Software for the creative soul

In the mid 80's I started developing software to help artists use computers to fulfill their dreams and visions of making film. Today, megacorporations rule the landscape, but today we independent developers are still fulling innovation, but there's not always time to spend on raising funds too.

My development laptop died and with the chip shortage, a replacement is unfeasible. I am asking for help to keep going. I'm a filmmaker and write software and tell stories. I'm not a salesman. I would like to continue contributing to the amazing digital world that exists today, but I need help.
