Looking for a investment into a new project.

Hello everyone, I am glad to be part of the film Community and the more I continue to write these epic stories makes me want to put it on the tv screen or theaters near you. It all starts from scratch obviously, but I am working hard to find someone who is willing to take a risk with a small amount of money to help support the cast and crew for there time on set, and also for the equipment and CG needed for the show. We want to provide an epic story that makes you wanna keep watching and a exceptional experience with our new show. We are shooting on scheduled days as we move along through time but also looking to pay our team and actors for their talents with GMS.

The show was called The Mage Shorts but went through some big edits and the title was changed to Vexus. This show is about Vexus getting in trouble with the law for and accident, which bring him against the toughest gang in the city, along with balancing his other Lucid life in his dreams where he gains the power of the mage and learns the meaning of a parallel universe. The story does continue into another final season, which would be season 2. We are just judging on what season one will bring back to our investor and to the GMS company.

GMS wants to provide epic films and tv shows that makes you wants more. We take the talents of our team and actors and want to show it on screen big or small, by giving them how much we take there time and talent serious by giving them not only a position that matters on set and infront of the camera but to pay them fairly for there hard work and dedication to the project and company. We aren't huge company, just a few members who started about a year ago in a half ago decided they want to make epic stories and hire creative directors and actors to fulfill the expectation of "we always want to meet the audience expectation from 7 years old to 35 years old." - Founder.

Vexus is our first promise to GMS and we really want to either reach a streaming service and theatrical openings, for our films and tv shows. Vexus season 1 is small cast and crew that some days will be shot guerrilla style shooting. Even though we are telling a fictional fantasy story we want it to feel as real as possible. A risk...right. We are willing to bet on our team and actors to get it right. GMS is hoping someone can take the risk like we are willing to do, to help us bring continuous talent to our company, and movies and tv shows, animation to high platform streaming service.

If there is anyone who is willing to talk about investing for this new tv show please email me at GalaxyMageStudios@gmail.com.
If there's anyone that can point me to the right direction towards a streaming services or anything that can help push this project further along please feel free to email me or message me here.

I read your pitch, I watched your channel. It's always good to see a new filmmaker trying to get off the ground. As far as fundraising, I have some experience, but the news isn't good.

I've been trying to fundraise for my project also. Over 18 months, about 43 people have worked on it, we have a decent webpage, a hundred (literally) finished examples of our work. We have posted here hundreds of times, we have a facebook page, a discord channel, a gofundme page, and often I call people on the phone and pitch it directly. I've got a track record, well over a decade in film, working professionally for household name companies. I looked into grants, loans, benefactors, etc.

Not even 1 single dollar in support for 18 months. I'm going to have to sell everything I own, just to get my channel monetized, or else I can never receive a single paycheck.

Bottom line, you may have a hard time. When I went to look for grants, there was only one filmmaking grant that I found in the US. On that site, the tribecca organization, they were offering grants to help basically anyone except me. You would be eligible. You might try them out.

While I'm too poor to help you out financially, if you're interested I can give you a hand learning some free 3d vfx software that will help you improve your visuals.
 
Film forums and strangers are the last place you'll get money from. Set a modest goal and start an Indiegogo, Go Fund Me, Kickstarter, etc. campaign. Announce it on your social media - Facebook, Instagram, Tic Toc, etc. Most of the money is going to come from family and friends.

I personally don't ask anyone for money, because I know the reality of an investor getting their money back, which is like a 1% chance. I did, however, make a bigfoot movie where other producers raised the money on Indiegogo. I was one of 7 filmmakers chosen, out of 35, and they raised 50K to split between us. What made it work was that the producers made it an event, where they covered the 7 filmmakers' back stories. They got quite a bit of news coverage. All the actors joined a talent pool for the event, so they got a lot of people involved, which means a lot of family and friends of directors, actors, producers, and contributions from people who wanted credit.

Yeah, this is all exactly right.

If you're like me, and you don't have many family and friends, you are in a tough spot. A huge percent of indie film funding worldwide comes directly from these two groups.

Here's the biggest problem by far, making an indie film is not a good business proposal. It's extremely high risk for the investor, as Scoopicman mentioned, over 100 to 1 against them recovering the money in most cases. You would need an insane possible return to justify that risk, and it's just not realistic for a small indie film to make back dozens of times it's budget.

What you should be looking for is someone who wants to help you, and isn't that concerned about returns. This is why most investors are friends and family. The real problem is, that once you get experienced enough to know that almost all indie films loose everything, you won't want to ask your friends and family for investment, because you know they are likely to loose it.

Social networking, crypto, crowdfunding, these are all ways to go, and sometimes, one of them really works. It's getting pretty crowded, and pretty competitive out there though, so prepare for a battle.

I wish you the best of luck.
