Ladies & Gents,
The upcoming short film ‘Going Through The Motions’ continuing my series of lukewarm Christianity has only ONE WEEK LEFT of raising funds that will make this project possible.
Trying to be more realistic over here, we’ve lowered the budget goal drastically from $3,500 to roughly $1,000-$1,500. There are still quite a bit of prizes available as well for donating as little as $10.
I had a significant update along with this post on our Indiegogo site. Here it is:
(Ryan Walters-) Hey guys! We’re approaching our last week for funding this short film & I have a huge announcement to make regarding our budget/funding.
Many of you who may know me personally know that I am personally raising $5,000 at this time to be a missionary in Seattle, WA at the end of September for a year’s time. Without a doubt, I believe God has led me in my spirit to pursue this life-changing, distant journey. However, He most definitely has called me to a ministry of blogs, photography and videos as well in the past year.
Though my prior videos were laid out on a much more simplistic level of production, my goal for this upcoming project was and is to develop something with a higher quality nature. Something that would capture & grab the attention of viewers at an exponential level. A video with complexity that could awaken believers out of their slumber.
God can use any form of media, whether simplistic or multifaceted, for His glory and to reach His lost children. I’m not going “big” with this film because I want to go “big”. I’m going bigger with this piece because I fully believe as Christians, we should seek no lower than the potential our God-given gifts will allow us to reach. We weren’t created to settle or be mediocre. We were created to trust that through Christ’s power, we can do all things, no matter how big or small (Philippians 4:13).
With all that said, I wanted to clarify where my head is at with this film so there isn’t some blurry idea for others to think up that I am just someone looking to “take advantage” of other’s wealth. I haven’t planned up a scheme to use religion to place your money in my pocket. I’m carrying out the vision(s) God has blessed me with.
I received a halt in my spirit when forming this funding page because i wondered how many would perceive me as greedy or would take it the wrong way that I am asking for $5,000 for one aspect of my life and $3,500 for another. I’d like to bring that $3,500 way down at this time to roughly about $1,000-$1,500. I don’t feel so at peace asking for $8,500 all together.
We only have one week left of funding & I’d like to remind you there are some fun, worthwhile prizes on the right margin for you to look at just for donating as little as $10. My production crew department heads and I are scheduling our days of shooting for mid August. We’re stoked to get this film under way & would love for you to be a part of it.
In His Love,
