Why Contribute?

$10,000 will allow us to shoot this project! 

Our goal of $25,000 will cover the entire costs of post-production, marketing, film festivals and everything we'll need to do to share this project across the globe.

SOCIAL ACCEPTANCE plays a critical role in today's society. Our project is directed to display the importance of "Unconditional" social acceptance. Most of us have felt unaccepted, or conditionally accepted at some point in our life.

Society has come a long way, but still have a long road to go because a great percentage of acceptance today is "conditional."  

Yes, $25k is a lofty goal and a big undertaking and that is why YOU MATTER! It is our belief that if we all can contribute a small portion, together we can make big impact and a forever lasting impression. Please do not be shy to contribute even $1. No amount contributed will go unnoticed.

 Why Dandelion Dreams

Dandelion Dreams was born from the concept that society, as a whole, does not accept people who live outside of social norms.  With the current controversies surrounding bullying, same sex marriage and rights of same sex partners, racism, religious intolerance, etc. this project is timely and its message needs to be heard.

Because we did not have enough money to shoot the entire project, we chose to at least show you something in order for you to see the level of quality we will produce. 

This 2 minute clip is a portion of the first few minutes of the opening of our film.


What is Dandelion Dreams

Dandelion Dreams is a personal story of a young professional, Michael Gregory, and his journey to face the challenges of living up to what he feels are social norms.

His life begins to unravel when his agency hires a new executive, Jeff Carlson, who he is forced to work with on his biggest account. This shakes Michael’s confidence as the company’s current golden boy.

Frustrated by his work situation and confused with his personal relationships, Michael retreats to a place that has always felt safe to him, a park. As he observes people enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning, his attention is immediately drawn to an innocent child freely exploring nature and his surroundings. 

The story continues to unfold as we watch Michael learn he will live a more fulfilled life when he accepts who he is and what he truly wants, rather than living his life just to fit in.

 

The Dandelion Dream Team's Goal

We will create an entertaining, thought provoking, socially aware film.

 

What the Dandelion Dreams Team Needs

We need your SUPPORT!  

It will take $25,000 to fully fund this amazing project, but only $12,500 to shoot it. This is why we choose to use Indiegogo as our funding platform vs.Kickstarter. Every dollar donated no matter whether or not we reach our goal will go directly to this production. This means even if we cannot meet our overall goal listed we still can make this project and continue our funding efforts for post production and marketing. As you will see from our short clip above, we will produce a quality project with a quality cast and crew.  

The Dandelions Dreams Team has already put thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours into this project...from producing the previously mentioned clip, to marketing materials and initiatives, to solidifying locations, set design, and props. We wouldn't ask you to support us if we weren't willing to contribute our fair share.
