Two years ago, during my screen writing class, I came up with the idea for a short film about a detective searching for a missing little girl. While on the case he is not only confronted by a current physical obstacle, but also by emotional obstacles from his past. He must overcome both to find this little girl, and restore himself.
I wrote the script years ago and have been perfecting it with the hopes of one day having the opportunity to bring it to life. Now, my dream has become a reality.
My cohort, and good friend, Anthony Matos and I are currently senior film production majors at Southern Adventist University. We are enrolled in one of our final film courses, Senior Project. For the class project, Anthony and I created this short film, "You Can't Save Everyone".
With myself as the Writer/Director, and Anthony as the Executive Producer/Editor, we are now in the final stages of production of this film which has the potential to not only earn us an "A" in Senior Project, but also change our lives.
Using our own savings and working with a crew comprised of other film students from Southern, we have worked really hard and diligently to complete production of "You Can't Save Everyone". Now, what we are asking is for any donation to assist us with the post-production process. The money would go towards the following:
Finishing off paying the actors
Film Festival Application Fees (Sonscreen Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Chattanooga Film Fest, etc.)
We hope to have the film completed by March 5, 2018
Benefits of donations:
Up to $20.00 = Personal thank you from the writer and producer & A special mention in the credits.
Up to $50.00 = Personal thank you, Mention in the credits, & An exclusive copy of You Can't Save Everyone.
Up to $100.00 or more = Personal thank you, Mention in the credits, Exclusive copy of the film, & A personal invitation to a private screening of You Can't Save Everyone in Atlanta, GA. (Meet the cast, crew, Q & A, and more.)
Before we started this project, I told Anthony that I wanted to make a film that not only our families, but also the both us could be proud of. This will be the final mark that we make on the film program at school. Four plus long years of art school: everything we've learned, we've put into practice, and have tried to master, summed up into one final project. I truly believe that we have done that very thing! We ask is that you support us in any way that you can.
Thank you in advance for your consideration, and support, and possible. Anthony and I are very grateful. Also be sure to check out and like the You Can't Save Everyone Facebook page!
