Short Summary

We are a group of high school students attempting to produce a short film about the dangers of texting and driving. You may think that $750 dollars is quite over kill for such a small project, and you would be right. This is not simply a video for a competition, this is an opportunity for our group of young film makers to learn how to produce quality content. We have written a script that is set at night in order to challenge our technical creativity. We hope you will consider donating. 

What We Need 

We have worked minor productions of various things in high school where we had access to DSLRs and various gear and lenses. As this is the first project I have done independent of high school. We am starting at zero.  As we have said, this short is set at night. This presents obvious problems such as light. Having dealt with DSLRs in the past, I am well aware of their poor low light performance. We plan to rent a set of lights, a set of fast primes, and of course, a camera to combat this issue.  Our goal is to rent a 5D Mark II or III, however, If my maximum finding goal is reached, we will be renting a C100 or a RED Scarlet. 

The Impact

Distracted driving is a major problem in the United States and around the world. Hundreds of thousands of people die every year form impaired driving. The impairment we have chosen to focus on is texting whilst driving. By contributing to this campaign, you will help inform young people about the dangers associated with Impaired driving.
