Now Fundraising: House Music Movie – A Documentary

Fundraising via Rucket Hub, the documentary House Music Movie is directed by Muema; who is the Founder of BounceFM.Com, a blog that supports house music. The feature length independent documentary film about house music, dance and global pop culture with a funding goal of $115,000, has been in the works for the last two years. Muema hopes the campaign funds will cover archival footage and final editing/post-production costs in time for a 2012 festival premiere.

Check out the interview with filmmaker Muema in this NY Timeout Interview. Watch the fundraising project video below the following campaign site information:

The Film

House Music Movie (working title) is a feature length independent documentary film about house music, dance and global pop culture. DJ’s, producers, remixers, dancers and fans discuss their careers and celebrity in this behind-the-scenes look at the house music industry.  Along with footage of house music in action, the film also captures candid conversations about house (also called electronic dance music) with authors, artists, club owners and cultural experts.

The Funding

This current $115,000 goal will get us through the crucial phase of finishing a rough cut with archival footage.  We have identified the archival footage we require to tell this story. We need approximately 15 to 18 minutes of this footage in order to tell the story accurately.

Any additional funding we receive over our $115,000 goal will go to additional post production expenses (Sound design, color correction, title and ending credit sequences), a robust film festival submission release and additional marketing for the film.

Join us on this journey. 

With your continued contributions, we can reach the $115,000 mark and acquire the footage we need!

2. It’s an All & More mechanism: if we don’t reach our financial goal, we get to keep whatever was pledged. If we do reach it, we’ll continue to raise as much as we can before the  days are over.
