Following the production of Back From The Brink: An After War Story, myself and a group of others have decided to start our own production company so we can continue to fund the film as well as start producing another documentary. Our next film is going to focus on women overcoming trauma through surf therapy, shot primarily in Southern California. 

Producing documentaries can be incredibly expensive, but our team has just enough gear, collectively, to get this project off the ground. However, as we move forward with filming we will need to pay for rental equipment, permits, editing software and more. 

Your funds will help pay for Back From The Brink to screen in film festivals across the country as well as fund our next project, which we hope will help raise awareness about the benefits of surf therapy and share the stories of incredible women who are working through their trauma.

If you donate $25 or more we will send you a private link to Back From The Brink so you can view it from the comfort of your own home!
