That's easy, what's harder is naming the 1,000 different films that didn't make it huge, even when the filmmakers thought they were going to go far... last year.

That's because you never hear about the failures, only the biggest successes.

Oh, wait, did I say 1,000? Actually it's more like double that entered into Sundance last year alone. And those are just the ones that actually managed to finish their film.

So did everyone making every one of the thousands of films I mentioned above. So does everyone on this forum who's struggling to make their own film. Having 'heart' isn't a reason to donate to you, it's a reason for you to attempt making a film.

If you want to get other people to donate, you're going to need more. You need to figure out what it is that will make people identify, and want to be identified, with your film.

Not good enough. Many filmmakers have heart yet YOU do not donate to
them. You have not made a single contribution to any filmmaker who
has heart and deeply believes in their movie. Why is that?

And so far none of your friends or family have donated to your project.
Why is that?

Quadruple, and then some: http://www.indietalk.com/showthread....202#post313202

And that's just the fool-hearty people brazen enough to THINK they could submit to Sundance.
Don't forget all the filmmakers that KNOW their film genré won't really fit Sundance's, or SXSW, or other big film fest's criteria.

I'd take a wild guess that each year at least 15,000 to 30,000 feature length films reach a final edit, (God only knows how many crash and burn during production; a heinous number, I'm sure) never to be seen by any more than a few dozen people, some even by a couple hundred, even fewer by more than a thousand people.

Yep, the reality is making a film - as hard as it is - isn't the hard part. Finding your audience is the hard part.

This seperates you from everyone else?

Even if it does it's not going to separate everyone else's money from their wallets.

I've donated to many other projects, all the actors will work for free but I want to take care of them. You might never understand what I see, but one day you will.

You're doing it all wrong... first you have to make something then show it to people so they see what you're capable of... then ask for money!

No one disputes you want to take care of them, doesn't everyone?

He can we judge you based on your imagination maybe you should film one scene and then show us a taster..

Do you mind if I ask him?
