Besties in NYC

We are raising money for completion of our film, "Besties in NYC" and its related multimedia projects.  The film will be promoted via our disability advocacy magazine, Ability Anyware Digital Quarterly (AADQ), (on the cover and page 5)  (page 11) and our podcast, Ability Anyware Radio,  This reality film is a video journal of 2 young women who are native New Yorker millennials with disabilities living in New York City.   Funds will be used to cover the costs for artists with disabilities, camera operators, and essential workers involved in the film's production, accessibility (captioning, ASL interpreters at intersectional disability events), marketing, distribution, purchasing  of cameras and equipment, software, assistive technology,  timely wheelchair accessible transportation, as well as providing healthy meals to artists and consultants with disabilities actively participating in the planning and shooting of the film.     Donations from socially conscious individuals like you will help these young ladies make it to the big screen and increase representation of women with disabilities in the media!  It will also enable us to enter the project for consideration at film festivals!  Feel good about how you spend your dollars and play an integral role in investing in our human potential!34303122_1541601350224592_r.jpegThe image above this caption is of our Digital Wall of Sponsors.  All Kilobyte sponsors who contribute $1000 will be unveiled on this digital wall on December 3, 2018!  A  kilobyte sponsorship can be achieved individually or with a group of donors contributing (10 sponsors providing $100 each).  Please note that we appreciate all levels of sponsorship.   Sponsor at your comfort level!   Please share this link with your family and friends!
