I am so thrilled to announce that Shampagne, s
eason two is getting ready to head into production!!! While the air doesn't yet have that autumnal crisp feel we all know and love here in New York, that will not keep M from fulfilling her self-made destiny.
The driving mission behind Shampagne
has not changed, now more than ever, I am committed to providing a platform for emerging artists of color to do their best work. Providing opportunities for their collective talents to shine and showing the industry that inclusion, in all facets of production, should be the standard, not the exception, are the goals that make this project unstoppable.
But in order to reach that apex, we need YOUR help.
Thanks to our season one donors back in 2015, Shampagne
was able to afford transportation costs, equipment, food for cast and crew, props, costumes, film festival submission fees, lodging and transportation for production members who attended selected film festivals and awards galas.
With a few nominations* (Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Web Series), awards** (Best Web Series, Best Original Sitcom Screenplay) and a streaming service partnership under our belt (SeekaTV), we know that our audience expects nothing less than great this second time around.
This year we are raising funds to cover:
- Camera Equipment
- Sound Equipment
- Lighting Equipment
- Catering to feed cast and crew
- Stipends for our cast
- Fees for key crew members
- Location rental fees for Harlem-based restaraunts
- Stipends for our Fall 2017 interns
- Submission fees for the 2018 film festival circuit
Support our mission.
Support our artists.
