I have two producers that I work with on music and interviews. Making film is my dream and I doing the best I can. We aren’t making this film for profit .. we will try but that was never our objective. We are planning on running it through the film festival circuit to share our journey. We have a percentage based plan in place for all cast/crew if it is successful and compensation is not an issue. Not sure where you are getting you information from, but it’s not from myself or any of my producers. Again, I am truly sorry you feel the way you do and I look forward to talking to you to address your harsh accusations.
