“Kickstarter Program Support Key to Film Makers Post Production Success”
NEW YOR CITY, NEW YORK (October 29th, 2010) – John Galt Films has announced the successful wrap of principal photography in Portugal for the latest GT RACER episode: The Algarve Special.
“We have come home with hard drives full of fantastic, cinematic footage, from the Nikon D3Ss that were made available to us by Nikon London, as well as from our on-board cameras. I think this new technology will revolutionize film production. We are very excited and happy that we rushed forward with the shoot in order to catch the magnificent Portimão event. We are very grateful to all our supporters from the racing community that made the shoot possible”, says Alexander Davidis, director and executive producer at John Galt Films, Inc. “We are not home free yet”, continues Davidis. “In seven days, on November 4th at 11:08PM our Kickstarter funding timeframe expires. If we have not reached our goal to raise $6,000 for post-production, this project may not see the light of the day. The way the Kickstarter works, if one does not reach the fundraising goal in the time frame set, no money changes hands and we are literally back to zero.”
More in-car film footage will feature marques such as Bentley (pre-war), Mini, Corvette, Lotus, Ford Galaxy, Cobra, Lola and Williams historic F1. This time, the entire range of cars and characters were covered. John Galt Films has broken new ground in the approach to filmmaking. “If this project is completed successfully it will open doors for many more productions with high production value at astoundingly low production cost. Anybody in the business of cars, racing and filming should want to see this film come to fruition”, shares Davidis.
It is extremely easy to support this project. All you need is a credit card that will not be charged if the project is not financed in full. John Galt Films will be sending out free “pre-release DVDs” of the finished film, signed by the director, to anyone who pledges as little as $15, a 25% discount off the retail price. Basically for $15 you will be preordering the signed “pre-release DVDs” that will become a collector’s item. There are further rewards on the Kickstarter link for those who choose to support the project.
