Project at a Glance Created : 4 months ago
I am working on “The painted horizon” a documentary film about the lives and works of graffiti artists spanning the last 5 decades. Its an ambitious project that I believe will help define a somewhat unknown history to many people. I have travelled to 3 continents, slept in over 50 hotels, drank over 1000 cups of coffee and sank pretty much all I have into this film. Some think I am a little crazy but the more I have discovered the more I have truly been inspired by this project.
I’ll be uploading a short 5 minute preview of my documentary shortly – watch this space!
Where I am right now
I am currently in negotiation with a major broadcaster (C4) who is interested in the project. I really want to get this film out to as bigger audience as possible so I am looking to negotiate with other interested parties (Yet to be determined).
Skills and experience
I studied film at the NFTS and I have been involved in the production of a few short films but this is the first major project I have taken on myself.
I have faced many challenges with this film and I am currently struggling with:
- The promotional aspects (Due to lack of experience) particularly on the web?
- Affording access to a top notch professional editing suite
- Further research into some of the deeper historical aspects of the film
I am working with a few other people who are passionate about the subject matter but they are committed to full time jobs and utilising their time regularly is a challenge.
Looking for People
Do any of these people sound like you?
I am looking for someone who can provide access to a broadcast quality editing suite to produce the final version of my film. I know it a big ask?
I am looking for someone who has good web knowledge and help me either develop a website for my film or help me promote it via social media... and create a bit of a storm?
I really need a good researcher who can validate certain key aspects of the film.
Incentives are being offered if you get involved with this project.
- I will officially credit you in my film
- I am happy to discuss a cut of any future royalties
- Obviously, you will come to the Cannes film festival when we pick up our awards!
