We need YOU! 

  My name is Jean Elie and I'm looking to create a film I have been developing entitled, “Phone Home.” It has been a pet project I' have spent a great deal of time and effort on, and feel it is ready to be brought to life and off its pages and into the festival near you.

   I’m writing to you seeking your support with a donation that would serve as an investment in my vision and creativity in hopes of bringing a film to life that will inspire many. This film will ignite a purpose in you while on the same merit informing you that your stories matter. It will facilitate an understanding in purpose and reasoning for you, as it did for me while writing it. I’ve grown to understand myself and why the things we've been through really matter, as we grow as human beings. (Message: To be there for one another, love each other, and be that someone a person can call on in their darkest hours.) 

  Now, the reason this film has been postponed thus far is because it has taken me a great deal of time to come across an up an coming actor that has the understanding of what it takes to turn a dream into a reality. Since I have found this actor, together we’ve been able to give the words on the pages a heartbeat and a great message. 

Moving along though we have overcome some obstacles, we are still seeking an experienced production team to see this project through from beginning to end. With your support and donations, we can make this happen.

   Finally, what we need and are missing are; Camera operators, DP's (Director Photography), Production Coordinators, Sound Engineers, Editors, Producers (You), 3 Cameras (7D/5D), and Lights. What we have; a director (Michael Karman) Actors (Deforrest Taylor, Jean Elie) and a location to film.

In closing, I hope you can make a contribution of some sort. No effort is too small. Thank you for your time and support.
