My name is Donavan Seschille... recently I received some startling news about getting accepted into the Sundance Film Festival for a short film entitled "The Rocket Boy". Due to the economy, Sundance and their funding has been cut low for this year, which is unfortunate considering that it's my first time going to a big event.
The deal is, we need funding for promotional use, for covering poster printing, website management, and DVD copies for our screening sessions. This is a once in a lifetime type of event, and I hope everything goes right on my end. View the trailer and the website, and I hope it encourages a lot of folks.
Also for more information, or if you're going to be in Park City, Utah for this event, the screening times are listed below.
Friday, January 21, noon
Yarrow Hotel Theatre, Park City

At the age of 22, we're the youngest Native American (Navajo) filmmakers to be featured at the Sundance Film Festival. Due to this, we hope to distribute our short film to many viewers and hopefully to many funders. Another thing to note is that our post-production value is 50% larger that our actual short film... since our team made it under $600 dollars.
As far as I know, we're the only short film that was made with virtually no funding from grants or loans.
