Event Information: Documentary Crowdfunding Campaign for “Maritime Metal” finds tremendous community support on IndieGogo!  After just one day of crowdfunding on IndieGogo.com, independent filmmaker Billy Stever has already reached nearly 5% of the budget needed to make his music documentary “Maritime Metal”. Co-producers Dan Crowder, Niagara College alumni, and Jeff Mahfoud, Concordia University Communications graduate, are thrilled with the show of audience support so early in production. With three weeks left for fans to contribute to the campaign and collect unique rewards, funding the film on-time is looking like a sure bet. To date, Billy and his team have logged over 300 hours in research, planning, and shooting for the film. They’ve posted exclusive video clips from three interviews to the IndieGogo campaign web page, giving fans a taste of what they’ll see in the finished film. Modern audiences are hungering for more personal stories in the music documentary genre. Inspired by Canadian studio Banger Films and his own roots in the Maritime metal scene, Billy Stever knows the time is right for making this film. Support from throughout the Maritimes is pouring in. “People are already sending us stories and material. They want to be a part of this. We’re putting Maritimers on-screen, and these guys love their metal,” explains Billy. The documentary goes into production early 2019. LINK TO CAMPAIGN https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/maritime-metal-documentary#/ BILLY STEVER Maritime Metal is Billy Stever’s first foray into documentary filmmaking. He was a music promoter in the 2000s in Nova Scotia, and currently resides in Montréal.
