We know what you’re thinking, “how can I get involved with this film?” To answer that question, you can help out with small donations to help make this film the best it can be. While we have everyone already ready to jump on ship and film tomorrow we need funding for the final touches to take this film to new heights. Our locations for shooting do not come free and while we already have them chosen we need backing to use the spaces. Furthermore, filming permits (we want to do this legally) and supplies for feeding our cast and crew on set to keep production going. As our location is a bit off the beaten path some travel expenses may be needed to get our cast and crew on location.
While we do have the majority of our funding secured, every little bit helps. Each of you out there can contribute to making this the best Steampunk movie ever.
Each of these items will be given out in as timely a manner as possible. Many of them won’t be available until after filming is complete, like the “Early DVD\BluRay\Digital copy,” while others will be available immediately, like the “Supporters-only Group.”
You are the Gears which will help keep the machine going. Every cog and gear, regardless of size, helps the engine to run smoothly. For this donation, you will receive a personal "Thank You" on our Social Media Pages and your name will be listed in the "Special Thanks" Section of the Credits of our film.
At this level of donation, you will receive a full size (24x36 inch) copy of the official movie poster. There are likely to be multiple versions of this as our creative artists continue to collaborate. You will have your choice of which one you'd like.
You will receive a copy of the movie soundtrack, composed by Chad Canfield (Kenebula Records). You will receive this as both a CD and a digital download.
For those of you that want a higher level of involvement, we've got a supporters-only group on social mediawhere we will chat with you, share updates, and get to know each of you. This is a true backstage experience where you get to have regular interactions with cast and crew. You will also receive regular newsletter updates via email about how the production is going. As a bonus, your first issue of the newsletter will include a copy of one of our action sequences from the script.
Early DVD\BluRay\Digital copy
Not only will you get the DVD/BluRay and a digital copy of the movie before it hits stores, but your name will appear in the credits to the film as we thank those who helped make this movie possible.
Attend an Advanced Screening
We will be having multiple advanced screening of this film in different parts of the United States. Here's your chance to secure a ticket for you and a friend to come and see the movie in theatres before everyone else. There will be cast and\or crew attending with you. The specific individuals will depend on where the screening is being done. You will be responsible for transportation to the screening, but you will be able to select from multiple locations to find the one closest to you.
Showcase your Steam
Have you spent years putting together the ultimate steampunk persona? Here's your chance to showcase it on a global scale. You will get to be an extra in the film for at least one scene. If you have a steampunk costume/persona, you may even be able to wear that outfit on set if approved for that scene. You will be responsible for getting to the site of filming, but we will give you ample notice to be able to make it to the set on that day. This is the ultimate behind-the-scenes experience. You'll be bumping shoulders with our actors and crew. You'll work closely with our director and wardrobe department to make sure you fit into the scene as the persona you've spent years creating. Or, if you're new to the scene, we will help you build your very own steampunk self.
A Portrait is Worth 1000 Words
Our concept artist/storyboard artist will draw you in your favorite steampunk garb. This will be a highly detailed color portrait. We'll need you to send a picture of you wearing the outfit you'd like the portrait of, or a picture of the outfit you'd like your portrait to be wearing. The turn-around on these drawings will depend on the work load of our artist, but we'll get it to you as soon as we possibly can. With this portrait, you will receive a digital scan of it so you can print as many as you'd like in whatever sizes you prefer.
Image is Everything
Now you've seen Steampunk, and you want to get involved. There are so many great outfits out there and they're not cheap to make. Here's your chance to join the community at a sprint. With the numerous pieces of surplus outfits and props that will be left over after filming, our sardrobe department will work with you to make a custom, movie quality, steampunk outfit for your next con or invasion. This is great if you're just getting started, or if you just want to add some variety to your persona.
