Happy Anniversary Short Film

Production Stills!

Hi, my name is Andres Sarmiento and I am the founder and producer of D'Vision Indie Films . We are a small South Florida film production company with a lot of hunger for storytelling.  Our goal is not to only help ourselves, but other people's visions come to life.  

The Story
"Happy Anniversary" is a drama about two individuals, Mark and Stacy,  who are reunited after given circumstances and remind themselves as to where fate has brought them. This is a story about the decisions and sacrifices that we all have to make in the persue of our dreams. Although it may not seem apparent at the time, everything always happens for a reason.

The Campaign
With every great story told, there has been some sort of financial support to back it up. Working from the Indie level, we rely heavily on contributions and sponsorships to help pay for expenses such as crew, location, and etc. By simply taking a few minutes of your time, we'd appreciate any financial support to help this vision come to life.  Another way to contribute is by simply Liking and Sharing this campaign to build more buzz through our community. In the Film Industry, you're only as strong as the team around you.
