You could try some of the IT incubators as they generally have investors attached. Otherwise who is your audience for your film? This might tell you who you might like to approach for getting investors on board.

we already have half the investment.....and as soon as we secure rest, we have some name actors in supporting roles interested......appreciate your feedback....not sure what you mean as IT incubaters as Ive shot 9 shorts and some music videos and been lucky enough to win some big awards, this is my first feature

Stavros Georgiadis

As in Silicon Valley IT. Is there any IT incubators in your town? Usually their connected to universities.

Piece meal your feature. That means spending $$ on pre and production. Cut a sizzle reel after production. Show to Investors for the balance of postproduction and marketing. Your budget of $350K? $100K of that $350K should be for postproduction. So in reality u have $250 for pre and production. If u say u have half now, $175K, u have enough to push your project forward. Find a producer who is looking for Investors while u are in production

thanks everyone but no our half investment is contingent on garnering second half......so we have no access until then, though the people putting up first half, there is no time limit, they are on board and arent going anywhere

JD Glasscock

but our backers are an extremely large film festival in it's 12th year so will be utilizing their connections and favors heavily so we will not spend anywhere near that amount of money in post, not even close...and we have a few distributers thru festival already asking for a first look as soon as we are done...

JD Glasscock

basically with connections thru this festival, its a 350k budget that will look like twice that.....we have a lot of very talented people willing to put in their energy far below their normal rates with the look forward in believing in my ability and future so utilizing them again in other features

we were thinking of doing a fundraiser to garner money to buy full investment package review from Slated as their mandate is if you score 70 they will goto their investors...
