           KICKSTARTER COMMUNITY - WE DID IT!

Thanks to our amazing supporters on Kickstarter, we've managed to raise over half our budget in less than 3 weeks! We still have a long way to go, and over the next few days you can help us inch closer to the $20,000 we need to complete this film.

THE STORY:

While rehabilitating from a motor vehicle accident that left her paralyzed, Jessica (Tiffany Giddes) meets Charlie (Teal Sherer), a local bakery owner and fellow wheelchair user. Jessica soon realizes that Charlie is leading a double life as an assassin, and that she’s being groomed as her partner. While Jessica looks to get revenge on the man that put her in a wheelchair and Charlie seeks protection from former bosses that are trying to have her killed, both women learn that you can’t change the past, and friendship is the key to moving forward.

WHY WE ARE DOING THIS:

Think of this project as more than a film. Think of it as a movement away from long held stereotypes and stigmas regarding disability in Hollywood.

According to the Where Are We on TV report issued yearly by GLAAD, more than 12% of U.S. citizens report an apparent disability, making people with disabilities one of the largest minority groups in the country. Even so, less than 1% of series regular characters on broadcast networks have disabilities. In addition, only one of those actors has a known disability. (SAG.org)

Everyone deserves to see a version of themselves on screen, but for people with disabilities, the roles just aren't there. If they are, those roles frequently go to "able bodied" actors. Furthermore, actors with disabilities are rarely given the chance to audition for "able bodied" roles.

COLLISION aims to bring a wave of change through Hollywood. Actors with disabilities have been relegated to background and bit parts for far too long. Collision, the first film to feature two female wheelchair users in leading roles, will show the world that we can play the hero. 

Mainstream Hollywood needs to know that actors with disabilities are just like actors without disabilities. We work seriously on our craft and are passionate and driven.  We want to be taken seriously and we want to be considered for a variety of roles, not just the "pity” or "inspirational" roles -- But we need YOUR help to make that happen!

Collision is not about being in a wheelchair -- it's about living, loving, laughing, kicking ass and moving forward.

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT:

This is an ambitious film filled with amazing stunts and special effects like you've never seen before. Big ambitions often mean a big budget, but with big ambitions come big rewards. We can't change minds or break barriers without your generous support.  Together we can make movie history!
