About

Imagine sitting in a clinic, watching the clock spin around, as you wait for results from a test that will determine which direction your life will take. You will be thinking: How did I get here?

Minutes is an atypical story about AIDS. Previous films about AIDS have focusd on someone who is already living with it. THIS FILM focuses on the "BEFORE" part, as we watch the main character goes through this fearful experience. It acts as a TERRIFYING WARNING about being cautious & careful. This film will also focus on the importance of communication AND the need to talk to one another to prevent such chaos.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO ME? Because AIDS ends not only lives, but dreams. It takes courage to live your life somedays, especially when you take a shot at your dreams. How heartbreaking is it when someone's life ends from an accident, when their life was taking off or beginning to grow. How much more so when they could have prevented it.

My first short film, I'm Not Matt Damon, was an overwhelming success, winning 2 awards from 10 film festivals & got distribution. (My bio is on www.imdb.com)

I paid for that film. This time around, I need help.

I am raising $10,000. No donation is too small ($1) or too big ($1000). This will be applied to the latest HD technology, (RED ONE or ARRI ALEXA).

The film will have a 4 day shoot, with all cast & crew paid for and it will utilize the best equipment that will mirror the same professional look my previous film had.

Check out the trailer on my website: www.ImNotMattDamon.com for an example.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly at jrothman22@sbcglobal.net

I hope you look variably on my film and my goal, and I appreciate any help I can get. Thank you!!
