The Crowdfunders: Mutt

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!

Mutt

Written and Directed by Samuel Galloway
Produced by Erinn Stevenson

Set in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, the film follows Odette Harker as she comes to terms with her first pregnancy. She had a rough upbringing, and she now looks to her conservative in-laws for guidance on parenting. But when a robbery occurs at the families building company, the couple’s dog Barney goes missing as well. Dog fighting is prominent in the area, so Odette secretly goes against the families wishes, to infiltrate the dangerous underground world to save her dog from a torturous death.

Target: $12,000

How the funds will be used:
The budget will cover the absolute basics to pull off this project, but they go a long long way. With everything running smoothly, the crew are hoping to be attending Le Marché du Film, the film market at the Cannes film festival in May, with a cut of the film to pitch to distributors and sales agents.

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.
