What The Film Is About
Class Dismissed will be the first full-length documentary devoted to exploring homeschooling as a viable alternative to traditional schooling.
As homeschoolers ourselves, we are constantly reminded by the degree to which the public misperceptions of homeschooling are far removed from reality. With this documentary we hope to both educate the general public as well as inspire the existing homeschool community.
But we cant do it alone: we need your support & guidance!
What We Need And What You Get
As you may be well aware, making movies is not cheap. Hollywood considers $1-3 million a low-budget film. Thankfully we have the skills, experience, and connections to make this film for substantially less.
If enough people contribute even a small amount, we can make this film. If we are able to reach our immediate goal of raising $15,000 well be able to:
- Green-light the film (in non-Hollywood terms, this means the film will be guaranteed production)
- Obtain the necessary insurance and legal documents
- Cast a family for the documentary (the documentary will center around one family making the homeschooling decision)
- Rent camera equipment, sound equipment, and lighting packages
Our film is supported by the San Francisco Film Society so all of your donations are tax deductible. We understand that times are tough for some people but even $10 will be an enormous help in making our dream a reality.
** 10/5/11 NEWS: The National Home Educators Network (NHEN) is providing a separate matching donation for the first $5k raised here. This means each dollar that you contribute will count as two.
