About this project
Unbreakable Threads is an uplifting documentary that shows today’s global perspective surrounding alternative loving family structures, which include heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender and other non-traditional families.
These families have been filmed in personal and intimate everyday situations showing how children are being raised in a safe, secure, and loving environment at a time when laws and views on the topic are rapidly changing and society is not always accepting.
In depth interviews with experts in their fields such as sociology professors at both University of Houston and Rice University, as well as high-profile interviews with advocate Zach Wahls, Houston Mayor, Annise Parker, and KPRC’s Frank Billingsley, will be shown to provide well-documented views and studies to promote acceptance and tolerance of differences in families. These stories will show hope and acceptance, courage and adversity.
This documentary will hopefully raise awareness and educate people from around the world. One of the most important goals is to have the documentary shown in schools so that all children can feel happy and proud of their families.

Stacey Summers founded Poppy Pro Productions and is the film’s creator and director/producer. She teamed up with Adam Richard, the cinematographer and web site creator, and Heikki Mustonen, who created and edited the trailer, to get the documentary to this point. A special thank you goes to Stig Daniels, Brooke Bratovich, Steven Zangirolami and Sean Duke, whose talents also contributed a great deal.
Why We Need Your Support
At this stage, we are in a great place for completion of our documentary. Almost all of the filming has been completed and we have wonderful footage with heart-warming families, expert opinions and some high-profile interviews.
However, we also need to cover our expenditures for an editor, a composer, an audio/visual technician, equipment, and, finally, marketing and distribution costs, among many other expenses.
Finally, I feel that I have a big responsibility to complete this project, in that I do not want to let the families down who are counting on me to share their personal stories.
For this, we would sincerely appreciate all of your help and support!
Risks and challenges
Creating a documentary is a considerable challenge and, clearly, there is a long list of items needed to successfully bring it to market. While there are always risks to successful completion of any complex endeavor on a topic of importance, such as this documentary, we believe that from this point forth we are fortunate that most of the risks are behind us. This is because we already have wonderful footage, amazing interviews and, most importantly, an inspirational cause. We simply need to complete the documentary and with your support we will be able to turn this story into a film that will truly make a change.
Going forward, we still need to finish editing and post production. Time is one of our biggest challenges as there is a lot of footage and photographs that have to be sorted and compiled to make a meaningful and captivating story. This can be quite time consuming. In addition, even after the documentary is funded, we still face the risk of distribution and reaching a wide audience.
Lastly, if we do not meet our goal of $20,000 in thirty days, we will not receive any of your donations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
