"Don't Panic" is an existential comedy about a group of teenagers in their final days in high school. Written, directed, produced, and starring college students looking to enter the film industry -- this story is more than just another college project. 

Filming for this production team's first feature film begins directly after the semester ends (May) and goes into the remainder of the summer (August). With the donations, the production team will aquire equipment for filming and props for the shoot. All funds raised will be applied directly to the cost of producing the best quality film. 

Any donation amount will be greatly appreciated and will have a definite impact on the final product. 

Thank you so much!

Hey guys! We have 3 days left of filming, isn't that wild? It has been a lot of work but it has gone so well!! We are so excited to share it with all of y'all! After we finish here in Wilton, we start editing. After editing, we start submitting to film festivals! We want to be able to have Don't Panic seen by as many people as possible, but unfortunately, they cost money.

All of our friends and family have been SO incredibly generous. Thank you to all of the donors and the community of Wilton, Connecticut who have provided locations, food, and people. This project has been a dream come true for all the people involved. With a little more help, we would be able to have our hard work seen by as many people as possible.

Thank you all so much. Don't Panic would be nothing without you.

Much love,
Genevieve Scott, Producer

Hello!

It's been about a month since we started this campaign and we are making so much progress! Since we started the campaign we have decided to shorten the 90 page feature length script to a 50 page short film script. With the shortened script, the money donated will go farther.

Additionally, we have started the casting process. So far we have a few actors solidified and are in the process of auditioning for the ensemble of main and supporting actors. Everything is coming together so well thanks to the donations we have already received!

As always, a donation of any amount would go so so far to contribute to our project! Please share with your family and friends as well!

Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do to support the arts and young, independent filmmakers!

Until next time,
Genevieve Scott, Producer
