Busy Soul Searcher day. Our very helpful development producer friend sent a long list of financing options and contact details to us, so James and I spent the day going through this, making phone calls, sending e-mails and typing up our pitching materials. So far we have sent a treatment, character designs and crew info to two sales agencies, a TV station (with mention of a possible series stemming from the film) and also Screen West Midlands. We are also working on getting a mentor on board, an executive producer with a track record in fantasy films whose support would greatly improve our chances of securing finance.
We are continuing our efforts to raise private investment as well, and to that end we have sent out press releases today to all the local newspapers.
