The movie has already been completed but now we would like to make professional quality DVDs and send this project to film festivals. Made on a shoe string budget we really would appreciate any and all help in entering "Death Suspects a Murder" into as many festivals as possible. We had a great crowd response at our first screening: over 300 people attended.

It took over 9 months to finish this project so it is easily an example of a labor of love. This was a project that took a lot of personal dedication and sacrifice. It took a crew of over 20 people total all with varying schedules in order to complete the film but it was all worth it in the end. Here is production designer Jessie Jolliff talking about her process.

And here is assistant director of photography Richard Goff discussing what his experience on set was like:

With your investment we hope to bring this movie to more and more people around the United States and the world!
