Dearest friends, followers, and passersby:
It has been a few weeks since launching my Indiegogo campaign: “The Poet and the Flea: Send G.E. to the U.K.”. Since then, I have received a number of contributions from generous funders. I truly appreciate these contributions and am eternally grateful to these funders for helping me inch one step further to achieving my dream.
That being said — I still need more help!!
There are 22 days left until the end of my campaign. That means 22 days left for you to contribute to my dream of becoming a professional screenwriter.
Please check out more information below, and don’t forget to visit my campaign page: http://www.indiegogo.com/send-GE-to-UK.
Time is running out, and I need your help!
I am trying to raise funds to go to Northern England for the filming of my short screenplay The Man Who Never Smiled, a contemporary film noir about the tragic fate of a father and his daughter. As the screenwriter, it is important for me to be on set for any last-minute changes. But the production company is working on a shoe-string budget and has no funds to get me there or even pay me. Please help me make my dream of becoming a professional screenwriter come true!

My name is G. E. Gallas, and I am a screenwriter and graphic novelist (writer/illustrator). I will be making a trip to the U.K. early next year, and need your help to make my dreams come true!
1. My short screenplay, The Man Who Never Smiled (a contemporary film noir), is being produced by Dream Catcher Films in the North West of England. This film is being made on a tight budget, and there are no funds for me to get there. It’s important for me to be there during filming so that I can make on-the-spot changes to the script and get hands-on experience in film production.
2. In between filming will be the perfect opportunity to visit London to research the 18th-Century poet-painter William Blake, the hero of my graphic novel The Poet and the Flea. I plan to visit Blake’s grave as well as various museums that house his works. Seeing his works in person would be life changing. This would be my first time in England, and I hope to make this an unforgettable learning experience.
Your contributions will help cover expenses for transportation (airplane, train) and lodging. I truly appreciate any and all support, whether through contributions and/or spreading the word through social media (Twitter, etc.)!!
While in Europe, I plan to document my travels. When I return, I will share my photos and experiences with all of you through my blog gegallas.wordpress.com.
Thank you so much!
