Why are you supporting The 1 Second Film? read more testmionials

  • I am donating because it is a fun thing that happens to be for a good cause. Plus, it can't hurt to be credited as a producer on such a novel project.

  • I heard about The 1 Second Film miraculously actually. I have a few friends in the film business down in the cold North of Ottawa and it appeared on their web pages as a link. After reading about The 1 Second Film project how in the world could I resist the temptation of being a part of such an ingenious idea?! I have to admit, I have never financed a film before. In theatre, however, I have lent many a dollar bill to help run a show…they don’t use the term starving artist for no reason. But I am glad to say that this film project is the first I am proud to hand over my check to. Not only is it creative and refreshing but it certainly is a worthy cause; artists know best how hard it is to get off your feet and really be able to support (financially) the projects you believe are necessary to share with the world. This project I believe is a history making moment. The faith of the team and those who want to be apart of it is truly inspirational to other artists around the world. Again, thank you soooooo very much for making this opportunity possible. I wish you all the best in this and future endeavours. If you need any help from us Canadians feel free to ask.

  • I think that this is a unique experience to take part in. I also like the ideology behind what it represents, the perfect moment!

  • I see the goodness of humanity in this project AND in the people behind it.

  • I want to be part of something big and small at the same time.

  • I've been involved in this biz we call show for 20 years now but have never seen anything so novel, we had to be a part of this.

  • Yeah, I may be living in lil’ ol’ Charlotte, NC, but now I’m a big-time Hollywood producer.

  • Sounded like fun. And oddball. I like fun and oddball.

  • My husband, Gary S. Mann, asked for it for his birthday.

  • Fame and Fortune... and a good cause :)

  • Sounds like a unique idea for a good cause.

  • I chose to finance the 1 second film cause i think it's an interesting experiment and a very worthwhile cause.

  • I think that the creation of this film will prompt people to discuss the way art functions with other factors in culture, such as money and community.

  • It's a great idea that deserves support, in addition to the bit of shameless self-promotion. But really, I love the philosophical Idea of perfect moments. Thats life, nothing lasts forever, but one second of perfection, that's worth more than something great that lasts beyond infinity. It's great to see a project of such immense size, that it has grown into, culminate in something that only lasts a second, and will only be screened once (in it's original format).

  • When people combine forces, they can accomplish the impossible - when I heard about this movement to bring together the film community to collaborate on art to benefit women's rights, I knew I wanted to contribute to the project and help to get the word out. I am in love with the idea!

  • I'm financing it because I'd love to see my name on the big screen.

  • I am making a donation because I think this is an absolutely ingenious project! What a great idea. I am proud to be a part of it!

  • Because it's a start. I like to help people out.

  • I saw the info on the various sequels in the works and they're all sounding terrific. I think that anyone with an eye (and an appreciation) for the extra-ordinary and the unique will be interested in what you are trying to accomplish. It is so creative, so innovative, that it will be over many people's heads, but those who you would really want to support your efforts will do so. I can't tell you how many friends I run into that have also taken part. I see a lot of their names on the list: Tony Bui, Jesse Bradford, Zack Schiller, Evie Ponce, Adam Colvin, BJ Novak...the list goes on. Anyway, congrats on all the support you've raised!

  • Its a great concept with profits going to a worthy cause.
