THE WEDDING GOWN PROJECT is a short documentary about the history of the iconic white wedding dress and the important role it plays in the lives of women of all ages. I have completed the necessary interviews and need your donation to complete the editing of the film with animation and music. These funds will also pay for website development and duplication of the film to submit to various film festivals around the United States. Funds will be allocated in the following way:
20% - animation
20% - website
20% - dvd duplication
This film is scheduled to be completed July 2012.
