Marriage equality is what we are fighting for!!!
Our Place tells the story of Brie and Faith, a lesbian couple in their late 20s, who live together. Brie and Faith live in Indiana which is trying to ban gay marriage all together. We follow them through some ups and downs of being in a relationship while living together, all while they decide whether or not to take the next step and get married to one another.
We want to show the a gay relationship is just like any other relationship. There are fights, arguments, lovely moments, sad times, but ultimately all this helps make a stronger couple. So, we are showing the good and bad.
Who We Are
We are a cast and crew of ambitious, hardworking young filmmakers, who currently attend or have graduated from film school. This is an independent project that we are creating without the "Hollywood industry." We have a group of very talented people, and truly believe in the message of this production. This is why we have come to Kickstarter to ask for help. We truly want to get this film out to a much larger audience. Our goal, as a whole, is to establish ourselves as independent filmmakers and make this beautiful story. We're living our dreams.

Risks and challenges
We are a cast and crew of young, ambitious, hardworking people. We are ready to give everything we have to this film. And with any project there is going to be some problems that arise, mostly minor, but that shows a dedicated filmmaker from someone else, when the problems arise, you face them head on.
Problems that could arise:
- If we don't raise this money from kickstarter, we will not be able to shoot this film.
- As always with an independent film, we have to get enough people on board to come out and work everyday without getting paid or getting paid very little. Lucky enough we know a good deal of dedicated people that we have worked with before. So, we know and trust the crew.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
