THE NARRATIVE CAMPAIGN
(Produced by All The Way Up Productions)
My name is J Kristopher and this is my fundraiser.
I'm an aspiring producer from Texas. I moved to Los Angeles to become an actor. Along the way I've done some great projects but something kept nagging me to do MORE. It wasn't enough to simply tell stories. I had to find a way to make this world a better place. If the election taught us anything, WE ARE A COUNTRY DIVIDED.
It's been on heart to create a show which centers around HUMANITY. I believe the media tells us one thing about each other but we NEED OUR OWN VOICE. We need a DOCUSERIES based around everyday people. We need to get to know each other better. So I've created a LEGACY piece which I believe is a great start to RECONCILATION. We need to get back to LOVING THY NEIGHBOR and this series is going to be a great start.
I've recruited some of the best people in the industry. Emmy Award winning producers. TOP OF THE LINE CREW. People who have chosen to donate their time or radically reduce their normal pay to make this project happen. We've come up with a budget of $50,000 which will cover most of our expenses. We will shoot 2021. Safe conditions. COVID PROOF. I believe this is going to be MAJOR.
SINCE THIS IS FOR THE COMMUNITY, I'm asking for a community outreach. Please share this campaign with your family and friends so we can make this happen. We are off to a good start and every dollar helps. Thank you for reading. Please see below for the first episodes we will shoot. One is already in the can out of my own pocket but we need money for the rest.
Thanks in advance for your support!
THE NARRATIVE SEASON 1 is an 8 part DOCU-SERIES chronicling the lives of stigmatized groups. We will get first-hand accounts from the people who live in and around these stories:
Black Men Unmasked (Pilot episode) Currently in post-production.
Human Trafficking Survivors
Social Media Influencers: The Cost of Beauty
This is just a look at the first season of many. We will tell the stories of everyone who needs to share. It is our hope, THE NARRATIVE turns into a lasting legacy where all of us can gain an understanding of each other.
We are looking for a $10 commitment from 5,000 people. These donations will cover all expenses allocated for production cost including locations, working crew, equipment rentals, catering services, film insurance, licensing additional footage, and post-production. Please donate what you can, and share the campaign with friends, family, & colleagues.
