From the Worcester Telegram:
Jon Artigo and Andrea Ajemian are looking for a little help from their friends, their acquaintances and anyone else willing to pitch in.
After two years of hard work, the filmmakers have raised enough money to shoot their third teen comedy set in Central Massachusetts. They have raised $500,000 from local investors to make “We Got the Beat,” the minimum needed to move ahead, Ms. Ajemian said. Originally, the goal was four times that amount.
“Persistence pays off,” Ms. Ajemian said from her office in the Printers Building in downtown Worcester. “We’re excited to move forward, but we are going to rely heavily on the Worcester community to come through with donations in order to make this movie look like it was shot for $2 million.
