I need your help to shoot my first full length film.

I am setting a goal of $15,000. This is the absolute minimum that I need to shoot my film. I could use a lot more to make it easier but with $15,000 I know that I can complete a great product.

These funds will go to travel, equipment, advertising, crew, permits, props, etc.

I can promise you that every cent will be spent wisely.

Short Movie Summary

Kerri Robbins , a recent college graduate, is in love with an older divorced man (Joseph) but she has to keep their relationship a secret because her mother (Catherine) and father (Bernard), who is a Bishop of a church, does not approve of the relationship. Kerri ends up having a child (Elijah) out of wedlock and moves away with another man. As Elijah enters college he begins to go down a path of destruction while in search of his biological father. Where they both end up is a total shocker!

The Impact

There's no way that I can do this without your assistance. I am probably one of the most driven people that you will ever meet in life. Anytime that I say I'm going to do something, I make every effort to do it.

This film creates opportunities for people. Not only will one of my biggest dreams come true, but I will give actors/actresses the opportunity to grow in their careers. This movie will allow people to work and this film will speak to people and encourage them to always keep their faith no matter what obstacle they encounter
