"When Insanity is the only way back to Sanity"

About this project

Clementine knows she will get over her now ex-boyfriend. She knows that these things happen and that she will find somebody new. Clementine knows all the advice her friends gave her and knows that she was cheated on and knows that she is better off in the long run focusing on herself and her career and that she will grow from this character-building cliché of an experience. Clementine is a smart, sane, rational person who knows all of this.  Or at least she used to be.  

Right now, it doesn’t matter what she knows.  Right now, insanity is the only way back to sanity. 

"The Five Stages Of Grief, A Comedy," is a short film inspired by well-known psychological phases: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance or, in plain English, the crazy things we all do when our hearts get broken.  It is about exploring the humor and compassion each step of the way.

Thank you so much for taking the time too look at our promo trailer.

Everyone on our crew is working for free. We have a wonderful cast and crew.

We need money basically to:

*Feed all these wonderful people.  You wouldn't want them to be all sickly looking, right? 

*Equipment rental since neither one of us owns the camera we want to use and the lighting equipment as well.

*Locations and Insurance.

*Data storage devices.

*Postage and shipping fees.

*Festival submission fees.

 Whatever you are able to pledge would mean the world to us, and we'll be able to tell our story.  Be our Hero!
