My name is Kyle Olson and I am the producer and director of a new documentary entitled, THE LAST SIGNAL. I've been working as a Hollywood reality show producer for almost 10 years. This is my second documentary, and my biggest to date.
The Last Signal is a film about two WWII veterans who reunited 70 years after their maiden voyage on LST-218. It's a heartwarming story that I cannot wait to bring to the silver screen. However, I need help to get it there.
We need finishing funds for this film. Everything is shot and "in the can", but I'm looking for a few thousand to get this piece edited. I will likely also need a few more thousand to film pickups and close up the film in distribution. In all honesty, for a project like this, I truly believe we are asking for "pennies". Nothing crazy - $10,000 - 20,000 at most will finish everything up. We have an incredible story which should make finding money easier.
I'm looking for someone who can help us get the money we need to finish this film and bring it across the finish line. I'm open to how we find money; so long as it is NOT a Kickstarter campaign. I know there are plenty of other ways to find money - whether it's grants, fundraisers, finding business partners, etc....but I just don't know where to start or look. I really need help. This is a huge project that has incredible potential.
I want to make this worth your time. But I also need to find someone who I can work with that understands that I have no money, which is why I'm on the hunt for funds to finish this film. Let's find a way we can work together and everyone wins. I promise I will make a deal we can both be happy with. (There's even a producer credit involved if you can help us out!)
This isn't just a WWII story; it's a humanities story. Check out my extended trailer of the documentary, which will give you a little more information about my project: https://vimeo.com/153852837 (password: Veterans)
Let me know why YOU would be the right fit for this and what you can help bring to this project. I eagerly look forward to reading your replies.
