An Equality Documentary

What is equality? Those of us who've experienced discrimination, hate, and violence can tell you in simple language what it is. That's the goal of this documentary.

I'm an award-winning filmmaker who began this equality documentary prior to the pandemic. It was stalled due to the pandemic and I want to continue the quest. I need your help to do this. The money will be used for quality sound equipment and for a longer (larger) lens for interviews. The sound equipment needed for socially distanced interviews is a little expensive for wireless microphones, receivers, and cabling. I need good sound quality to do this since some of the interviews can't be done in close quarters and can't use microphones attached to the camera. Wireless remotes and a longer lens will allow me to keep myself and the interviewees safe and to lower the risk of infection with COVID-19 for them and myself. I will use a longer lens to get closer shots but be able to remain farther away from the interviewees.

I need the funding before summer 2021 begins so that I can continue and finish this film during my vacation days. I'm passionate about making this documentary considering the things that have transpired over the past few years--mass shootings, hate crimes, police murders, and beatings, trans people hate and violence against trans people, and other discriminatory acts against "protected" groups whose voices deserve to be heard. This is an important film to make and one that needs to be made.

I would greatly appreciate your help in making this film a reality. Let's see if we can bring some power to those affected most by discriminatory behaviors, practices, and attitudes. This film's goal is to show that we are all created equal and equality is what we deserve and not something that we have to earn.
