PHASE 2, The Documentary - Surviving or Thriving?
10 People from around the world that were sexually abused by a family member and are Thriving today!
We are now raising funds for Phase 2, the second Thriver to be filmed! (Read on to the bottom for information on Phase 1's shoot)
Project Funding Overview: The Documentary is estimated to cost $60,000USD. My idea, both to trick my own terrified lizard brain and to make it a reality is to break down the funding into 10 chunks each raising $6,000USD with a time limit of 90days per phase.
Quick Review on how it works with Kickstarter and Amazon:
- Kickstarter allow a total of 90days per project. (Time limit's work really well for me:-)
- Kickstarter will not charge your card until the date limit.
- If the total amount is not raised, your cards are NOT charged.
- Kickstarter get 5% of the total.
- Amazon get a complicated total per transaction & processing fees.
We believe that no matter where you come from, your education, your background or your experiences you can choose to Thrive. This is a story about "10 people from around the world that were sexually abused by a family member and are thriving today!"
Sexual abuse is like mold, it Thrives in the dark! Our goal is to illuminate this aspect of life and get people thinking, talking and standing up for themselves and those they can help. Choosing how we want to live our lives is our option!
We are breaking down the documentary into 10 shoots, this $6K is for shoot No.2. Currently there are 6 thrivers from 4 Countries that qualify. Myself and a camera/film expert will be the only people filming and interviewing, if anyone has seen "born into brothels" this is the style of filming I have in mind. Simple, honest, direct and to the point. "born rich" needs credit here too, this movie solidified my goal of ten people.
It's really important to me that this project NOT be driven by my personal need for living (surviving). I do other thriving things for that:) All funds received will go towards costs involved in filming, travel and editing. As a first time film maker I'm 100% open to your comments or tips on budgets, filming, editing or even Thrivers. Feel free to send me your thoughts.
Phase 1 is booked to be shot in June 2010 with Thriver no1. Koelle Simpson for more information on Koelle take a look at her site www.koelleinc.com
This is a life time dream of mine! Thanks to Kickstarter and YOU I'm on the road,
Lets enjoy the ride and Thrive together!
