About this project

WELCOME TO ILEANA'S SMILE! 

A Note From Brad Corrigan 

Hey Friends, it's Brad Corrigan. What a joy to write this letter! We have been working on the Ileana’s Smile campaign for 6+ months and want to thank you for allowing us to introduce you to our sweet Ileana! All I can say is this – there's my life up until 2006 before meeting Ileana, and then this crazy, beautiful ride and unfolding adventure since. We are SO excited to be able to share her with you and invite you into the heart of this storytelling process with us.

Thank you for watching the film trailer, and for spending some time considering how you can best support the making of our Ileana's Smile documentary and soundtrack!

I can assure you that this documentary will be profound, beautiful, and full of Ileana's sparkle and that the original music scored for the film will be unforgettable. It is our joy and privilege to carry Ileana forward as our inspiration, and we can't wait to get started with your support!

Thank you for jumping in with us to make Ileana's Smile a reality that will never fade, and for becoming one of the 133,000 hearts and minds connected in honoring Ileana's legacy so that other vulnerable children like her can be protected and live. Let's make this campaign the most widely "backed" in Kickstarter history!

Here we go...

Brad

MEET ILEANA

Ileana, a little girl with a big heart and lightning smile, grew up in a trash dump community in Managua, Nicaragua. As a child she was forced into prostitution by her parents to make money for her family. Tragically, she contracted HIV and passed away in 2011. Inspired by Ileana’s courage and smile, we are raising funds through Kickstarter to produce a documentary to honor her short, beautiful and bold life. The film will also shine a light on the growing need to protect children vulnerable to sexual exploitation worldwide. We believe there is immeasurable power in Ileana’s story and we're excited to share it with you in this documentary. 

ABOUT THE FILM 

Using the funds raised from this campaign, Love Light & Melody will be producing a feature-length documentary on Ileana’s beautiful yet tragic life. The expected release date for the film is November 2015. Your support and donations are critical to the realization of this project.  

From 2006-2011, Love Light & Melody compiled five years of film footage and still photography documenting many important moments and seasons of Ileana’s life. We anticipate that this archival footage and photography will serve as 60 to 70-percent of the film’s content. 

The remaining 30 to 40-percent of the footage will be filmed interviews with individuals from Nicaragua, Brazil, Japan and the United States who were unexpectedly brought together and inspired by Ileana’s life and smile. In addition, we will be interviewing leading experts and advocates on the issue of sexual exploitation of children worldwide.

Ileana’s Smile is not yet in production. The $133,000 film budget includes:

  • Archiving footage
  • Story boarding 
  • Filming interviews, supporting footage and additional b-roll 
  • Travel budgets to Nicaragua, Brazil and Japan to capture supporting footage
  • Animation
  • Editing 
  • Color-correction
  • Sound design
  • Titling and credits  
  • Public relations and marketing 

IF we exceed our goal of $133,000 through your generous support, additional funding will be used for the following:

  • Increasing the production value of the film, particularly with animation
  • Increasing the production value of the film's score and soundtrack
  • Increasing public relations and marketing plans
  • Pursuing wider theatrical distribution
  • Developing other artistic platforms to share Ileana's Smile (i.e. book publication, apparel design and photo exhibit)

ILEANA'S SMILE SOUNDTRACK

Featuring Brad Corrigan & special guests 

Brad Corrigan is a musician, member of the indie band Dispatch, producer, and composer of original music for film. He is widely networked in the artist community and will be collaborating with artist friends from a variety of genres to create a stand alone body of original music inspired by "Ileana's Smile."  Brad has been inspired by the likes of Gustavo Santaolalla (Motorcycle Diaries, Babel), Bill Whelan (Riverdance), and Mark Mothersbaugh (Bottle Rocket, Rushmore) and can't wait to create a score of music that is as wild and unpredictable, soft and sweet as Ileana.  

Check back often throughout the Kickstarter Campaign, as we will be announcing the names of the special guests that Brad will be composing and writing with for the Ileana's Smile Soundtrack. Stay tuned! 

Watch below for the first song in the soundtrack…

OUR QUALIFICATIONS

Ileana’s Smile will be Love Light & Melody’s second feature-length documentary. In 2008, we produced a film, Dia de Luz, documenting a 1,500-person “Day of Light” festival event held in the heart of La Chureca, the city landfill in Managua, Nicaragua where Ileana lived. This film earned showcase selections at the 2009 Artivist and Cinequest film festivals and features soundtrack contributions from Moby and Sufjan Stevens.

HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS

For those of you who are new to Kickstarter, it is a fundraising platform for creative projects and is driven by an all-or-nothing model. If we fail to meet our goal of $133,000 within the 30-day campaign, we will lose all of our pledged support. If we reach or exceed our goal, we will receive the funds to produce the Ileana’s Smile documentary film – thanks to supporters like you!

FAQ

  • Kickstarter only allows each backer to select one reward, but we want to make sure you get any and all rewards that interest you.

    Here's an example: if you want to purchase the $200 reward for the Denver screening AND an Ileana's Smile t-shirt all you need to do is select the $200 reward but pledge an extra $40 and let us know that you also want a shirt (via message or the backer survey we'll send out after the campaign).

    So, pledge the TOTAL amount for all of the rewards you want, select one of the rewards and let us know what other goodies you want us to include!

  • Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we don’t reach our goal of $133,000 we won’t be able to receive any of the pledged donations and the Ileana’s Smile documentary film won't get funded. We don’t want that now, do we?

    Last updated:
  • We would love to do a screening of Ileana’s Smile in every town in America/the world, but it just isn’t feasible. So, we had to limit the amount of locations where we’ll do screenings. Please leave a comment and let us know what city you’d like to see a screening in and if we get enough interest, we’ll consider adding another location!

    Last updated:
  • Kickstarter campaigns are based on PLEDGES to donate, so the money won't be taken out of your account until we meet our goal and the project is complete (on or around May 21, 2014). If we don't reach our goal, no money will be taken from your account.
