PROJECT UPDATE • WE'RE ALMOST THERE!
$16,000 was the bare minimum that we had to raise to make this project happen. Obviously anything we raise over that amount will be put to good use. If we exceed our goal of $16,000, any left over funds can be put towards reimbursing the many people who did us favors, additional screenings, submitting to more festivals, etc. So we don't have to stop at $16,000! Let's go!
SNAFU is a six-episode series that takes place in Brooklyn, NY. It's the story of a girl, Florence, who is constantly rediscovering her purpose in life. Florence is all about throwing herself into the deep end or going "balls to the wall", as the kids say, to pursue the thing she was put on Planet Earth to do, even if she just discovered it like...this morning. With her strange but loyal roommate Eli by her side, there's no telling what Florence will do to pursue her dreams or how many messes she will make along the way (spoiler alert: a ton).
We have assembled a top notch cast and crew to bring you more than an hour of content featuring six episodes of the silliest stuff you've seen all day (minus the online cat videos you watched this morning). Each episode is its own little adventure, giving you six opportunities to watch from a distance the lives of people who are undoubtedly more delusional than you. And that feels good!
One of our main goals has always been to make this look good. What does that mean? We use the best equipment and most talented folks to bring you thoughtful, high quality entertainment that will make you chuckle and brighten your day.
Our fantastic cast features the likes of Michael Pantozzi, Grant Harrison, Lauren Ireland, Eli Trichon, Jenna Laurenzo, Ben Kronberg, Haley Rawson, Jen Kwok, Stephanie Gibson, Allison Lee, Tyree Robinson, Kelly Jean Clair and more!
Thank you for your support -- we can't wait to share SNAFU with you.

Risks and challenges
We are working endlessly to keep production costs as low as possible. However, filmmaking--from equipment to insurance to food to paying our crew is shockingly expensive.
We have a production team comprised of incredibly hardworking, organized young people who are determined to make this happen. We are taking a giant leap of faith and engaging you because we believe in the value of the story and feel certain you will too.
We ask your help in the form of financial support. We are so grateful for every little dollar you can provide. We promise to make your investment worthwhile.
