Maraschino Cherry-Short Film

My name is Teija, I’m a film director from California and I’m trying to prepare my reel of films. I finished writing my first short film “Maraschino Cherry” after months of writers block. This film follows a girl who can’t find the purpose to her sinister ways, and comes upon a writer who tells her that he’s the biggest help she can get. I planned on starting post production and start the shoot this year. Using the funds from a paid internship to was my saving grace into finishing this. Due to the coronavirus, I lost the internship and I no longer have the funds for this film. 
Being a film director is all I want in this life, and now I no longer have the opportunity to fund my first film. 
I only ask for $600 because that’s the amount I would’ve been getting from the internship. I’m using my other talented friends as resources for music, costume design, makeup etc.
Thank you so much to any of you that decide to help. ❤️
