Collab Project with Loading Docs
LOADING DOCS is a trailblazing new initiative co-funded by The New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air, and managed by production company Notable Pictures to fund, create and distribute innovative New Zealand documentary shorts.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my page.
Dans is a personal project that I've wanted to make for some years now. It is based on the many stories my grandfather Sol has told me. The tricky part is I need some help from you to fund the film.
As a part of the Loading Docs initiative I need to raise a minimum of $2000. This will help cover sound recording, music and some bare bones animation time. Any money I raise above this amount will allow me to hire some helping hands with the animation and fund the composition of a unique score by, hopefully, one of today’s more exciting musicians.
I'd really appreciate your help in seeing this come to life.
Dans is a sprawling animated documentary based around the storytelling of Sol, an elderly Turkish migrant now living in New Zealand. In this colourful short Sol recounts a treasured memory from his early days as a refugee spent at “The Orange” - a popular dance hall in Auckland.
