Sign the Show - documentary

$8,448 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 141 people in 12 months
My entire life I have taken for granted my access to entertainment in all forms, but especially music, comedy and theater.  

Almost three years ago, when as the hip kids say, I got 'woke', I started a journey to highlight the challenges Deaf individuals face when trying to access live entertainment -- and they face a lot of them.  

This documentary is to provide awareness, connection and hopefully the exact same access to entertainment for Deaf people as hearing people have had all along.

But I can't do this alone.  I need your help.

I am thrilled to release Strong Brew Productions trailer for Sign the Show: Deaf Culture, Access & Entertainment in hopes of securing funding as I move into post-production, which includes editing, captioning, sound engineering, licensing, and so much more!

I need your contribution now, as editing begins in 2 weeks.  Will you join me in this endeavor and take part in this dream of mine -- to provide equal and open access to Deaf individuals and to let comedy and music connect all cultures, no matter our background - Deaf or hearing?

We have reached over 200k views of the trailer... if each person that watched donated just 25 cents we would have surpassed our fundraising goal. Will you consider sharing the trailer and making a donation to the campaign to be a part of a movement toward open access for all? #ItTakesAVillage #SignTheShow #DeafCulture #Access #Entertainment #Music #Comedy #Theatre

In large part thanks to all of you, the trailer for Sign The Show: Deaf Culture, Access & Entertainment has been viewed over 110k times!

If you've watched it and been inspired or educated, I urge you to donate $1. No amount is too small and no amount is too large! Every dollar, and I really mean that, goes a long way in helping me fund my film.

I've poured my heart, spirit, and life savings into this project and now I'm asking for help. Will you help? Will you share? Will you donate? It truly takes a village. Please, be a part of my village.

With gratitude and love always,
Cat

I'm almost at my first goal of $5k and would love to reach it by Friday, April 21st, which happens to be my birthday.

If you've already donated, please consider sharing with your friends, colleagues, family... every dollar gets me that much closer to a final cut of this film!
