Ok, HERE is our situation:

We make ski/snowboard videos. I'd say movie/film but thats incorrect :blink:.

We LOVE what we do, and have aqquired a great amount of tallent throughout all our experances.

We realy want to move on from the Canon GL1s we have been using from our local TV station, mainly because video and snow dont mix. Unfortunetly, we have NO way to pay for any more then two cameras (Krasnogorsk-3), two light meeters and two tripods. I need some advice on getting other people to pay for the film stock and procesing.

If any one has any advice for us, or would like to help us out, PLEASE post back here.

Thanks so much,
Dory

Why would someone else pay for your film and processing? Sounds like you should be trying to pay-off production costs through the sale of your ski footage, unless you are working from a commission and can get some money up-front for production.
