Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts Crowdfunding Campaign Week #04

Dear everyone,

Probably, you already know that I decided to extend the crowdfunding campaign of Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts (see link below). That means that we’re right in the middle of it: we still have a month to reach our goal.

This would be a good opportunity to talk about my experience as a campaigner, but, frankly, I don’t think that would be very interesting.

From now on, I would actually like to focus my attention on the film itself. After all, that’s the reason behind the campaign, that’s my goal and, definitely, a slice of my own life.

A note: some of you will notice that this post can be found both on Indiegogo (as an update) and on my website (as an Art Journal entry). I’m crossposting, mostly, for the sake of clarity.

That said…

Welcome to the second part of the crowdfunding campaign for my drama/psycho-metaphysical horror/low fantasy/sadomasochistic film (did I ever tell you that I hate the concept of genre? Oh, I’ll write a post about that in the future, and it will be full of anger and contempt!) Agalmatophilia: A Tragedy In Three Acts.

In order to share with you a more detailed introduction to the film, over the next three weeks, I’m going to write some posts concerning three (or four, depending on how you look at the world) of the fundamental aspects of storytelling: characters (who), space & time (where & when), and action (what & how).

(I would like to point out that I’m fully aware I will be abstracting these aspects, or elements, from their context, that is, the narrative. It’s a common thing to do, and I also think it’s a fun way to explore the story.)

Also, I’m proud to announce that C-47, the guys who made Creation and Destruction, the two videos I recently shared with you, are currently organising an event for the film. It’s going to be a cinema-related pub quiz and it will take place here in Dublin (see link below). I’ll share more info pretty soon, so check my updates.

That’s it for now!

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.

Take care,
