News Item: Hollywood needs your help
Displaying 1 - 1 of 1 -- Add News
I know it has been forever since I have spoken with most of you, but you know how it is when you are in the middle of doing something you love. I hope you all are doing great.
I am finishing my M.F.A. at the American Film
Institute in Hollywood. In fact, we are about to
embark on our Thesis Film Project at the end of this month. I am producing the film for my fellow
filmmakers, and I am looking for some help from you all who have helped shape me into the storyteller I have become today.
Thank you for your example, friendship and support in the past.
I am in need of your help now as well. I have set out to raise $42,000 from my friends, family, businesses and private institutions to help us cover the expenses of our short film. To date, we have raised an amazing $40,000. But I am writing to ask if there are any of you who still might be able to pitch in something toward our cause. We need the extra $2,000 to get the
film made, but any money exceeding that will only
increase the production value.
With your help, this film can be completed in time for your local festivals, and you will be able to sit in the theater and watch a film that you have helped to create.
The American Film Institute maintains all donations, so that your money can only be used for our production costs.
I wish I could offer you cookies in return for your
support, but even the costs of flour, eggs, and
chocolate chips are on the rise. Anyone who donates $30 or more will receive a DVD copy of the film. And if you are generous enough to donate $1000, I can offer an “Associate Producer” credit.

Feel free to write, or call me up if you want to talk
movies, or just catch up. I would love it.
