Help Jess get wheels!
"Grounded" is still making an impact -- we've screened in fests around the world and will be at Indie Grits in SC at the end of April-- a great fest and we've done a mini-fundraiser to bring Jessica with us for one last festival hurrah!
If Jessica had her own van we wouldn't still be reaching out for help. She has been teaching at Georgia Perimeter College and the trip takes her several hours each day on public transportation. In a car it's a 15-20 minute trip.
You can help her reach a new dream by voting for her in a contest to win a brand new accessible van. Read her pitch and vote here:
It's been incredible to share Jessica's story with the world and thank you all for helping us get off the ground.

High roller! We realize someone like you likes authenticity--so for you a Jessica Blinkhorn original. These are very limited in quantity--but certainly not quality. Each drawing is a painstaking labor of love. We'll also add you as a "Contributing Producer" because you are that special. And because your heart is true--we will also kick in a lovely 8 x 10 photograph of the director's "True" tattoo--that sits over her heart. You my friend need to do a wacky little "touchdown!" type dance because you are sending Jessica all the way!
