Student Film: The Scout

I am so excited to announce I have written and will be directing a short film that will be shooting come January! YAY! Currently we are in pre-production, a crew has been appointed, and  auditions are underway.  I intend to enter the finished product in film festivals this Spring/Summer. 

The funds raised will go towards: 

- Costumes
- Props 
- Location rental/insurance (if necessary)
Technical equipment (e.g. lighting, editing software, tripod/steady cam tools). Recently, filmmakers--both amateur and professional--have begun using iPhone footage in both feature-length and short films (the future is here, my friends!) due to its high quality lens. We will be filming on the latest iPhone utilizing various accessories made for filmmakers using this platform, such as certain apps and microphone/lighting add-ons that will create a more cinematic feel (not to mention a more user friendly filming experience.)
- Kraft services (2 days of filming, plus 1 production meeting with all cast/crew present) 

As this is my first official filmmaking endeavor, I appreciate any financial support I can get no matter the size. Truly, anything you can offer will help. 

I am so grateful for the incredibly talented cast and crew that are volunteering their time to be a part of this project! We are so excited to bring this story to life and would like it to look the best it possibly can! This is my favorite script I've ever worked on and  I hope that the audience enjoys viewing it as much as I did writing it (and I'm sure that I will have making it!). 

Your donations of any size will assist myself and our cast/crew in obtaining the essential hands-on experience and ability to creatively collaborate necessary for work in the film/TV industry. 


FILM SYNOPSIS: When a ruthless but childish gangster discovers a girl scout witnessed her commit a crime while out selling cookies, she is forced to strike up a deal to protect her business with this confident, clever young girl. A quirky, charming  film reminiscent of Wes Anderson, this satirical short reminds us age is but a number!
