"You always have a choice."

Kelvin has lived the low road for a long time but just as he thinks he is on his way up and out a stranger stirs something inside of him and provokes questions...about himself...about truth...about sacrifice.


My name is Stephen Ashford. I'm a filmmaker. I am in love with Cinema! Will talk movies and filmmaking all day. Up until now I haven't been able to put any work out there. All I have been able to do is hone my art and study while I have been the sole provider for my house for years...up until now. My wife has graciously given me the same oppurtunity to pursue my dreams like I gave her 2 years ago to become a nurse. But here in lies the problem. All my money is invested in equipment (i.e. camera, light stands, lights, boom mic, etc.) so I need help with funds.

And here is where you come in!

With your contributions we will be able to eat, sleep under a roof, actually get to Shreveport via gas, use a prop gun instead of a piece of cardboard... well, you get the idea. We honestly will not be able to get there without your help. And it would make me feel much better that all the sleepless nights I have been enduring these last months don't end right here with a road block. I really want to showcase my art. I mean I will do the film one way or another but I wont be able to be apart of the LAFilI really want to showcase my art.

So here is the Deal!

I'm very meticulous about details and with that being said I have budgeted the cost of our endeavor. We need $2500 minimum to cover expenses. This ranges from insurance, permits, to food on set for crew and actors, props, gas, hotel stay. We are a little less than a month away from shooting. This is going to be a short campaign. Help us make it happen!

The Team so far.

Ever since I was 10 I have been creating alternate realities, worlds and pursuing the art of storytelling. I did Improv for several years and began to create music when I was 15. I was also an upcoming tattoo artist for 5 years. I believe all these artistic backgrounds lend a hand in giving me a very well-rounded unique way of delivering stories to my audience.

Kari Kleinpeter - Actress
Nurse by day. Actress by night. She has been in short renditions of pieces such as Dracula and has a love for film. 

Andrea Evans - Actress
This upcoming Louisiana actress is accredited with 2 commercials and a recent pilot. She currently is under acting direction with Valeka Gray.

Scotty Thibiodeaux - Actor
Schooled at Ascension Christian High this cat is busy being a teenager and living life. He is getting his feet wet in this one.

So you say your broke.

I understand the feeling and that's ok. Just do me one favor. Spread the word. Spam facebook. Litter Twitter. Put the word out there and while you might not be dropping the currency you could get people who do have the paper to spend.

Thank you and Blessings to All.
