SENIOR PROJECT - A FEATURE FILM

Hello World! It's Jeremy Lin! - Don't get too excited, I'm not the basketball player. I'm a 16-year-old kid based in HONG KONG who wrote a screenplay that was found by producers in Hollywood. We need your help to make this happen.

All of the money we raise will go towards the professional cameras, lighting, and crew that will elevate this project to the Hollywood level.

THE WRITER'S MESSAGE 

Being a teenager is... difficult. Growing up and trying to fit in while navigating the halls of high school is an experience everyone around the world can relate to. At times this struggle is humorous, exhilarating, painful, inspiring and sometimes it's even heart-breaking. I've felt it all - and these experiences have been so meaningful that I decided to write about them.

It was a great deal of work creating a screenplay. At first, I had no clue what I was doing. But I knew I had a great story and a rich world of characters to build from. There's a story in every classroom and every hallway. So with a little encouragement from my friends and teachers; I kept writing and writing and writing. Earlier this year, I'm really proud to say that after many months of hard work, I finally completed Senior Project.

But we're not done...!

We need some help from YOU. We want you to be part of this experience. We'd love it if you could help us make this film. Please contribute so we can get this project up and running. Please give whatever you can. We obviously appreciate the money but perhaps most importantly, we really appreciate the support.

Thanks for taking the time to watch our video and consider our campaign. We really appreciate you believing in me... a 16 year old kid who wanted to make a film about ALL high schools.

THANKS!!

 - Jeremy Lin
