- Oliver, Open Sense Productions
Open Sense Productions is a film company founded and started by myself to take on my first grandiose project, a feature film ("SUCH A FUNNY LIFE") that I have been preparing for since 2011. Ever since I can remember, I always had a very detailed imagination. So naturally, after the military, I attended various schools for the arts. Then after directing three obligatory short films, I was now ready to start my business and a wonderful project to accompany it.
The Kiva loan will help pay employees that work on the film under the company.
Crowdfunding can be a little frustrating in my experience, but I am now realizing it depends on where the platform you do the crowdfunding. I think lenders feel comfortable with Kiva. It has a noble approach, with noble people and noble businesses.
This is honestly the first crowdfunding experience where a complete stranger that has no ties to your business lends to you. I thought it was too good to be true, but low and behold it is GOOD and TRUE.
