Let’s Finish “Nomfundo”
Nomfundo is a short film about a conflicted, young woman whose life is
irrevocably changed when she has a transcendental encounter with a stranger.
Sihle Hlophe and Dineo Lusenga have been working in the local TV and film industry for the last 8 years. Both of them are deeply passionate about storytelling and empowering other young people. Earlier this year, they came together in order to create the beautiful story of “Nomfundo”, a conflicted young woman whose life is irrevocably changed when she has a transcendental encounter with a stranger.
Filmmakers usually apply to funding bodies such as the National Film & Video Foundation in order to fund their films. This process can be draining and in some cases, futile, especially because of the current economic climate. That is why Sihle Hlophe and Dineo Lusenga have taken it upon themselves to raise funds using a non-traditional funding method, namely crowdfunding. The funds raised will be used to complete the film. The film is currently in the post-production stage and funds are needed for editing, color grading, sound design, final mix, marketing and distribution. The team is not making this film strictly for financial remuneration; rather it is for the deep love of storytelling.
The film was shot on location in Walkerville, Gauteng in December 2015. Post-production will be finalized in March 2016 and the premiere of the film will be in May 2016. Your support is deeply appreciated. Lets finish “Nomfundo”!
