a still from Here Tomorrow music video (Isle of Man)

It really was a miracle that so many people from around the world wanted to help me make my first major short film, Love Like Hers. So many generous contributions and so many of you taking advantage of some of the creative perks we were offering – a little way of giving something back.

Now, I don’t want to go into the whole crowd funding thing again in this blog. I just wanted to share with you one of the ways in which we raised the £10k needed to make the film. I thought, quite a unique idea, I’d never seen anyone do this before.

I came up with the idea of taking a song that was made for the film and shooting a music video for it. The song was ‘Here Tomorrow’, composed my Niklas Aman, both Niklas and myself wrote the lyrics and Anna Goldsmith added her stunning vocals. The idea then was to make the video and song available for download.

So, I jumped on the ferry and headed over to the lovely Isle of Man where a very good friend of mine let me use his camera kit and his cinematography skills (Dave Armstrong – check out his film projects here). We shot the video over two days. It was a great experience playing the role of producer, director, editor and grader on this music video.

The music video was made available for download as soon as it was finished. The price for the music video download (in HD) was just £2.50 and the song was £1.50. There were over 70 music videos downloaded in total helping us raise over £200 towards the film. Which was great. Not only that, but the music video is proving to be a very useful promotional tool for the film.

Some time has now passed since the crowd funding, and I’ve finally decided to release the music video and song for everyone to see. We’re so very proud of what we achieved in such a short amount of time. I hope you like what you see and hear.

    This is an amazing display of creativity. Most directors have an abundance of creativity in moviemaking but lack the business creativity in raising funds and marketing. I guess you have both Danny.

    Thanks Dexter, very kind words. Just trying to get my films made, I think it's important to think outside the box sometimes.

    Hope you are well.
