Still We Rise
Hello, I am Jermaine Thomas of Taishi Studios Films.
This is an unprecedented time in our nation. COVID-19 has changed the way we live.
I am a documentary filmmaker who aspires to create a film that examines how we are dealing with this crisis and to show the strength of the human spirit. This film will focus on three things:
1. How we are surviving and/or thriving, in spite of all that is going on.
2. That we are looking out for one another, despite what we might see on social media.
3. Educating people on what this virus is and how we can "Still Rise!"
We know it is a difficult time to have a fundraising campaign. That is why we are putting most of our own funds into this project. However, additional financing is needed to cover the cost of making sure our crew is safe. We are asking you to give whatever you can. Whether it's $1.00 or $5.00, it will help. We will need protective gear for everyone. We also want to have a nurse present to make sure we are taking all necessary precautions. We also want to document the stories of everyday people. So if you are interested in being part of our film do the following:
We appreciate your support.
