Synopsis: Marion is dealing with the financial and emotional challenges of being a single working mother. She is trying everything possible to stay afloat but the odds are stacked against her. Out of desperation and frustration Marion makes a rash decision to provide for her child. The story deals with impoverishment, the challenges of being a single parent, and the sense of desperation that can come from it.
Details: Shot with local cast and crew in Portland, Oregon, this film presents its story in true Northwest fashion. Overcast skies, bumpy streets, a tough economy paired with resilient individuals facing difficult life challenges. The team behind this film has been working together for years and that collaborative attitude and camaraderie shows in the final cut. Thematically, this film is about sacrifice. A mother must risk everything to provide for her child. The cast and crew echoed this theme in their performances and work on the film.
Why you should contribute: So, if the film is already finished, why do we need your generous contributions? A great question indeed. Our goal with Sneakers is to make a run at the film festival circuit. Film festivals have gotten more expensive and, our goal, is to raise money to help pay for the costs. The donations will go, first and foremost, towards submission fee's which range from 40-150 dollars. Beyond the submission fee's, we hope to get cast and crew to as many of the screenings as possible to represent the film, seek out distribution and help promote and finance future projects. We are committed to helping the film scene here in Oregon grow and the best way to do that is to make more films. With your help and contributions, we will promote Sneakers and build our network of people hungry to write, shoot and edit.
Thanks for taking the time to read our story and consider donating to our project.
