Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts Crowdfunding Campaign Week #03

Dear everyone,

I’m here, again, to tell you about my quest for a successful crowdfunding campaign.

I thought I would start this post by writing about the worst week we’ve had so far, but…

We’ve just received a huge donation from an angel who would like to remain anonymous and our budget has basically doubled…

That’s right: a quarter of the film has been funded!

I mean, I wanted to talk about crowdfunding-related anxiety and depression, but…

F**k that!

I’m going to celebrate.

By the way, a reminder: Destruction, a film/music video directed by M.A.K and shot/edited by John D Breen (C-47) for the crowdfunding campaign of Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts is now on YouTube, and it looks amazing!

It also features a song by the Irish band Junk Drawer so, if you like the Irish Indie music scene, you should definitely check it out.

Take Care,

Gavino

Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts Crowdfunding Campaign Week #01

Dear everyone,

The first week of the crowdfunding campaign of Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts is over.

It was a very intense week, if you ask me, and I feel pretty tired, more than I should be, probably. It’s common for people who do something for the first time to waste too much energy, I guess.

Anyway, it was also a very rewarding week: we reached the 16% of our goal, and even if that doesn’t sound like a lot, statistically, 4 in 5 campaigns that have reached that percentage on the first week succeed.

There’s hope!

Of course, the real campaign starts now: there is no time to rest!

I’d like to thank everyone who spent a bit of his/her time/money to contribute to Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts. I’m really, really, really thankful!

(By the way, I’ll start sending the perks next week, so you’ll receive them pretty soon!)

And if you haven’t visited the Indiegogo page of the campaign, just go to...

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/agalmatophilia-a-tragedy-in-three-acts/x/16999351#/

Of course, when you’re there, select a perk and share! Every kind of contribution can make the difference, believe me.

Now it’s time for me to go to the screening of Incantations at The International Bar in Dublin. It was organised by the C-47 team (https://m.facebook.com/CollectiveFourtySeven/), the same fantastic guys that made Creation, the first video of a trilogy inspired by Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts.

If you haven’t seen it:

Take care,

Random Thoughts On Introducing Lilith #01

Introducing Lilith...

Ah, there’s so much I could say about that, so I’ll start with a very simple introduction:

If you haven’t read my last post, it’s important for you to know that I’m talking about a short film I directed a couple of years ago (you can find it on this website and on YouTube: if you have time, check it out and tell me what you think of it!). Although it’s the most incomplete of all my works, it’s also among the most important ones.

Essentially, Introducing Lilith is the weird teaser trailer of a feature film I really (really, really, really) want to produce as soon as possible. Two years ago I thought it would be a good idea to shoot an introduction to the main character of my screenplay: I wanted to show a series of producers a very brief portion of the world I had in my mind in order to, well, make them produce my film. Unfortunately, the short film didn’t really help me (we’ll talk about that in the future), but I’m happy I realised it anyway.

Why? 

Well... When you spend so much time on a screenplay, you’ve got an entire detailed film in your head, an entire world to explore, and it’s fantastic. The problem is that you don’t know what that world will actually look like when represented in our material dimension, and I can tell you that you would really like to.

Now, Introducing Lilith is for me the first materialisation of the world of Agalmatophilia, which is the feature film I mentioned a few lines above. It’s a sort of faulty materialisation, maybe (there are so many interesting things in Lilith’s studio that can’t be seen, that are not there...), but it exists nonetheless.

In the next few weeks, I will talk about the making of the film, the lessons I learned from the experience and how they’re affecting Agalmatophilia.

 

Thanks for reading!
