Let's help fund Patrick's new movie

My name is Patrick Sean O'Brien. I am a filmmaker with ALS. 
My 2015 film, "TRANSFATTY LIVES" won the TriBeCa Film Festival Audience Award and  is available  on Netflix and i-Tunes, among others.
It is not uncommon for us to receive letters stating : "your film changed my life."  These reviews and the outpouring of support have been a dream come true. 

But I still dream and long to make films. 

On a snowy night, two years ago, I checked out a local Burlesque show that blew my mind. I knew right there, sitting in my Power wheelchair in the front row, that I had to get this on the big screen.

For my birthday this year, I'd like to raise the money to make this movie! Please consider making a donation and spreading the word. 

All donors will be thanked and included in the credits. 

Thank you!
