"Don't wait around for someone else to tell your story. Do it yourself by whatever means necessary." - Lena Dunham

Everyone has a story but not everyone is willing to tell it. When I finally decided to tell my story, I outlined it, wrote the script, storyboarded it, and cast it all in the same day. This is what I call my Passion project. Passion with a capital "P." After fixing the script, gathering my crew, filming the story, and making the edits, it is now it's time to share the story. 

When I first thought of it, my mindset was that there was nothing I could do about it. It's just a dream and doesn't exist. However, I felt that this dream was worth it so I turned it into a goal, which comes with a plan of action. I would like to submit this short film into as many film festivals around the world as possible. Unfortunately, I'm discovering it is quite costly to share your Passion. Therefore, I am asking if you are willing to help me share.

Each festival ranges from $0 - $80+ and I'm afraid I cannot afford  all the submission fees, DVD costs, and press kit printouts it requires. I am hoping with your help, that this short film will act as a catalyst that will launch me into the right direction. If by some miracle, I am able to raise more than my goal, then I can enter even more festivals! Someday, I'd like to tell a bigger story, more stories. There aren't very many women in filmmaking and I would like to change the game. And who knows? Maybe one day, I'll end up telling YOUR story. Thank you for your time. 

This film is presented by Granny Cart Gangstas.
