The Hardcosts of filmmaking

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 1:24 PM

The crowdfunding continues on the local film front.

While Creep! prepares to raise a little more post-production money via this Friday's Hootenanny for the Arts, a new short project seeks "initial funding to secure talent, locations and equipment."

The film's called Hardcosts, and you can view its clever Indiegogo pitch here:

You can also track the film's progress via Twitter and Facebook.

As the video pitch mentioned, filmmaker Aaron Hartshorn will be working with many of the same folks who assisted on Creep!, including Pete Schuermann, who'll offer project supervision.

The film will also be shot on Schuermann's same Scarlett RED camera.

For this initial round of fundraising, it's only seeking $1,500, with another more formal round coming sometime around March, says Hartshorn.

Here's the quick summary, current budget explanation and some poster art:

Hardcosts is a dark comedy about Dustin. Dustin is a timid young man who just found the love of his life. The only problem is her psychopath of a father. Struggling with this, Dustin has to ask him how far he really will go for love ...

In order to get this film off the ground we need initial funding to secure talent, locations and equipment. Every penny raised from this first fundraiser will go towards these costs. And any left over funds will go straight to other costs of the film (wardrobe, food and transportation costs).

If you contribute to the film, you will be able to be apart of the rapidly growing film community in Colorado springs. Any contribution you make will truly have a huge impact — for this is only the first of many projects. That said, it's so important that this project succeeds for that reason.
