“We are launching a campaign to fund equipment for young people. The still is from Summer School in 2019, and we are now looking forward to planning for 2021, with 30+ young people from 16 to 19 taking part over two weeks, and making two films, one a drama and also a behind the scenes film during that time. Please help us by donating what you can afford at https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/gmac-needs-your-help. Don’t forget that if you are a UK Taxpayer, and sign up for Gift Aid the Government contributes an extra 25% to the cause”
Please help us support the next generation of content creators and young film makers
At GMAC Film, for the last 38 years we have and continue to promote equality of opportunity for all; inclusive of ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation, gender, age and disability. We provide open access for all to acquire the skills, knowledge, resources and confidence to realise their ambitions in film and in the creative industries.
Why a Crowdfunder?
We are in need of help to buy some new film equipment for the young people we support. All of our camera equipment is now over ten years old – in digital equipment terms – antiques! We need to raise £25,000 to help us buy cameras, lenses, sound and editing equipment and lights. Each Black Magic Camera costs £920 and a set of lenses is £880 – it adds up very quickly.
What’s in it for you?
Aside from supporting young people in what we hope are their first steps in a rewarding career, we’ll be thanking all of our supporters via a physical donor wall in our reception. For amounts over £500 we will hold a thank you evening to show some of the films made by our young people.
If you’re a business, we have a range of other sponsorship opportunities on our website and we have the possibility of applying for match funding through Arts & Business Scotland for business sponsors
Every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much.
