Help “Gentrified” with Post Production Costs

Since launching our GoFundMe "Gentrified" has gained national attention and because of you we were able to premiere two episodes of our series with over 200 friend and family members in attendance! In order to move forward and share our series with the rest of the world we are still in need of additional financial donations. Our new goal will help us cover the following:

1. Sound Mixing

2. Film Festival Submissions 

3. Outstanding post-production costs. 

“We’re all aware of the changes this city is experiencing—and the waves of people of color being forced from the East Side—but statistics only tell so much of the story,” she says. “Until you know someone who is really going through it, you only have a faint idea of how painful this issue is on a personal level.”

"Set in East Austin, the five-part narrative film series follows three black millennials who, in addition to grappling with their newfound status as outsiders within their rapidly transforming neighborhoods, are facing deep-seated personal struggles. "

- David Leffler Austin Monthly Magazine 

Gentrified is a dramatic series that follows the lives of three Black millennials battling to find themselves in a city that is quickly changing. Coretta, a young woman trying to cope with the loss of the only mother figure she's known, while battling to save her generational home. 


Aaron, a newlywed fighting against stereotypes while trying to balance family. 


Dania, a recently outed gay woman working through family trauma, looking for love and a place to call her own.
