A word from Executive Producer Luke Wilson:



EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS TWICE!!

CAMPAIGN UPDATE!


Short Summary

Fifty years after the first American school shooting – When the worst in one man brought out the best in so many others…

TOWER is an independent documentary that presents the untold stories of the witnesses, survivors and heroes of the Tower shootings. Produced by Emmy-nominated filmmakers (University of Texas alums), award-winning Texas Monthly writer Pam Colloff, and Executive Producer Luke Wilson – TOWER has a great team behind it.  Will you join us?

What We Need & What You Get

We need YOUR help to raise $50,000 so we can start production this Spring and complete twenty minutes of edited footage by June 01.  The initial money is always the most difficult money to raise in an independent film, so your support at this point can really propel TOWER forward.

Check out the different perks and packages we’re offering – or take a pass on the perks and know that 100% of your support will go directly to our efforts.

The Impact

This is an unforgettable story about the indomitable spirit of real people who showed incredible strength, courage and humanity in the face of danger. 

We believe that we can change the way that day was remembered and give credit where it's due - to the people who stopped the attack and risked their lives to save strangers.

Please help us make that happen!
