Using a lot of craft, skill, and with support from our awesome crew and cast we were able to film the pilot on a shoe-string budget. In total we spent about $7,000 to bring the pilot of Project Mammoth: Awakening to life for viewers to enjoy and expect to spend almost $16,000 more in order to continue to put the same kind of quality into our production of season 1. While we have done our best to minimize the costs for the full season by creating some costumes, props, and 3D environments that can be re-purposed or reused, we’ll need the support of the Project Mammoth community and backers like you in order to realize our goal of giving you a full season of Project Mammoth: Awakening.
Our estimated budget is below. It represents minimal costs, and we know we will often have to rely on cast and crew to donate time or skills to make this small budget production happen. Backing our IndieGoGo campaign for Project Mammoth: Awakening is all about helping make this amazing sci-fi web series possible. We hope you’ll follow Project Mammoth and back us starting May 27th when our crowdfunding campaign kicks off!
