Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the majority of your crew located?

The majority of our crew is either in Namibia or South Africa. However, Rex, the film's cinematographer, is currently located all the way in the United States in New York, NY, and Anna, the film's producer, is in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They plan on flying over to Namibia in April to join with the rest of the crew.

When exactly will filming take place?

The main dates of our production will take place between April 23-May 10 of 2021. Any additional shooting days will take place before and after those dates.

Does your film have any media features? 

Yes! As of now, we have been featured in Namibian newspapers Republikein, and Windhoek Express.

Where is Namibia located? 

Namibia is an arid, sparsely dispersed country located in Southern Africa. It borders with South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Angola, and the Atlantic Ocean. Its population is a little over 2.5 million people. 

I have a question regarding donations-- who can I ask?

You can always contact our team at woestyn.film@gmail.com, shoot us a DM on Instagram at @woestyn_film, or contact the film’s producer, Anna, at annamlee11@gmail.com.

What payments does Indiegogo accept?

Indiegogo has several payment options for donations. The current options available are Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. 

Why should I consider donating?

Since our production's foundation is independent and our team consists of film students, we will need all the help we can get! We are reliant on support from our campaign and have also invested a great deal of our own personal funds, as well as time and energy, to bring this story to life and highlight the beauty and ambiguity of Namibia. Many of us are also balancing classes full-time. We will credit our supporters after the film's release and keep them up-to-date with our production process! Furthermore, we have recently added a unique list of perks that backers can choose from depending on their donation amount. Feel free to check them out on our Indiegogo campaign page, or under our "Campaign" category on the website.

I'm in a country with a different currency-- can I still donate?

Of course! Since our campaign is set to American Dollars, however, the payment will therefore be processed in USD. Converted amounts are estimated and may slightly differ depending on your card issuer's exchange rate.

Are you planning on submitting your film to any festivals?

Yes! After the post-production stage, we plan on submitting our film to as many international film festivals as we can. We will have more information after our shooting period, as we get closer to festival season in the fall.
