UPSTAIRS INFERNO – Gay History Month and Fire Prevention Month

I am incredibly grateful for all the support we’ve received since we first announced this project. Only with the support from people like you, have we gotten as far as we have. Donations to previous campaigns helped us cover final production expenses (including camera, gear and light rentals, a production crew, car rental/gas, travel and lodging). Those donations will also help us cover our post production costs related to color correction and audio mixing.

The remaining balance will also help put a small dent in our expenses to license photos and news footage. (I was shocked to find out that the cost to license newspaper photos range from $250-$375/each and that news footage can cost up to $90/second!!!!!! That adds up very quickly!) This far exceeded my initial estimate.)

**IN THE TIME THAT IT TAKES YOU TO READ THIS SENTENCE,
VIDEO LICENSING FEES WOULD EQUAL $450!!**

WE CANNOT HAVE A HISTORICAL DOCUMENTARY WITHOUT HISTORICAL PHOTOS AND NEWS FOOTAGE!
This is why I am reaching out to you. Believe it or not, licensing for all the photos and news footage comes close to $20,000!!!! I have crunched the numbers every which way and there doesn’t appear to be a good way around it.

I know it’s close to the holidays and money is limited. So rather than launch a campaign for the full $20K, I hope to raise a fraction of the licensing fees. (The arbitrary goal of $7300 = licensing for 4 of the most critical news footage reels.) However, the further we go over our goal, the closer we will be to releasing the film.
