The Movie We're Makin':

A coming of age story about a girl who learns 
about her family, herself, and love, through music. 

Hello Friends and Future Friends:

We're really doing it. We're making a movie. We'll spend all of this August running around the hot desert with our young talent dressed like polygamists, and it's going to be amazing. We will make this feature film the perfect blend of sugar and spice, young and old, and we'll even have a little red corvette. It will be like drinking three delicious smoothies, with all the right jamba juice boosters in it. 

"How are you going to make this delicious movie?" Well, my brother and his girlfriend are already cinematographers. My grandma will supply the best Southern Utah locations you never heard about, and my dad might even lend me his truck! We just need a bit of that good ol' USD from our viewers at home to help us pay for gas, food, and lodging for the crew. 

We are super low budget, but we have the drive to make this movie happen. Please help us raise the money we need to make this movie happen.

The Filmmakers:

Rebecca Thomas, Will Thomas, Jessica Caldwell, Tennille Olsen, Theodore Boy, Luigi Campi, Eric Cannon, Jessica Lamph Cannon, Sherrie Thomas, Nisan Dag, Cindy Hu, David Figueroa, Nate Graves

Thank you for your support!
