In October 2017 the movie will have finished filming. We will have more than twenty hours of rushes.The shooting of this film has taken place over three years thanks to the help and the logistical support of the technical providers, as well as the participation of many friends around and on the film set. It is with this same state of mind that we looked to using crowdfunding to complete the film. Any money raised will help to finance, in part, the film’s POST-PRODUCTION : editing, voice recording, sound mixing and calibration. We have greatly benefited from the support of the studios that have provided their equipment. All that remains is the fundraising for the human side of things: the wages of the technicians IMAGE EDITOR, SOUND EDITOR, SOUND-EFFECT ENGINEER, SOUND MIXER, IMAGE TIMER. For example, the image editor worked at the director’s side for 8 weeks The fundraising will be used to provide minimum wage as well as to settle some music rights.
How much does POST-PRODUCTION make up out of the film’s overall budget ?
About 35,000 euros out of the total production budget of 155,000 euros. This total budget is made up from many donations from members of the industry and in kind, from technicians’ and actors’ participations. It should be noted that the film The Melancholies of Sade has one of the lowest budgets amongst upcoming French releases: Out of 200 films produced in 2015 (whose costs vary from 50,000 euros to 50 million euros), only 7 have a budget of less than 200,000 euros.
