Getting a film funded can take a long time and I’ve had a couple of false starts. I wrote a funding proposal around this time last year. Initial positive responses turned into money not being available for a year or more or requests to make my proposal sound more bio-scientific. In a way this has suited me as I’ve been on a bit of a journey since I got rid of the virus and I my head hasn’t been in the right place to make a film.
After the new year I decided that I needed to pull my finger out. I re-did the promo and resent funding applications. On Friday I got some positive feedback. The Is and Ts still need to be dotted and crossed, but it looks like I’m going to have enough money to make the next part of the film.
I’ve got two other applications I’m waiting on right now too, so fingers crossed for them.
