I'm a young, aspiring filmmaker. Well, kinda.
I want to have a career in special effects and propmaking for films, and most of all, this project would be a way to practice in propmaking and electronic work.
My goal is to make a very realistic looking, well made Proton Pack from Ghostbusters, making as much of it as possible without buying pre-made parts online. The image above is of one I attempted last year. My reason for making making the proton pack is because it is an all encompassing project. So many different materials are needed, such as wood, metal, plastic, and It will help me practice basic electronic work.
Unfortunately, my current job isn't giving me the hours I'd need to make enough money to complete this project while also being able to pay for gas, school expenses, etc. I'm hoping if it's good enough, I can use it as an example of my work, which may help me get a job for a special effects company.
After I complete funding, I will make updates here showing in progress images, as well as on my facebook. I may also make a YouTube channel with production video and photos.
Any amount is appreciated, and after you donate, please consider sharing this with anyone you know who may be interested!
