SILENT is the passion project of young artists with the desire to tell intimate and genuine stories.
SILENT follows Anna Connelly through the tumultuous and painful day in which she decides to deal with her husband's infidelity.
Donating is simple! You’ll just set up an account with Kickstarter and in return Kickstarter will hold your donation on your credit card until the end of the campaign. Why? Because it charges everyone’s cards only if the goal is met!
So what exactly is Kickstarter? Basically, it's a crowdfunding platform that helps artists by splitting the financing of a project across a large pool of supporters in order to get exciting projects off the ground, aka, SILENT.
Our goal is $7,500, which if reached will go directly into production costs such as camera equipment, production design, transportation... etc.
Could we use more? Of course. Can we exceed our goal? Yes! More funds means more resources, more crew, more creative freedom. In other words, exceeding our goal would allow us to tell the story better.
