Bingo: A Short Film

A group of basically broke students set out to make a short film. The film is called Bingo. The story revolves around a group of retirees stealing from the corrupt owner of a bingo hall. Obstacles spring up for our heroes and they must overcome them...With your help!


Making a film is expensive. A normal short film can cost $10,000 or more. We're a thrifty bunch and have called in a lot of favors from friends and enthusiastic volunteers. Yet, even still, we find ourselves needing to pay for a lot. Donations will go towards paying for things like transportation, props, costumes, and food. We're shooting very soon and thus far we've paved our own way, but could use any help we can get as soon as we can get it.

Your support for our film will mean the world to us. This is our final project for our college careers at UNM in the Interdisciplinary Film and Digital Media department. This is the product of hundreds of hours of brainstorming, writing scripts, making calls, and more, from all of us. To say the least, this is our baby! All of us have poured a lot into the film to make something we can be proud of and if you choose to help us we can make it even better. Plus if you donate, you can say you were a producer on a film. As we move forward with the film, we'll be updating the page with pictures and videos of us making the film, so stay tuned!
