What is PTSD?

 PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) is closely related to military life and the stress that our troops endure during times of war.  But it can affect anyone that has gone through a traumatic event(s).  The brain rewires itself to sense danger, fear, and anxiety even when you are not in a harmful situation.  People with PTSD have different ‘triggers’.  For me, ONE of my triggers is the further I get away from an exit, my heart starts pounding as I get tunnel vision while my legs start to feel like they weigh 500 lbs. each, and my brain is not sure what it wants to do.  I feel like I’m going to throw up, pass out, or both. 

Before I had PTSD, I was able to enjoy anything and everything that life had to offer.  Now I can no longer do certain things, and enjoy certain aspects of life because it causes me to have SEVERE anxiety.  A lot of times, people who don’t have it, have a tough time understanding what I’m going through because it’s not something that can physically be seen.  People who do have it, have a tough time talking about it not only because they are trying to figure it out for themselves, but it also takes a huge toll on us mentally, which literally causes physical exhaustion.

 What is PTSD the original series?

 This is a narrative show (scripted, not a documentary) based on true events.  It follows a versatile list of characters, through different walks of life, as they struggle to hold their lives together after developing PTSD.  Also, showing the strain it has on the relationships with the loved ones around them, who are trying to understand what they are going through.  This campaign has been started in order to fund the pilot episode.  Once filmed, we have a distributor ready to help us put it on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.  Our hope is that, with enough interest from you (the viewers), one of those will want to pick up the series for the rest of Season One.

 What is our GOAL?

 The reason we are so passionate about getting this show made, is because it helps shed a light on something that affects roughly 24 million Americans on a daily basis.  We want to help others see that they are not alone in this fight, and there are people ready to help them, not only figure out what they are going through, but to also see a life worth living.  In doing this, we are going to donate 10% of EVERY episodes budget to non-profit organizations that deal with helping people who are battling PTSD.

 Investors

 If you would like to invest in this series, there is a minimum ‘buy-in’ for the pilot episode that will secure you as an Executive Producer for the length of the shows run.  You may contact me through email to discuss your interest level and the terms of investment.

 Our ‘Thank You’.

 For anyone that donates $50 or more, we will be sending you one of the two shirts pictured below (just tell us which one, your size, and where to send it to).  These shirts will ONLY be available to those that donate.  (so if/when this show is successful, you will have a collectible on your hands!).  For EVERYONE that donates ANY amount, we will be sending you a link to the pilot episode to watch before it goes up on the streaming services.

 

NOT A DIME IS SPENT UNTIL WE ARE FULLY FUNDED.  So help us bring this show to all of you.  Every donation counts!  Spread the word and give this a share!

Wether it's $5, $50, or $500, it all adds up....help us keep the ball rolling. We won't be spending a dime until it's completely funded....so we can't even start preproduction until we hit our goal.
