2nd day at Sundace to find investors and producing partners for our film "My America". Even if our budget is less then 10% of most of your usual transformers/superhero, your prequels and sequels and remakes - it is still very hard to get the right investors for a Political Drama inspired from true events like “My America” - against the fact that deals with the very present issues of Immigration, Diversity, and Women Rights.
So far we get a lot of “to soon”, “is gonna be to hard to sale”, “to international, it will be a nightmare to gather the budget”, and my “favorite” “to many character actors in it, some of them I don’t even know who they are”. With all do respect for your “producer title” but if you find these actors and actresses “unknown” maybe you should change professions, because these actors and actresses are the 1st choice in every filmmaker’s mind that want to make a film with complex emotionality and truth.
I understand the fear for being a harder project then usual but that proves once again that there aren't a lot of investors and producers left out there with the cojones and the vision to take on something that is truthful and political, and dares to channel the fundamentals of what’s universally equivalent in all cultures and languages – The right to the Pursuit of Happiness, and acceptance of equal rights for Us All as diverse human beings. Art is our weapon – So as artists its our responsibility to use every weapon in our arsenal and make our voice heard out loud in all our artistic mediums. LOVE UNITES OUR DIVERSITY!
