Pirates of the Odyssey Miniseries Funding

My name is Michael LaShon Everhart, AA., BA, and CEO of Artsy Latte Productions LLC. Having recently graduated from Valdosta State University and completing my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, I decided to take the year off to pursue another passion of mine. I am a one-woman production house with a few loyal friends to help me keep moving things along. Throughout high school and college, I spent an outrageous amount of my free time writing stories. Along with scripts, scenes, short films, animations and things of such nature. I found myself engulfed by all my ideas. For a very long time all I’ve wanted to do is create various productions. As life would have it though, my responsibilities come first. I was a student athlete for 10 years playing basketball throughout college; however; I found before my senior year, I knew that my body could no longer meet the strenuous physical demands to sustain a colligate athlete career.
I relocated to Valdosta and worked a restaurant job while I finished my senior year. Although I had suffered a great loss by not being able to play basketball at the college level anymore, I quickly found the light at the end of the tunnel. For the past year I had a name locked into my head for what I wanted to call my production company. The name Artsy Latte Productions embodied the vision that I had for the works of art I wanted to create. Our five core words are: Eclectic, Smooth, Freedom, Alluring, and Humble. Through Artsy Latte Productions, that is what I strive to captures in my films. I decided that I would take this year off to push through the production of my first animated miniseries. I’ve been working with a great artist and voice actors who are all very excited about this project.
This brings us to the GoFundMe campaign!
The money donated to Artsy Latte Productions will pay for equipment, artist fees, and production cost. With Pirates of the Odyssey: Voyage to Calypso being the pioneer project for us, we are working to put our best foot forward and make sure the production is done with care and professionalism. All donations will be put towards growing Artsy Latte Productions and creating future short films and miniseries.
My goal with Artsy Latte Productions is to build the brand to where I can compete in international film festivals and eventually moving into streaming. Please help support Artsy Latte Productions.
Lastly, here is an excerpt from “Pirates of the Odyssey!” Thank you very much for your financial support!
Pirates of the Odyssey is the fictional tale of young Captain Tahani Marrone of the Pirate ship the Odyssey. Left to her by her father, Tahani has assumed command of the ship after her father Giovanni’s death. Over the next two years Tahani has transformed her father’s simple merchant ship into a great galleon meant to pirate the seven seas. Earning respect as a captain is hard enough, but will Tahani be able to put fear into the eyes of her enemies being a woman captain? On our epic tale of the Odyssey’s first collection of stories we will follow our crew on a voyage to Ogygia, the island of the nymph goddess Calypso. Along the way Captain Tahani Marrone will have to bargain with gypsy’s, Out run the queen of England, and make the most heartbreaking choice of her life. Assisted by her crew of travelers Captain Tahani Marrone will set sail into the epic adventure drama of the Pirates of the Odyssey…
