MY GRITTY DREAM : A New Documentary Series

When I was 5 all I wanted was to be an actor. Twenty years later, that dream hasn't changed.

I tried to give it all up once.
I kept hearing acting was impractical & my career was a joke. So, I believed it.
And those were the darkest days of my life.

But I'm done giving up & giving in.
I'm giving my dreams a second chance.

My Gritty Dream documents the life of Emily Santarsiero, a non-union actor stuck in the suburbs of CT, who's on the brink of pursuing her dreams.

The odds of stardom might be one in a million, but she's putting it all on the line.

Follow this wild journey of rediscovery, passion & terror.

With the help of Central Connecticut State University's Communication Department, Emily has been able to conceive this project. But she has a long way to go!


Funding Goes Toward:

- Filmmaking & Sound Equipment
- Post Production Computer
- Hiring Local Filmmakers 
- Promotional Photography & Marketing
- Editing Software

Thank you all for your love & support!

Emily xoxo
