 MADRAS, OR
A Central Oregon youth's DREAM of filmmaking and working with industry pros!
Tifany Figueroa and her crew are amateur filmmakers from Madras, OR who entered a short film called "AMATEURS" and won Best Director Award in the 2016 Central Oregon Film Festival.  COFF is looking for people to help fund the prize (a film & distribution contract with local production company, Blue Retina Entertainment Co. in association with Frenzie Films) with a donation of any amount for these first-time filmmakers.

We need to raise $5,000 to cover the cost of the film to be produced locally. The money raised will be used for filming, crew, equipment rental, pro production assistance for the amateur film crew, marketing, and entry fees for film festivals throughout the northwest. Frenzie Films will be submitting Tifany's low-budget film to various production & distribution companies as well. (It COULD get picked up by a big company, folks!!!)

2016 COFF was held at the Madras Performing Arts Center in Madras, Oregon on SAT, May 21st. See www.centraloregonshowcase.com for info.
Our goal of $5,440 is to cover production costs of $5,000 & GoFundMe's 8% total charge ($440).

Central Oregon Showcase and COFF are excited about the incredible opportunity presented to these teenage filmmakers. We would like to see amazing local talent such as Tifany rewarded for extraordinary effort... and we thank all the people who choose to become involved in inspiring our Central Oregon teens to become involved in the arts!
