About this project

We have completed the teaser for our project...Please help us to finish the short film for distribution. We want our film to show others that there is hope, give them strength to believe and show them that tomorrow things will be better. Help us finish our short film...please donate!

My name is Lori and I am sharing my personal story of abuse and attempted suicide in hopes that by telling my story we can save another life. All life matters and no one should believe that their only way out of their pain is to take their life. 

Always helps me through the tough spots

You are stronger than you know and I hope my story will help another find their inner strength to choose to stay.

We all have a purpose on this earth and we all need time to discover what our purpose is.

Please help us raise funds to pay & feed the production cast & crew who are helping us to get this story from memoir into a short film that can be distribute to schools, churches, & non-profit organizations to help us spread hope to others who may be suffering. 

We have partnered up with a great local production company, Totally Serious Productions, here in Portland Oregon. They helped film and edit the teaser portion of this project and will be helping us with the short film as well. Filming should begin in February if we can secure at least half of the funds we are trying to raise by then.

Please donate and help us save a life. 

Thank you for your help. 

I wear a ring on my pinky finger to remind myself & my children no matter how bad I feel, I will stay!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks and challenges when shooting a film project. The weather here in Oregon can delay filming as well. One of our location shots will be outside.
Actors are people too with family they need to be there for first as well as their day job. We are being compassionate to their needs as well and hope to shoot during nights and weekends to complete our project.
We are really trying to have everything completed by March of 2017 if not before.
