'Birth Date' Short Film

Hello Family, Friends, and Fellow Creators,

We are a group of students studying Film and Television production at California State University, Northridge. We represent a program that has been named in the Top 25 Film/TV schools in the nation and has recently received acknowledgements and donations towards upgraded studios from The Hollywood Foreign Press Association. We are going to work hard to uphold the reputation. In order to create a successful production and see our short film reach its full potential, we are asking for help in donations. Anything and everything will be greatly appreciated. 

We are more than willing to answer any questions you might have.

Below is a detailed description of our short film, and how your donation will help us.


Connor - a social reject accused of stalking a girl - orders a product to grow his own perfect soulmate. After failing to read the fine print, Connor must go on a date with a classmate blackmailing him, all while caring for a newborn baby in his backpack.

Statement from the Director:

"I’ve always loved movies — I started on the acting and dancing side of things though. It wasn’t until high school, I met some friends and we started making videos together for fun. I went to Providence High School and was lucky enough to be in the Media Focus program where I began to exercise and strengthen this part of myself. Our projects were small and for fun but eventually landed us some spots in some pretty big festivals. We won the Los Angeles Student Media Festival twice and competed in the All American High School Film Festival in New York. I’ve been lucky enough to not only find art, but to find myself in it. This is what my life is meant for. No matter where it takes me, anyway I can be a part of it, I will be pushing forward. Please join me on my next leap." – P.C.
