Jerry Movie Trailer
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.
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 DreamStreetLimited.com.

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.
