Ongoing Fundraising - Mennonite Doc

For those who don't know, I've been working on and off on a documentary about a local Mennonite community for the last two years.  I anticipate one more Spring of shooting and then we can go into editing (finally).  In order to shoot what we need, though--and to afford an editor--funds are desperately needed.  Funds to the tune of about $2500.00!  We are doing this through the website Chip In (take a look at the widget in the right sidebar).  Donations can be made by clicking on the widget and using Paypal (credit cards and debit cards can be used as well).

This fundraiser is also serving as a 'test drive' for future fund raising events for the Memphis Film Society; in short, if we can successfully raise $2500 using online marketing and resources, we can assist local filmmakers with raising funds in the future (though that will be done through the MFS website (  Despite the link for the fundraising page, this is purely an Elsinore Productions project and fundraiser. 

So please help us raise $2500!  Donations of $10 or $20 are fine.  Everyone who donates will get a 'thank you' in the film credits--but keep in mind that anyone who donates $50 or more will get a co-producer's credit in the movie.  Thanks!
