The Crowdfunders: Sleepwalking

As a non-profit website dedicated to the support and promotion of Australian made films, Cinema Australia rarely gets the opportunity to throw cash at crowdfunding projects. Trust us, if we had the money we’d be executive producers on almost every new Australian film calling for supporters through the myriad of crowdfunding platforms available on the interwebs.

That’s why we’ve launched this feature – The Crowdfunders – which will shamelessly plug projects calling for your dollar. It’s just another way for us to do what we love doing most – supporting Aussie cinema!

Here’s our latest plug…


Written and Directed by Melissa Anastasi
Produced by Eva Di Blasio
Starring Jeremy Lindsay Taylor, Ned Morgan and Stephanie King

Sleepwalking is a short film about an isolated religious family as seen from the point of view of a young boy Phoenix, whose loyalities are torn between his fanatical stepfather, and his sleepwalking mother who wants to escape and return to their old lives.

How the funds will be used:
– Filming of key pickup shots
– Editing Expenses
– Sound Design and mix
– Foley Recording
– ADR (Additional Dialogue Record)
– Music
– Grade and Online
– Deliverables

PLEASE NOTE: Not all crowdfunding projects are successful and just because a project has reached it’s target, it doesn’t guarantee the film will be made, or that you’ll receive any reward or compensation for your donation. So in saying that, Cinema Australia takes no responsibility for any wrongdoing on the fundraiser’s behalf.
