  • Phase 1: The first thing we needed was to raise public awareness of the project in the target destination and raise enough money to set up the companies (a for profit corporation which will run and later expand the physical facility CfEA, and a not for profit foundation FYSF that will coordinate the FXpo exhibition). Additionally we need to register names and trademarks. Cost about 10000 euros. FUNDS RAISED ✔
  • Phase 2: We need money for frequent air travel whilst raising funds and setting up FXpo. Cost about 8000 euros. SPONSORSHIP RAISED ✔
  • Phase 3: we have to rent a facility to provide us with a physical location. To get started we will rent an area of approximately 1600 sq meters for 6 months and minimally furnish an office and install, telephone, internet, water etc. Cost about 68000 euros
  • Phase 4: The initial construction phase will install walls and partitions to define public areas, ticketing, shops, restaurants, concession areas and the exhibit area. Cost about 100,000 euros
  • Phase 5: To show potential sponsors how FXpo will be presented, we need to set up part of the exhibit… a series of displays on specific subjects that indicate the style and nature of the exhibit. For this we need to hire a full time assistants and art director, decorate the initial showcase areas as we intend to do the whole area, film the initial source material/interviews, purchase and install the necessary lighting, purchase and install the required equipment for the relevant holograms, I estimate this can be done in less than 2 months and will cost about 75000.
  • Phase 6: We must acquire the a significant amount of relics for the exhibit and transport them to the location, insure them, construct the display and have money for airfares while we do it. Funds for insurance shipping and airfares to estimated at 35,000 euros
  • AT THAT POINT WE ARE VERY LIKELY TO GET SPONSORS TO COVER THE REMAINING COSTS.
  • Phase 7: The size and scope of the initial FXpo at time of opening will depend upon the available resources. If we get big sponsors then we can start BIG. If we do not get a sponsor at all then we would have to complete at a minimum size, and expand when income allows. To complete the minimum sized FXpo we will raise the money display by display from enthusiasts for that movie or personality. To assemble the minimum number of displays and to fly in FX celebrities for the opening would cost a total 100000.
  • Phase 8: The final stage will be to hire permanent staff, cleaners, security, exhibit aides, office staff.
  • WE DON’T EXPECT TO RAISE EVERYTHING IN ONE FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN. It will take time to assemble everything we need. But enthusiasm for the project is high and EVERY PENNY RAISED FOR FXpo WILL BE SPENT ON FXpo.
