| SEND A TOKEN INQUIRY |

Independent studios like Blue Forge Productions sometimes ask for volunteers to play walk-on roles or "extras" in film or television projects where the crew is also volunteering and the budget is limited. At BFP, when you help us, we give you a chit -- a token and a promise. You can't mistake a BFP chit because we use our trademark steel gears.

If you've volunteered time at
BFP since it was founded in 2011, make sure you get your tokens! You've earned one token every time you've been on set with us for free. This doesn't count festivals, competitions, or projects where you earn a backend royalty. Not sure if you've earned tokens? Click the link above and put the words TOKEN INQUIRY in the subject field. You'll receive a report within 24 hours.

What can you do with your chits? Cash them in, of course! Trade in these quantities for any of these services or products:

2 Chits
Five raffle tickets at any premiere event.

10 Chits
A basic DVD at any premiere event.

12 Chits
Two tickets to any one premiere event. (Festivals excluded.)

15 Chits
Develop a short film with us. Star in it or select the star.
We'll write, film, edit and score the film and release it commercially on DVD and streaming online.
You'll earn 30% of all revenue from sales indefinitely with no cap
and receive credit as a producer (and actor, if applicable) on IMDb and in the film.

25 Chits
Four tickets to any one premiere event. (Festivals excluded.)

40 Chits
We'll create a two-minute actors' reel for you selecting footage
from any projects you've done with BFP as well as adding in
any other footage you have permission to use.

60 Chits
Develop a feature film with us. Star in it or select the star.
We'll write, film, edit and score the film and release it commercially on DVD and streaming online.
You'll earn 30% of all revenue from sales indefinitely with no cap
and receive credit as a producer (and actor, if applicable) on IMDb and in the film.


Here's some fine print:

Chits are transferable between individuals so you're allowed to give your chit to someone else.

If you and your minor child have volunteered for us, you may pool your chits.

If your pet or other animal companion has volunteered for us, they will also receive a chit and you can pool your chits with theirs.

One chit is earned for every day you, your child or your animal friend are on set working with us. If you are only accompanying your child or pet, you do not earn a chit. Likewise, babysitters or guardians or handlers do not earn chits.
