Make money fast?

hi i am 13 years old and am actually planning to make a little short film with my friends, i have a budget of about 4 to 5 thousand dollars. i need to make about half of this in a year because my friend is covering the other half. since i am not old enough to get a job is there anyone out there who could give me some reliable tips on making this much money?

Is this going to be a project that others might be interested in? What will the file be about? Is there anything special you could offer people if they wanted to contribute to the film because they like the idea?

Think about these questions and your answers. Then put together a good writeup about the film you want to make, why you want to make it and whats in it for people who may want to contribute to the project. Then Put a video together with all that info and go to Kickstarter and start a project. At Kickstarter you are able to present your ideas and try to raise money to get the idea going. In the world of small businesses and even entertainment people have to find others who have the money and petition them to take on the project. In Business they are called Venture Capitalist and in the movie and music industry they are called producers. Kickstarter takes this idea and instead of finding a single person or studio to fund the idea you present it to millions of people who could contribute $1 or more to your project. Look through some of the Film and Video projects that are on there and some that have been funded. Se what they did to get people's attention and get the money they where looking for. You may end up over funded.

i think that it would be great to start a kickstarter, by the file you mean the film right? and thank you very much for the help it means a lot. i run a YouTube channel if you wanna check it out, be warned its kind of weird but i need views to get partners then i could make money from that too.

Your budget isn't $5k if you don't have the money. Your looking to increase your budget.
How are you going to spend $5k on a short film at 13? Does this mean you plan on buying a camera with that money? Depending on what you need yo may be able to borrow some of the equipment you need, especially if your school as a photography or videography class or club.

You're 13 and you plan to spend 4 to 5 thousand dollars on a little short film, money which you are extremely unlikely to make back from the film.
Yet you've no idea where to get the money; this doesn't sound right.

What is the drive to spend 4 to 5 thousand dollars on a short film (when you don't have 4 to 5 thousand dollars)?

You need to earn about $7.00 a day to get what you need in a year...

Do you do chores at home for an allowance? If not, talk to your parents.

Collect bottles and return them for cash.

Mow lawns for money. Walk dogs for money. Start babysitting. Deliver local newspapers (even at 13 years old, you should be able to do that).

Have a garage sale and get rid of some things you don't use anymore.

There's MANY ways to make $7.00 a day... Just use your imagination! ;-)
