Award-Winning Photographer Pitches Online to Raise Funds for Documentary Film Completion

(December 01, 2011)

New York, NY, December 01, 2011 --( Independent filmmaker Muema turns to the internet to crowdfund his feature film House Music Movie, a documentary series about the electronic music world. The film was shot on location in New York City, Ibiza, London, Germany, Holland, Miami and Los Angeles. To date, Muema has interviewed legendary DJ’s such as Tony Humphries, David Morales, Paul Trouble Anderson, Louie Vega and David Harness; legendary singers such as Barbara Tucker and Joi Cardwell; and many more.

Muema has been working on this documentary about house music for the last four years. Now he is in the post-production stage and he’s really excited to bring this dream to fruition. He’s not doing it alone. Deeply committed to this project, four members of the team (Director, Editor, Co-Producer and Music Supervisor) have been contributing their time over the last two years to make this film happen. Having already wrapped shooting, he is now at a critical moment in post-production and editing.

In line with guidelines, artists have a set number of days to raise all the funds. Muema has a 60 day fundraising window, from start to finish to raise the budgeted amount ($115,000).

To date, the film has been shot on a myriad of cameras including the iPad, the iPhone, the Sony PD-170, the Canon 5D, the Canon 5D MKii, the Canon 50D, the Lumix DXC-LX3, and the Sony DCR-HC62. If the film is successfully funded, Muema expects to complete the final cut by Q2 2012. To learn more about the film, readers can visit the project’s pitch page here:
