Geoff Orlowski wants to take his filmmaking talents to the next level.

The Whitesboro resident has been writing and making his own movies — from short films in college to his first feature film that he shot last year in Utica.

To get to the next level with his second feature-length movie, though, he needs better equipment. And that means more money. The funds for his first film came straight out of his pocket, and it covered only meals and some equipment, he said.

“It’s a sad thing, when you see all the skills that the actors and the crew members have and they’re not going to get paid for it,” he said.
