Support Making Bill's Movie

Tax deductible
Creating a documentary film to share Theophilus Brown: a gay American transformative Artist, Musician, Soldier and Storyteller with the world.

My name is Allen Wood, and I am the director of “Theophilus,” an homage to the artist William Theophilus Brown. My life has forever been enriched by the time I spent with William “Bill” Theophilus Brown, so I wanted to make this film to tell the remarkable story of his life, preserve his legacy, and share his great gifts as a raconteur, artist, and inspiring individual.

But making a film is costly, and right now, we need your help. As of this writing, we still need to raise funds for clearing copyrights, scoring the film, and completing the final edits.

​Don’t let Theophilus’s amazing story disappear—please donate today and help us bring this important film to life. Bill's film is being made by a 501(c)3 organization called ArtLife Productions, therefore all donations are fully tax deductible.
