What defines "kindness?" Is it a singular act, or perhaps, something more meaningful?
Stealing Kindness is based on a true story. A man on his way home, gets off the metro and is mugged by a teen. Instead of just surrendering his money, the man gives the teen his jacket. Being kind to a person intending harm against him.
Our short film is intended to instill a thought of kindness into our viewers, in a way that hopefully changes the way we act, changes the city we live in, just maybe changes the world.
This story has moved me. I must let everyone know about this. I’ve told all of my friends, my family, and my coworkers. That’s not enough, I have to let as many people know about this one moment in time, that changed a young mans life.
That’s where you come in! Not only are you hearing about this message now, but you will get to see the film and show it to everyone around you! Further spreading the story and ensuring a kinder world.
I will be shooting this film with many other talented people. Veronica Vanglin is producing this with me. John Yznaga as my director of photography. Patrick Lawler as our 1st A/C. Arron Alps is running the lights with Robby Bozin. Toby Stansbury is handling the grip work. That’s just a few, amongst a great crew.
With your help in funding our film, we plan to get a Ziess ZF prime lens kit, location permissions, permit fees, craft services, telecine to film, and admission fees to the first film festival Stealing Kindness will be featured at.
We have a small portion of the budget being donated by local rental houses, professionals in the industry, and our own time being invested into this project. We only need to raise the remaining $1,000.00 and through Kickstarter, we hope to do so before September 1st.
Thank you, we are all intently looking forward to completing this short film and sharing our message. Be kind, please back our film.
