We STILL need your support!
5 MONTHS AGO
Thank you to all those have donated to the project thus far – we are truly humbled by your support!
We have surpassed our base target of $4,000 and are striving to reach $10,000 (250%) so we can further our resources to realise this ambitious story.
Your donations will be put to excellent use and afford us the opportunity to hire specialist crew members and production costs needed to achieve a story with this scope – including a dedicated costume designer, a special effects make-up person and an experienced stunt coordinator to plan and supervise the safe execution of pivotal action scenes within the drama.
As our fundraising efforts continue, we are now firmly in the pre-production stages. This week, we are busy casting the supporting roles – while our leading man Villa Junior Lemanu hits the gym and dance studio to rehearse with choreographer Tony Pati.
Planning for the visual look of the film is also underway with cinematographer Ian McCarroll and art directors Vea Mafile’o and Emily Mafile’o. We have assembled a talented team to help us bring the ‘world’ and characters to life and we’re working hard to produce a film which can succeed on the international festival circuit - a finished product to make our community and supporters proud.
Please keep donating and help us reach our new target - we are very grateful for any donation, large or small.
Thank you for taking an interest in "My Friend Michael Jones" – any support you can give is greatly appreciated!
Eldon, Alex, Ian and Samson
