"Treasured" the movie...Pre-production $
I have spoken to hundreds of high school students over the last four years. To my suprise, the students were very intrigued by Treasure's story and learning about domestic violence. Over the last three years I have spoken at celebrity events in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusettes and Georgia to help raise money for domestic violence survivors.What better way to get Treasure's story told then to make it into a feature film. Our target audience is teenagers and women as a learning tool. We strongly believe that this film could potentially save lives and give women the strength and courage to get out of an abusive relationship before its too late.
I have learned a lot about the film industry over the past two years and have met some amazing actors, directors, camera crews etc. I've worked on many movie sets, TV Pilots, web-series and short films as well as taken some expert intensive acting classes. My co-writer and I have taken several months to come up with a solid script for this film. This will be an ultra-low budget SAG film. It is our hopes to raise enough money to start production in May of 2015.
It takes a lot of hours spent to plan everything accordingly to make such a film. From script writing to casting to locations, attorney fees, etc. The list goes on, which is why it is critical we get a head start on raising funds for this film. Any donation will be greatly appreciated it. A percentage of what money is made from sales of our film will be donated back to a non profit organization that helps women safely leave their abusers and empower them to live happy, healthy lives.

Hey. So I'd like to send you my resume. This sounds like an amazing project!!!
Please share on my page http://facebook.com/victims.support/
Just to be clear this campaign is for pre-production costs only, to be able to move forward legally. Our ultimate budget goal for the film is 50k but that will be a different campaign that will launch in the near future. That campaign will include chances to receive different things depending on the amount you donate. For example a signed script by all cast members, a signed DVD, your name to appear in the credits, a chance to be in the film, etc. So please donate what you can for us to get going and kick off this film project. You can contact me directly as well with questions or comments. We will be needing other volunteers as well. There are many things that you can do help firstname.lastname@example.org
