It’s still possible to donate to Lost Division!

With just over a week to go before shooting the rest of Lost Division, it is time for me to ask for your help again, so that we may be able to:

  • Process and transfer our Super-16mm film footage.
  • Pay for sound design studio time and labor.
  • Pay for the creation of the soundtrack (studio time and labor).
  • Cover various legal fees, promotional costs, the output of the finished product for various screenings and releases, and start submitting to the big festivals.

My goal is to raise a minimum of $8500, which is a very modest amount considering all of the above factors.

Luckily, I have once again joined forces with Portland’s Hollywood Theatre, a 501(c)3 non-profit. This means that all donations to Lost Division are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Donations can be made online by following the link, or sending a check directly to the Hollywood Theatre at:

1827 NE 44th Ave, Suite 130
Portland, OR 97213

Please make checks payable to “the Hollywood Theatre”, and specify, “for Lost Division” in a note and in the memo line on the check.

Lost Division has been made possible thanks to the Oregon Media Arts Fellowship, the RACC project grant, the RACC Innovation Award, and your tax-deductible donations.

Thank you so much for your continued support!!

Status update and a plea for help

Posted in Uncategorized by epdavee on June 18, 2010

I’m happy to report that editing is going well and after 6 months, finally nearing completion. Rough cuts are looking good! The next step is for the composition and recording of the soundtrack and the final sound mix. If all goes well, I hope to be finished in August. At that time we will likely have a big showing at the Hollywood theater, and send off our submission to Sundance just in time for their deadline. I will make an official trailer soon, which I will post here.

I’m also happy to report that I was the winner of the Portland STOCK dinner grant for this month. The dinner netted $605 for the project. Thanks to everyone who voted for me and to all the organizers, artists, and attendees. I’m very grateful.

I am currently seeking additional “Executive Producers” for the project. Anyone who donates over $1000 to the project can be listed in the opening credits as an Executive Producer and be invited to all parties and premiers associated with the film.

It’s a great relief to have all the film finally processed and digitized.  It was a big undertaking to raise the funds necessary to do that. I am eternally grateful to all my friends and family who donated their time and money to make it happen. To receive that kind of support was truly touching. I could not have come this far on this nearly impossible project without it. For this reason, I absolutely would not consider seeking another penny from those same sources.  It is my sincere hope that someone out there who is in a position to help will read this  and consider providing assistance. If you are a lover and supporter of independent film, or just a kindhearted person willing to help someone in a desperate situation, please consider lending your support.

As of this date, the current needs for the completion of the film are about $5500. A small amount by some standards, but an extremely daunting challenge to someone in my current position. I feel like I’ve exhausted all fund raising possibilities. $55oo is simply the remaining amount needed for costs associated with post production sound and soundtrack work. This does not include the final “color” correcting, Film Festival submission expenses, or the ongoing monthly payments towards the massive credit card debt already accrued. It is simply the minimum needed to finish the film. If you or someone you know are in a position to help, please consider doing so today. Donation information to the right of this page is still correct and current. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Production has begun!
We are, however, on track to run out of money soon. Please spread the word that we are still very much in need of additional donations to finish this project. A link to make a tax-deductible contribution is to the right.
Enjoy these production stills taken by Destiny Lane and Matthew King.
