Hello supporters!

I trust all of you had a nice Thanksgiving.

Good news! I would like to update all of you that we have finally completed production of our movie, The Shattered Mind since July 20, 2013. We have exhausted $19,000 just to make the film. Unfortunately, we need more money to complete the postproduction. We are doing another crowdfunding via Kickstarter.

I have bad news. As for your rewards, you will not receive them any time soon until April 2015 because we are not done with the film. If you'd like a tax-exempted letter before December 31st, please let me know.

More good news for you! I will be attending Sundance Film Festival from January 16-23 with the rough cut of the movie in hope to shop for viable investors. There's no way in hell I can do that in front of a computer. It's too exhausting and time consuming. I almost lost head doing that! It's insane! I need to NETWORK, network, network and sell myself over there. It's the only way.

Check out my current crowdfunding via Kickstarter. There's a new video of me on it!
Please share it. I'd appreciate it.

If you have any question, please do not hesitate to reach me via email Thank you and happy holidays.

Peace, joy and blessings,

Learn why I need your support for The Shattered Mind!


Logline: THE SHATTERED MIND is a 30-minute short film that explores a black deaf family's journey while their daughter struggles to overcome adversity, hearing loss, and brain trauma.  (Read article interview from (UK)  & view clip of staged reading.) 

My name is Jade.  I am a Deaf filmmaker living in Manhattan, NY raising funds for a short film.  We're raising funds for production location rental costs, (ESPECIALLY rental property and production insurance for schools, classrooms, houses, hospitals, and an audiology center, which are the main locations) for our short film, THE SHATTERED MIND

I love making stuff up and turning them into reality. I consider myself to be an imaginative storyteller. You see, the film I want you to support is part true, part fiction. When I was a little girl, I suffered from a concussion and as result of it, I became deaf. So, I thought, why not take some of that experience and mix it up and turn it into a movie. After all, that's what makes a great screenwriter, right? 

We're doing everything we can to minimize the costs for these locations because we are producing a high-quality material on a shoestring budget. There is a saying, "NOTHING IS FREE." The more we raise, the better. This is an all-or-nothing fundraising campaign effort.

       On location at Drip Cafe for Hear My Own Tune.
Our production is slated for filming in mid-June. We've raised over $17,500 so far and our production budget is $20K. 

One of our crowdfunding campaigns via GoFundMe was successful and we raised $7,240 for our film. This one is our 2nd stretch fundraising! We will do 3rd one for postproduction in the near future. Please click on our 1st stretch fundraising campaign via  GoFundMe to see more details from that site.

We're shooting on a RED ONE camera. While we are raising funds, we are preparing for our production! We have several goals attached to this project. We plan to submit the movie to several film festivals. Join the revolution and please select your perks!

Please note: THE SHATTERED MIND (DVD copy) will be available when it is released in home video (after our film festival circuit). We will let you know when we release the movie trailer. As for your perks and digital download of the movie, they will be available to you in the fall sometimes October- November of 2013. (Postage fee may be required.)


A passion project from the very beginning, our team consists of diverse and talented storytellers, who all strongly believe in the story. We are working toward getting A-list stars attached.
