What is the meaning of life? It's the kids that know the answer and I'm asking them in this feature-length documentary film.
I am traveling the United States interviewing kids, asking them to talk about their views on life, love, success, and happiness. I will be editing these interviews, including candid portraits of each child's life, into a full-length documentary.
As I've grown up, I've been the most surprised that more and more of the answers I once had have been replaced by questions. The wonderment and curiosity I had as a kid has been bogged down by the daily grind and concerns of adult life.
My goal with this documentary is to get a kid's perspective on the big life questions, because I feel they are the ones who have a truly unbiased viewpoint. I hope to get back down to the heart of what it all means, and what is really important in life. I'll be talking to kids of all ages, cultures, backgrounds, living environments and social classes to find out how and if their opinions differ on these big issues. I believe it is their unique outlook that will give viewers of all ages the chance to look at life through fresh eyes and to re-evaluate and think about what life is really about.
BUT I NEED YOUR HELP... $10,000 is the amount of money I need to pay for the travel expenses to get to enough cities to truly represent a diverse population of the kids in America. I've already got the camera, but I still need a few camera and audio supplies for the documentary, so some of the money will be put into that. If more than $10,000 is donated, it will go towards increasing the overall quality of the finished project by adding another crew member to my team to shoot on the road and on editing and scoring the film.
HERE'S HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS: The total amount of $10,000 must be pledged within the 30 days for any money to be raised at all. That means if the goal is not reached, no money will be charged to you. I want to assure you that I have spent alot of time and effort figuring out how much I need to make this project possible, and that every penny will be dedicated to making it the best film it can be.
REWARDS: In the right column of this page, you will see the rewards that you will receive if you make a pledge. These include DVD's of the completed film, invitations to screenings, and credits in the movie for making it possible. Please check them out.

I have a huge passion for this film and in discovering how and if each kid's opinion differs based on their environments. I also believe it has a huge potential to uplift and inspire us all.
