Help "The Monster They Made Me" go to festivals!

Donation protected

Hey hey! My name is Victoria Francesca, and I am gathering funds to use when submitting The Monster They Made Me to festivals! In 2008, I became what we now know to be "Twihard," a person obsessed with the Twilight Saga. Then in 2016, I became a Vampire Diaries lover. In 2021, the YouTube channel I co-create for announced that we were producing our own horror films, and it was time to start pitching ideas. With my ever-growing love for vampires paired with my career in filmmaking, I decided to write The Monster They Made Me. Now, here we are today, having directed, edited, and starred in the film, I am finally ready for this story to hit the festival circuit!

The Monster They Made Me is about utter infatuation, heartbreak, looking to others for things you can only find in yourself, and the inner dialogue we all experience in the face of our gravest demons. Every second of production was a labor of love for me, as I have dreamed of playing a vampire for years. So much of this story, the visuals, the music, etc., could blissfully pour out of my heart because of my love for this type of content, and I could not have asked for a better cast & crew to help bring my vision to life.

With your help, I will be able to take this story and the 14-year vampire obsession that inspired it to festivals all over the world.

Submission fees vary, therefore my starting goal is to fundraise $350. All donations help bring me one step closer to my goal; there is no such thing as a donation "too small."

The Monster They Made Me is part of a 3-part film that includes two other short films produced by Crash Content Productions. Fear By The Fire is the complete collection and will also be hitting festivals in its entirety as a comedic horror, anthology style. It already has 6K + views on YouTube!

To all those who have supported me in this creative journey thus far and to all those who donate, from the bottom of my "bloody" heart, THANK YOU! ‍❤️‍

P.S. this is Ian Somerhalder's BTS from The Vampire Diaries!!! :)
