Greista Grace, a FL based filmmaker, will pay to have someone review a feature film budget being sent to an industry insider who has requested it.   The budgeter she hired didn’t even spell her name correctly, so she feels she needs to have the work verified before sending it out.

FSU film alumni's female-driven feature film is seeking additional investors! Darkness in Tenement 45, a psychological thriller set in an alternate history of the Cold War, is seeking smart, creative partners who are interested in having 1% of total profits by investing $2,000. Along with receiving profits and supporting a primarily female-crewed film, investing partners have the opportunity to receive Associate and Executive Producer credits, be on set during production, attend the film's premiere and more! Tax deductible donations are also accepted.
