LTB: Love Trust & Betrayal is a short film that I did for a film festival that I didn't. I originally did everything from shooting, sound, lighting, editing, color, literally everything to finish this film and it turned out good for only doing it within a week. However, with the lack of funding I barely had any help with this project which could have been a lot better. Now since that is done, I want to turn the short film into a feature film to make it more attractive to watch while still getting the message of the importance of HIV. I feel that not a big enough audience was able to watch something that had a message so strong. What I decided was to approach HIV a little different than films that I have seen in the past. Instead of just listening to the message I decided to portray as close as possible situations that actually go on with people.
I am planning on shooting the feature film within three weeks, the last week of July and first two weeks of August. Right now the feature is still in pre production, but it is similar to the short film, just a more interesting story and more actors.
I need help funding so that I can have access to rental equipment, mainly audio and lighting kits, good actors, and also food that is needed during the shoot.
What is planned for this film is to become a feature film. I plan on sending it to all major film festivals (of course the festivals cost). I will be marketing the film for the next year with festivals while in the mean time I will try to work on getting it distributed to Netflix, Hulu, and on cable TV.
