The Documentary will show the difference between 2 businesses, Pet Pavilion and the Essex Pooch Palace, in the wonderful world of luxury dog pampering. The businesses will create a contrast as one highlights the posh, upper class of Chelsea while the other shows the glitz and glamour of Essex. The Documentary will follow the customers as they go about their daily lives and finding out what drives these customers to pamper their dogs. Each business will bring their side of the story to life, Pet Pavilion is a multi-store business soaking in the wealth of upperclass London, whereas Essex Pooch Palace is a family run organisation offering the community a one of a kind experience for their pooches.
Why are we raising money?
Productions don't come cheap, and we want to make the best Documentary possible. The money will go towards crew travel expenses, accommodation and general production costs. The extra funding will allow us to focus on making the best piece possible without being limited on the number of filming days, equipment we use or contributors/voice actors we involve.
Travel: The majority of our film is based in London and Essex, which although we are doing our best to minimise costs, will not be cheap especially as we will have to make several trips to each location.
Accommodation: We may have to stay at either the London or Essex film location overnight should our production schedule require so. Funding will help cover the cost of hostels for crew.
General Production Costs: We are planning on having a voice-actor record voiceovers during certain parts of the Documentary. We don't believe in making people work for free therefore would use some of the money raised to re-imberse his time and travel expenses. We may also require some extra equipment to help boost production values, this would be rented as needed.
