THE STORY

Jimi James AKA Message Mon started writing about his siblings struggle in show business ten years before he met Denise. Both families with similar characteristics lived in the same neighborhood for decades, and at times were in the same room but never meet. An incident involving Slapbak (Jara's band), and Simpson after his acquittal brings the J. Harris Band back together to artistically assist the Browns in their tragic situation and manifest healing, awareness, and family unity in the name of domestic violence. This story is about love, music, purpose, and family values. It is the perfect nutrition for Hearts and Souls around the world! Interested in more story line visit www.heartandsoulfoodmovie.com

WHAT THIS MONEY WILL BE USED FOR

#1. A documentary to begin production as soon as this project is funded to be released before the movie. It will explain many details that won't make it into the film. (first budget)

#2. Development funding for "Heart & Soul Food" movie project. Kickstarter funding allows us to retain creative control of our story through the development stages (which at this point is 98% true) and will speed us to production. (second budget)

#1. DOCUMENTARY BUDGET

#2. SCRIPT PROD. DEVELOPMENT BUDGET
#2. SCRIPT PROD. DEVELOPMENT BUDGET

Risks and challenges

We feel the risk factor is low in this situation because of public awareness to this tragedy. If everyone who watched the "Trial Of The Century" or was effected by the verdict pledged only $1, we would raise enough to develop the script, produce the documentary and the entire movie. And ... if everyone who either watched the "Simpson saga" or was effected by the verdict went to see this movie, It would be one of the biggest movies of all times.
