Evelyn Eleven Productions first film

This year I wrote a short film, started a production company and filmed a trailer for the film with the help of a talented team of individuals. 
I am working hard, wearing many hats, trying to make the entire short film, but I need $$ in order to do that. The trailer was made because of generous volunteers who wanted to help me make this film and from me paying for things out of pocket.
Now I want to be able to complete the film and submit it to festivals, but I want to be able to pay my cast and crew for their work. As artists, we do so much unpaid work but we have so much to offer and should be compensated for the work we put in. 
The short film is called Good Night, Sleep Tight and is about a couple in Toronto that gets bed bugs. Having gone through a bed bugs infestation myself in 2013, I wanted to turn that nightmare summer of my life into a comedic film. This film is for anyone who has ever had bed bugs or a bed bugs scare, or has known someone that has had bed bugs - so everyone. 
My production company is named after my two grandmothers Evelyn and Evelyn and the number of years I have been living and working as an actor in Toronto.
Evelyn Eleven Productions. 

Acting is a highly competitive career, and there just aren't enough roles for all of the actors in Toronto, so I've chosen to make my own work. 
I'm excited to see where this production company goes and where this film goes, but I can't get there without your help. 

Thank you for reading my story, I hope that you will make a contribution to help this film succeed. 
Please know how grateful I am for your generosity. 
Thank you,
Love Karen Scobie
