Danger Word moves fundraising to Indiegogo

We’re more than halfway there!

Since March, more than 200 contributors have visited this site to give between $1 and $1,000 toward the filming of Danger Word, which was shot over Memorial Day weekend (2013).  Primarily using Facebook and social media, we pulled off a tiny miracle through “community funding”–thanks to you!

Now we’ve moved our fundraising effort to the crowd funding platform Indiegogo for Phase II: post-production.  That’s the phase where we improve the images and sound to create a film that can be exhibited in the company of quality films.  (Who knows? Maybe even at Sundance!)  Right now, all we have is raw footage of great performances from our stars Frankie Faison and Saoirse Scott.

Technical experts will take Danger Word the rest of the way.

Check out our short Indiegogo pitch (and a sneak peek at the trailer!):

PLEASE SHARE our easy-to-remember Indiegogo fundraising page: www.dangerword.com

Also check out Tananarive Due’s recent post in The Grio about why we decided to make Danger Word ourselves: “Great pitch! But do the characters have to be black?” 

Even if you can’t give now, or have already given, please SHARE the site with  your friends and family.  Can you help us spread the word about Danger Word?

We will have an exciting new gift to offer soon!  And we have added a free PDF of the screenplay for contributors who give $25 or more.

The site will also soon expand to offer a NEWS & PRESS page:  Danger Word has been covered in Shadow and Act, The Huffington Post, MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” and The Grio

Thank you for helping us make the dream real!
