Before You Forget: the video

$2,350 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 48 people in 21 months
I am producing a short video to show the story behind Before You Forget , my YA novel about a year 12 art student dealing with her father's diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease. It also features a naughty Jack Russell called Hecta :) The novel's release date: 30 January 2017. 

The video will feature my daughter, her artwork, and selected excerpts from the novel.  The aim is for two things:
1)to educate on younger onset Alzheimer's and create a window of empathy to those living with it, and
2) to encourage young people (especially) to channel their negative experiences into something expressive and positive (like the creative arts).

The money will be used solely to pay the talented young creatives (director, editor, sound designer, colour grader, gaffer, cinematographer) who have already committed to the project. They are passionate about making the best quality, artistic product possible. The director is 25 year old Kori Reay-Mackey, who you can read about here .

If you would like your name on the video credits, please let me know: I would be delighted to acknowledge your contribution.

Our launch date will be mid-February.

With gratitude in advance,

Julia

Hi good people, thank you for the great kick-off! Have edited the description so you can see the array of young creatives involved. (Writing, compared to film making, definitely requires less outlay!) x
