Eulogy – A Short Film: Kickstarter campaign

Greetings and thank you for taking the time to read about our film.  We are trying to raise $5000 in closing money to complete Eulogy.  We filmed Eulogy last year and after finishing our rough cut, we entered the film into some local festivals here in New York.  We were nominated for, and won “best ensemble cast” at the 2015 Queens World Film Festival.  At that time we realized we wanted to complete the film with the same integrity that we began with.  The $5000 will allow us to go in for: final editing, ADR, additional scoring, sound mixing, and color correction.  Please click on the video to hear from writer/director Don Capria and get a chance to see a sneak peek at one of the finished scenes from the film.  We thank you for reading and humbly ask for your donation towards our completion.  Please feel free to share this page with a friend.  Thank you for your support.
