Obscure Studios is a small, under-funded film studio in Northern Arizona run by starving college students. By definition, starving college students don't have the resources necessary to feed themselves, let alone buy new equipment to make better films for you to enjoy.
We have a very long wish list of equipment we need to make the films we're dreaming about. Our cameras are most definitely substandard, as is our sound system and video editing programs. (Not to mention web hosting fees and funds for costumes, props, and set construction — ie. paint, wood, nails, etc.) We would really like to make an upgrade, but the money from our day jobs literally barely pays the rent and puts money on the table.
(Right: Our current camera. Not exactly state of the art...)
If you value imagination, creativity, and independent filmmaking — heck, if you believe in the American Dream and small American businesses, then I urge you to consider making a donation.
All money received goes into our fund for upcoming productions and will earn you a coveted place in the "Special Thanks" section of our credits and on our website.
Donate as much or as little as you would like — even a few dollars helps. Plus, you can make your donation securely through PayPal. You can't top that kind of peace of mind.
On behalf of all of us at Obscure Studios, thank you for your generosity and faith in our creative endeavors.
