Dances to Vanquish Demons

Endangered dance in the worlds highest mountains

Cham, magical dance of the remote Himalayas, has been used for centuries by Buddhist monks to battle demons. Now the battle is for cham itself. This 22 minute documentary tells the story of an ancient ritual on the verge of extinction, and a small group of American dancers ghting to protect it.

THE PLAN Producing a film provides the opportunity to create events to invite people to. It isnt so important they attend - whats important is our mailing in front of their eyes. We send invitations to fundraising events, like a dance film night; a crew sendoff party; a wrap party. Before the film is even finished weve sent out three mailings. Then a final lock party when the film is complete. Then a private showing. Then a release party. 6 times. 6 mailings. Plus the PR well generate for each event posters, newspapers, radio spots and of course the internet. Every single one saying Core of Culture.

We have a GREAT story. Film markets are easily accessible. An large industry exists to market lms. The internet oers new marketing options. Films make news. People love lms. People watch lms. Making movies makes sense to people; its an easy idea to support.

A lm production can begin immediately, and has a foreseeable end. Fundraising can begin immediately. People and corporations donate to lms. Films make money. Films get seen.

The making of a film is a positive step in establishing CoCs brand. In the end well have an attractive piece of promotional media telling the story of CoC and Endangered Ancient Dance in the Himalayas, in an accessible (and easily distributable) format. And well have a list of people we can contact later to say If you thought the film was cool, check out what were doing next people who will have heard our pitches 6 times.
