The Cat Scratch dance is a short film/music video (think Michael Jackson's "Thriller.") The story centers around our young hero, "DK", who is hopelessly in love with a beautiful barista. Finally fed up with his inability to talk to her, he confides his weakness in a friend who refers him to an ancient Kung Fu hermit named "Mao" who possesses what he calls "The Ultimate Technique for Wooing All Women." DK is then unwillingly forced into harsh and merciless training in order to master this mysterious technique... known as 'The Cat Scratch Dance.'
Our story: We are three filmmakers and comedians who have produced a number of very popular sketches on youtube. This has given us an audience and a platform to deliver higher quality content to our fans, and begin delivering highly produced, story driven music video short films, and eventually, feature films. The Cat Scratch Dance is our first big attempt at this and we have financed it entirely so far out of our own pockets, and from the generous contributions of friends and family. Our budget requirements are very minimal to achieve the maximum impact this story will have; however, it is impossible to reach that goal of producing a high quality story such as this through charity and our combined income alone. Over the last year, we have met with numerous producers who have agreed to help for the sake advertisement alone, but who didn't deliver on any promises and ultimately kept The Cat Scratch Dance in limbo. What we need is immediate, decisive action, to bring this work to life.
Below is our trailer/promo that we used in order to raise a fifth of our projected budget on indiegogo.com. This will offer more insight into who we are, and how much work we have already put into this project. From HUNDREDS of storyboards drawn to months producing and mixing the song to ordering custom wardrobe from China, we are COMMITTED to bring this work to life. We have a full plan in place and can discuss everything openly, that is not explained in this trailer/promo:

Promote YOUR Story, Business, Film on FilmProposals
Do you have some great indie filmmaker tips to share with other aspiring or current filmmakers?

Here is a great opportunity to first, pay it forward, and then promote your projects, products and services.
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.
