Kindred Creatures Documentary

“Kindred Creatures” is a feature length documentary exploring the personalities and ways of life of animals used in animal agriculture. The documentary explores these animals’ personalities, the bonds they share with humans, and impactful stories of their rescue. Kindred Creatures also highlights farm animal sanctuaries and the wonderful work they do to help victims of animal agriculture and neglect.

The end result is to leave the viewers with a positive and hopeful outlook. Ultimately, the goal is to have the  audience meet who it is that goes into the making of their food.

These are stories and animals that are so close to my heart. It is my dream to make this film but I cannot do it without your help.

The film has shot with Spring Farm Sanctuary, Farmaste Sanctuary, Rooster Redemption & Chicken Run Rescue in Minnesota, as well as Soulspace Sanctuary in Wisconsin. 

Mercy For Animals, Direct Action Everywhere, Christine Coughlin of the Humane Society, Cam F. Awesome, J. Selby’s, & vegan chef AmyLeo Barankovich also showcase their voices in the film.

I will be using the funds raised on GoFundMe to help get the production of the film finished. Our $7,000 goal is enough to make that happen. The funds will help cover some of the costs that come with making a feature film: music licensing, equipment costs, graphics/logos, festival submission fees, lawyer costs, GoFundMe fees, final trips to Minnesota, insurance, etc. This film cannot get made without your help! The sooner I get funding, the sooner I can finish shooting/editing and make an imact for these animals.  

Anyone who donates with their email will be signed up for the Kindred Creatures newsletter which will have updates on the film, exclusive behind the scenes photos, and videos.

I have been editing a ton and the film is looking great! A time-line for completion of the film would be the beginning/middle of 2019. I will do premieres in North Dakota, Minneapolis, & Los Angeles. I will then submit it to festivals around the country and do a public release after the festival premieres.

The animals need us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you so much for the help you provide along the way. It means the world to me knowing there are others who want to make an impact in the lives of animals.
