Aquatic Rehab Spearfishing Editing Suite Needed

Project 2019-07-08 15:23:58 +1200

Hey crew I figure it is about time to ask for some help with crowd funding so I can begin to create videos again. 

As most of you are aware after recent posts I have been living with a major depressive disorder for a decade plus and this has severely impacted my ability to hold any sort of career. In addition to this I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia which is essentially chronic pain, depression, IBS, brain fog and fatigue all balled into one. Having young ones to feed and just staying afloat financially makes life difficult when trying to work on solutions for the hollowness, fatigue, pain etc that come with these issues.

After spending a few weeks with different kinds of treatments I have the urge to create again and have a lot of compiled footage. The issue being my editing computer is a decade old and can not render or edit my existing footage anymore - it can crash up to five times while making a short 1 minute instagram clip so I do not want to tackle longer episodes with it. Also my only good camera that can film in front of the green screen has stopped working on me left me unable to film voice over or edit any footage. 

As I dislike asking for funding I originally made the choice to wait until my situation changes until I start editing video again, however it's a clear realisation that any income I get in the future needs to be prioritised towards living and health costs.

Any support is greatly appreciated so I can focus some of my attention back into something creative. 

Thanks,

Luke - Aquatic Rehab Spearfishing

Hey guys we have just hit the goal in 24 hours so thanks to everyone that is getting involved. I am not going to let the campaign drag on for a month now that we have hit it so I have asked pledgeme to reduce the campaign to one week. 

Anyone who has chosen a reward - apparently I am emailed your details within three buisness days of the campaign closing. Once I have your details I will begin to organise rewards. Remember I will be needing shirt sizes! 

Thanks guys.
