Salutations. My name is Kaunda Mabuya. I am a 25 year old freelance filmmaker based in South Africa. I am currently in pre-production of two projects of mine that are in need of a budget. Initially I was planning to pay out of my own pocket from a project I worked on and finished 2 months ago. The employers unfortunately exploited my skills and have not paid me at all for the 8 months work I have done. I can't even afford a lawyer. I have decided to cut my losses but I don't have the financing for the film I want to produce nor can I pay the actors and crew members. There is no way of moving forward with the project without the financing. Unfortunately my family can not help me at all as they are also having a financial crisis which I want to help rectify by seeing these two projects come to light.
The film is called Wrong Direction
Wrong Direction tells the true story of a Christian young man by the name of Vuma, who lost both his father and mother in the same week years ago. His extended family discarded him and blamed him for the deaths of his parents. Vuma's life spirals out of control after both his parents pass away. The lack of family support leads Vuma on a path of isolation and criminal activities he tried to avoid at all costs. Wrong Direction explores a young man pure of heart who's life takes a turn for the worst because of choices made by those around him.
What will the budget be spent on?
Food for crew and cast
Petrol gas for travelling to locations
Led Lighting rental equipment
This is very urgent. Updates on the production will be on my instagram and facebook page.
