Jerry Movie Financing Tips

Jerry Movie Film Financing tips tells us how they raised film financing, what camera they used to save big and how to negotiate services for free. Jerry was made on a $15,000 budget with money we raised ourselves. Most of the budget went toward purchasing equipment. Everyone worked for free and we used locations we could also get for free. The crew was a small team of 5-6 people and everyone wore multiple hats. We shot the film on the Canon 7D DSLR camera and used primarily natural light. 

Making Jerry The Movie

One of the most cost effective moves we made was to purchase rechargeable AA batteries to use with our sound equipment (2 Zoom H4Ns with a lavalier kit and boom mic), which saved us quite a bit of money. We edited the movie using Final Cut X which was a wonderful tool for us and allowed us to collaborate very effectively (4 people were editing the movie and we were often sharing our project files with each other for notes, etc).

About Jerry Movie Trailer

Jerry is a dramedy about a guy named, you guessed it, Jerry, who is housesitting for a friend in Las Vegas for the summer. He meets a funny kid named Steven who really wants to help him improve his skills at getting girls. Together they meet Rachel in the park who is walking her cat on a leash and though Steven's wingman skills are replete with awkwardness, Jerry scores a date.

It's a busy summer for Jerry; red rock hiking with Rachel, a night shift at a law office & fixing potty mouth Steven's broken bike. But, all summers must come to an end. Will Jerry choose his new life in Vegas or will he drive back to his old one?

Jerry is a heartfelt movie with a foul mouth and will be available for Digital Download & Streaming October 1, 2014 exclusively at

Coming Through the Rye

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. The bargain of my career!

Finished my deck on Friday. Got it into a few potential investor’s hands over the weekend, and by Monday had 3 out of the 10 available memberships spoken for at $160K each. The revenue projections and film comparable services by NASH, along with the business plan and pitch deck templates were instrumental in presenting the project in such a way that financially minded potential investors could understand the movie business, the market and how my project could possibly give them a substantial ROI.

Melissa was amazing throughout the entire process. Always there to answer any questions. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Can’t thank you enough. Best money I’ve ever spent.
