#stopmonsanto is a scripted movie about five young activists who protest the actions of Monsanto by launching a #stopmonsanto campaign. The story begins with our main character attending an anti-Monsanto rally in an effort to impress his ex-girlfriend. While at the rally, he learns about Monsanto and soon becomes very involved in protesting against the company. Along the way, he teams up with several like-minded young people and they work together to raise awareness about Monsanto. When their initial methods of protest do not work, they perform a series of attention grabbing stunts. The protestors' actions put them in directly in the company’s sight, with devastating consequences.
We’re fed up with Monsanto and how they’re treating farmers and consumers, so we decided to make a movie about it. We want to know whether the foods we eat contain GMOs (they better not!) and we think that all foods should be properly labeled. We hope the movie is entertaining and helps educate viewers about what Monsanto is doing and what the company stands for. By donating and supporting the film, you have the chance to help #stopmonsanto!

HOW YOUR MONEY WILL HELP
Even with our low budget film expertise, it is still a tremendous undertaking to make a movie. We need these funds in order to hire a proper crew and cast, obtain the necessary equipment, shoot the film on location in Los Angeles, and complete post-production work. We’ll be working with a shoe-string budget and calling in favors from lots of friends, but there are still certain costs that need to be paid.
