My name is Peyton Shahan and I am the writer and director of my senior thesis film called Broken. I am a senior at George Mason University majoring in Film and Video Studies. This is my final film project and the culmination of my time here at Mason. 

Broken is a dramatic short film about Jay, a lonely and depressed young girl with a troubled past who finds herself hopelessly drifting without a home. Along her journey she meets a group of young runaways that take her in. She quickly learns that Bradley, Ryder, and Nathan's lives are just as complicated as hers. As she gets to know them, she connects with them on a new level and ends up finding a home that she never thought she would have. This story reveals the harsh reality of mental illness, neglect, abuse, self-harm, homelessness, and death. This story means so much to me as Jay is a reflection of myself. As I suffer from anxiety and depression, I want to show the world what it can be like through this film. 

It will feature music from Rock Bass, an up and coming indie rock band that has agreed to provide the soundtrack for my film. Thanks to Canon Fazenbaker, their music will perfectly blend together the hardships these young adults face with the humor and love that gets them through it. 

All of the money that I raise will be going directly into the film. It will be used for food for 3 days for my crew of 20 people, costume, props, permits, equipment, and film festival fees. I appreciate anything that you are willing to give. Please share this with your friends to get the word out. Thank you so much for your contribution!
