Celebrate Life Film-Making Crowdfunder

Donation protected
Celebrate Life CIC is raising £10,000 to cover: - 2 animation videos, - 3 Interview videos, - 3 Music and Spoken Word videos.
We are once again turning to our amazing community, near and far, to support the production of our next batch of films.

Why we are Crowdfunding:
To find funding for independent filmmaking is always a challenge. Corporate sponsors often have their own agenda and funds come with strings attached. It's very important to us that we can tell the stories as they need to be told. Power to Change came about through the generous support of crowd-funders and we are hugely grateful for the freedom this allowed us while making the film.
This is why we have opted for crowdfunding for a second time.

Why are our costs so low?:
Because we work to a tight budget with many people choosing to volunteer their time or offering skills for a reduced fee.

About us:
Celebrate Life CIC is a non-profit Community Interest Company based in London. We run workshops and events using short films and video clips to help convey the messages and stories being shared.
Many of these clips are shown in prisons throughout the UK, but they are also used in schools, community centres and made available for the wider public online.

What we want to do:
We would like to continue with a series of videos for the workshops we run and in particular want to fund:
  • Animation videos: Bringing timeless wisdom into the present. We're very proud of the 5 videos we have completed so far and would like to keep increasing the series. The next animation video we are commissioning is the story of the Archer, or 'Splitting the Arrow'. The cost of animating this video is £2500, and work has already begun. You can see our animation videos here
  • 'What is' Series: We would like to continue on the theme of our enormously popular 'What is Hope' video. Next in the series is: What is Love, What is Peace, and What is Freedom. These work very well in the workshops which are themed along topics. Each video costs approximately £1000. 'What is Hope?' The first in the series
  • Music and Spoken Word: These powerful videos are used in our workshops with great impact. Depending on the costs of footage and music they cost between £500 - £1000 per video.

Donate or Sponsor
If you would like to sponsor a specific video please get in touch, or state it in your message when you donate.
For donations over £100 we would love to credit you or your company at the end of the video, and will get in touch with you to ask permission first.
