Short Summary

Hi Everyone!

This is a true story of a man without a voice. Over two years ago CNN leaked surveillance video of James Craig Anderson being run over by a pickup truck. When you watch the video it sends chills up your spine. Click Here

Eric was one of the first local TV news reporters on the scene gathering information when it was initially classified as a hit-and-run. Turns out, it was a gruesome hate crime that so many people thought was in Mississippi's past. 

Eric has always felt that "Craig" was robbed of his life and the community was robbed of seeing who this voiceless victim was. He's spent the last two years searching for answers and now it is time to tell the final chapter of his life.

Hopefully this film inspires the good in all of us. It is a reminder that we may not all look or act the same but humanity is what connects us. 

Please help us tell this important story. Think about it... if you or someone you know was run down in the street like trash wouldn't you want to at least get a sense of who they were?

Please visit our website. Join our movement to get the word out.

What We Need & What You Get

We're pushing to make this a made-for-tv film which means we don't have a lot of time for production. Our budget for this film is 1,000,000 however we know that's too much to raise on this site. We want to raise as much as possible and then get investor funds to make up the rest. 

Your donations will help with pre-production,( location scouting, attorney fees, securing actors for characters and more) production( the actual shooting of the film) and post-production(editing for air).

Everyone who donates will be invited to our special showing here in Jackson! You'll get to meet the actors/actresses, our director (directed various TV shows and movies for lifetime) and some of the real-life people who were portrayed.

We've got T-shirts and coffee mugs. Our higher donors will have dinner with the cast as well as a listing in the movie credits.

We will allocate a portion of the proceeds from this film to be split between the immediate family and the victim's partner.

The Impact

The Fate of Hate calls for a change of how we treat each other. Hate crimes against anyone whether it be for race,orientation, or gender is NOT OK.  The suspects in this case were teens at the time. It's important that we partner with organizations that are against hate. We also should teach our children, the future generation the opposite of hate--love!
