Documentary Equipment

Love has no boundaries when I think of my son, and his choice to have a positive effect in our society. Nate is a humanitarian and a talented, skilled filmmaker. His love of filmmaking started in the sixth grade. He is a graduate of the New York Film Academy. Just after wrapping up a comedy pilot "Quarter Life Crisis" tragedy struck. Nate was in a car accident in which a man died and Nate was sentenced to prison. While there he realized there is great need for change. The goal is to fund a film camera and an IMac for editing for Nate’s documentary.

As mass incarceration continues to rise there is a need to begin his documentary Handcuffed To Freedom which will provide insight as an ex-con re-enters into society. Exploring the need for programs and policy change for successful reintegration and to reduce recidivism will be addressed. Join me in making a positive change and bring my son’s gifted talent to the screen. I am so grateful for your donation. Donor names will be on the documentary credits. Nathaniel is thankful, and you are important
