Why do we need sponsors?

How much does it cost to make a film?
Where will your money go?
How will it be used?

Those are all very good questions!

In general, an independent short film of professional quality can cost anywhere between $50,000-$300,000. Of course, it's very hard to quantify such things in today's world. General consumers can create films on their iPhone for very little and Hollywood can spend millions of dollars on blockbuster hits. Adventure Minnesota Films is dedicated to producing an exceptional and professional product, created by a team of professionals and using the latest high-end techonology. Our films are in the $50K-$300K range.

Your contribution will help pay for the following anticipated expenses and more:

  • Website design, development and maintenance
  • Research, script-writing, and all pre-production planning
  • All production costs, including equipment, labor, and travel
  • Filming permits and music licenses
  • Originally scored music by local Minnesotan musicians!
  • Editing and post-production costs
  • Sound design
  • Motion design
  • Color
  • Film festival and other submission fees
  • Distribution expenses
  • Operational business expenses
