What It Would Mean to Us...

Your donations will go toward: equipment, craft services (food and water for the cast and crew), festival submission fees, marketing/ad campaign fund, and props/costuming.

Contributing to our project would mean the world to us. In this industry, it is so difficult to make headway. We have put ourselves on the line to make this project, and we need help. 

We have limited opportunities in our community, as funds for film are low. This would give us the opportunity to show people that students are capable, willing and determined. Hopefully, if we do well, funds will be raised in the future for other students. 

Help be a part of our story.

 

If You Can't Help Financially:

Send us an email, and give us your feedback. We would love to know that you support us, even if you cannot financially.
