Kay's Junior Thesis Film

"When a high school classroom goes on lockdown, one teacher and her students must decide whether or not to unlock the door for a missing student. "

Hello all!

I'm so excited to announce that I have begun pre-production on my USC School of Cinematic Arts' thesis film, "Locked". To make this short film a reality, I'm going to need all the help I can get!

If you have any extra money to spare (or have ever considered buying me an early birthday/Christmas/graduation present), please donate what you can. Anything is INCREDIBLY appreciated! I cannot make this movie without support from family and friends like you. 

Any donation will earn a "Special Thanks" at the end of the film, as well as an invitation to the premiere, AND a named thank you in my future Academy Award acceptance speech (i.e. "I would like to thank everyone who made this possible, such as [INSERT YOUR NAME HERE]). 

As a kid who moved to LA to start making movies, this is everything I've been working towards. Please consider helping in any way you can!

Much love,
