My name is Henry McCants and I am a current High School Junior set to graduate in 2019. I am an honors student (ranked in the top ten percent of my class), community volunteer and an enthusiastic filmmaker. When I am not studying, you can often find me making short films with friends or working on amateur productions as it is my life long goal to study film in college and pursue a career in filmmaking.
I have recently been accepted into the prestigious Tisch Summer Filmmakers Academy at New York University. This world renowned 4-week summer program brings together a small select group of students from across the globe to live on campus and learn the hands on techniques that go into making films from actual professionals. Naturally I am very honored to be selected for such a competitive program and excited to learn at NYU, which has one of the top film programs in the world. However, unfortunately due to the expense of the program I will not be able to attend unless I raise money. I live in a single parent household with a sister in college, so we do not have any extra income to put toward this opportunity.
I am looking to raise $12,609 to cover tuition ($8,472), housing & board ($2,380) and fees ($1,757). My initial deposit of $2,000 to hold my spot in the program is due by March 20 and the remainder of the balance is due shortly after. I really appreciate your donations to help me realize this once in a lifetime opportunity. Thank you so much!!!
Any and every donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for getting me one step closer to reaching my goal!
