Sponsorship Opportunities for Businesses and Individuals

Carpe and Zen Productions is currently looking for businesses and individuals to sponsor our projects including feature films and our film festival, the Gila Valley Film Festival. We are looking for businesses that are interested in providing locations for filming, products to appear on camera, or financial support of these and future projects.

Sponsorships from businesses and individuals are not creative positions. Your support does not grant you the ability to make decisions about the film story, casting, and the like.

If you are interested in participating, please contact us at carpeandzen@gmail.com. See more information below.


We are filmmakers that live and work in the Gila Valley. We want to build a thriving community of filmmakers and filmgoers. As such, we are looking for anyone in the Gila Valley who is interested in supporting our productions.

The timing of the premiere and distribution of each film will depend on its acceptance into film festivals. After the film has completed its film festival run, we expect to distribute it through our partner, Burning Bulb Productions. When the film is distributed, we expect for it to be available to purchase on Blu Ray and DVD through our website as well as other online retailers (e.g., Amazon, Best Buy, etc.). We also expect the film to be available to stream on multiple platforms, though this is dependent upon the film being accepted by these platforms. We have previously had our work accepted by Amazon, Tubi, Pluto, etc.

We are prepared to offer the following perks for your support in making the film:

  • IMDB credit as Associate Producers
  • Tickets to a premiere located in the Gila Valley
  • An invitation to a premiere party for cast, crew, and business sponsors
  • Blu Ray and DVD copies of the completed film
  • Your business branding on the Official Movie T-Shirt
  • Placement of your products in the film
  • Movie posters
  • Discount on additional copies of the film

We are open to negotiate other perks or terms for support.


We are currently looking for the following types of locations:

  • Private Residences
  • Offices
  • Corporate Workspaces
  • Businesses

Financial Support

If you or your business would like to provide financial support, we can discuss fair compensation.
