I've run my own small production company for the past ten years as Just Do It Productions. During this time I sourced funding from the National Arts Council to produce six of my plays which I then took around to the National Arts Festival and around the country. I also wrote the screenplay for the international feature film, one of the highest budget films made in South Africa, White Lion. I was supervising producer for two short films as well and earned my film producing stripes in this way.
After trying to raise funds for this film which is very close to my heart, and not succeeding, I went to a talk by Peter Broderick at the Durban Film Mart in 2011, and decided to launch crowd-sourcing fund on Indiegogo.com
We have just started this campaign and I've been joined by producer of Award-Winning films, Magda M. Olchawska whose production company Mayan Films is based in London.
We aim to raise funds to make A Shot at the Big Time an internationally successful film.
