Support #LGBT films made by #LGBT filmmakers
LOST IN TIME is a feature film directed by Emmy Award winning filmmaker KATHERINE BROOKS and stars JILL HENNESSY (Crossing Jordan, Law & Order) in a film that has already received critical acclaim (release is set for late Summer 2019) for its genre-defying blend of both narrative and documentary styles spanning over a decade.
May 26, 2019 before sharing the films story, I wanted to express my gratitude to my LGBT community and to those who support my continuous efforts to change the bull shit ways in which we are portrayed in most TV shows and films. And because of your support I will continue to create movies with strong characters that are both original and universal which ultimately creates no division between us and “them” and equality will be truly felt for us all. #LGBTfansdeservebetter
Now on with the sbow....
Based on true events that occurred during the 2004 Asia quake, one of the worst natural disasters in human history, the story explores survival, human connection and the complex connection between a Psychiatrist pushed beyond reason when her patient defies logic by being one of the 280,000 killed in a tsunami.
The film was shot in New Orleans and Thailand and was financed by over 1000+ people using crowdfunding and is committed to not only remaining authentic in its Independence but also giving a positive and hope filled story to the LGBT community.
Doing all the marketing and publicity the small team behind this film is humbled by the support of those who believe in true Independent film driven by heART and a commitment to quality films that inspire HOPE in the darkest of times.
As a thank you, backers will have their names in the end credits under special thanks, view behind the scenes and have access to the private facebook page to view clips as well as be able to see the movie online before the public premier in the late summer of 2019.

I trust this update will explain my silence over the past few years. I’m not sure how much information any of you may have (if any), but for those of you who know nothing of my situation, I finally feel safe enough to share. For the last six years, I’ve had to deal with the terrifying and escalating behavior of a stalker. Finally, that stalker is in jail.
I want to be blunt. The past two years has completely stunted me. I was unable to share anything about my situation over the Internet (and when I did, I paid greatly for it), because my email, and any new email I created, would be hacked by my stalker. This is the reason no one’s heard much from me, and what’s worse is that no one’s seen much of me either.
I’ve been isolated, unable to make public appearances for fear of my stalker harming me or the people I care about and love. I ended up having to put my movie on hold and wasn’t even able to attend my own test screening in New Orleans, and all the while, could tell no one. I basically had to swallow my pride and realize that, to most colleagues and friends, I appeared as an undependable flake. I couldn’t defend myself, couldn’t explain, but now I can.
Last month, this Person came onto my property and physically attacked me, and while this was truly one of the worst experiences of my life, her actions gifted me with the opportunity to finally put her in jail, gain a permanent restraining order, and have her deported.
The PTSD of daily harassment and attacks affected my work greatly, but I never gave up. It’s been a paralyzing and lonely experience but has finally, thankfully, come to an end. I am getting my life back and creating one filled with more than I could ever imagine.
I had so much anger for so long, and it was making me sick. I had to turn this silent solitude into something positive, because I refused to allow someone else to control my destiny. So, for the past forty months, three filmmakers lived on my farm and captured the lengthy, inspiring, soul shifting process of accomplishing what I believed impossible. I transformed my barn into a post-production facility where I would complete, on my own, the post of LOST IN TIME. My last feature film had a post team of 37 people so you can imagine (well let’s just say 158,591 files and nine programs later.... With all crowdfunding money used, and all savings drained, this documentary THE LAST ARTIST captured the resurrection of true artistry and is a tribute to a seemingly dying genre - the independent film.
So, not only was the impossible made possible, but this nightmare birthed another creation: and this feature-length documentary will be released with LOST IN TIME.
heART is the source of it all and the true healer and I can’t wait to share these two films with you. And even if you thought I was lost or dead or whatever, I want you to know I’m here, I’m inspired and open and ready to connect with other truth-seekers tired of all the bullshit and can come together and create for the sake of love and healing and sacred collaboration. That’s why I’m here, and I confess all this in hopes of connecting with others who share in this belief.
This is not a pat on the back for myself. It’s my truth. I survived, and if I learned anything, it is this: turn the power button off. Get to know yourself, and find your tribe. Find your family, the people who stick by you, and fuck the rest. And don’t make assumptions about people cause you really don’t know what they’re going through and stay clear of people who talk shit about others it is such a drag to be around. Life is too precious to waste TIME with people who are not kind. And to my tribe, the handful of people who never gave up on me and never bought into the bull shit, You all are the real deal, and now that my solitude is over, you’re the ones I want standing next to me.

Kat: I'm curious how many hours a day have you been working on this? A suggestion for you. Team: listen in on this idea. I noticed over 600 supporters. If everyone donated $15 you would have your goal and a little extra. Often our best base of support are the ones that are already on the team. New team members are great too, but less likely you would get 400 new supporters in the short term. So I suggest you share my idea with the team / family, if you think it will help. Message to team/family: No doubt Kat has been working round the clock to finish the movie. The additional funding is needed to sprint to the finish. If we all act together as one big unit of support we can raise the rest needed in a very short period of time, even just day!! So let's all amaze Kat and at the same time give her the gift of a giant sigh of relief and jam her inbox with hundreds of donations. All it takes is $15 each. If you can't do $15, do what you can. If you can do more do that. It will all even out. Have a great day everyone.
Katherine, The true measure of a great movie, therin lies with the capacity to not only tell a story, but to infuse it with great emotion. An emotion that transfers itself consuming the soul of the viewer and transporting them to the deepest part of the writer's soul. With what I have seen, this story has the potential to go above and beyond those expectations. Music adds to the emotional infusion, and with your love of music, well, let's just say, it is a pleasure to help be a part of something great!
I cannot come up with high enough praise for you - Kat, your work, the film & more (can't even come up with those words). Hopefully you can feel the depth from us. It would be such an honor to meet you in person one day - just wish there was a miracle for the premiere, but seeing Lost In Time (online or however) will be it's own reward! Much love. ♥
