Block Party Tuesday Documentary

Part of the title sequence
"Block Party Tuesday" is a short, experimental documentary that follows a group of liberal, mostly unemployed 20- and 30-somethings to a summer block party hosted by their historic neighborhood church in Portland, Oregon. Also featuring a mysterious, colorful orb that appears at 02:18!
The Film Financing
I shot and edited "Block Party Tuesday" in a period of approximately 36 hours, using the best equipment I could afford--which isn't much. I regularly work with little to no budget, so I'm used to putting a lot of effort into creating good content. I have not received or applied for any filmmaking grants before because I have not tried to tackle any costly projects yet. In general, I just produce lo-fi videos in the studio that is my bedroom.

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!
This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.
When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.
Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!
I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
