"The South Got Something to Say." - Andre Benjamin (OutKast)

We’re in post-production now or what you might know as the editing process. This is when Atlanta Black Tech Mecca gets transformed from images filmed on set into a real film. It involves an editor, sound design, music composition, coloring grading, sound mixing and mastering all to make a shiny finished product.

Right now we’ve got the rough gem. We’ve come 80 percent of the way by paying for production costs through a mix of angel investors and personal savings. But we need your help to get the film 100 percent finished and out into the world.

Your contributions will help us:

Pay a fair wage to a post-production team of young working professionals.Purchase the systems that will keep Atlanta Black Tech Mecca and its final edited files safe for years to come.Afford the costly technical systems that many premiere and international film festivals require in order to submit films to them. We believe films are made to be seen so these institutions are an important platform for our story. Any additional funds over our campaign goal will be used to develop and execute kid-friendly programming with Tech In Black And White's partners. After Atlanta Black Tech Mecca screens at American Black Film Festival and Bronzelens Film Festival, we will submit the film to Short of the Week and Nowness. Then, we intend to make the film available on a streaming platform like Amazon’s Prime Video.
