Welcome to the dragon's journey!
White Dragon is film noir, it's mafia, it's action, it's sex, it's social criticism, it's humor, it's an artistic cast that pushes its characters to the limit; and a good shooting accompanied by a good fight couldn't be missed. For scriptwriters and directors it is essential to create fiction stories with one foot anchored in the current reality, dealing with problems typical of the time.

HOW MUCH MONEY IS NEEDED?
Making films is not cheap, behind it there is a team of professionals, cameras, opticians, lights, locations, sound... to get ahead, costing a lot of money. The amount we request through crowdfunding is a small part of the budget to be able to shoot it with a great effort by the whole team. However, the fact that the objective set in this crowdfunding is achieved does not mean that you can no longer be part of this team of dragons and help us carry it out, since if we get more capital we can do it in better conditions by raising the quality of the film. If this is your case, don't worry, you can still contribute and depending on the amount you contribute, you will continue to receive the respective rewards.
