About

Please take a moment to read this……. I am Sean and I am producing /directing a documentary called Twisted Silence. This will be a full length documentary about tornados and how they affect people’s lives. I have been in the film business for over 6 years professionally and I am local to the Omaha area. I have lived in Nebraska my entire life and I was raised rural /homeschooled. In 2013 Wayne Nebraska was hit by a large tornado and that is when I first came up with this idea. Jump ahead to Mother’s Day 2014 and Beaver Crossing Nebraska was hit hard. At this point I was hard on this idea. The Pilger Ne. Tornado is the straw that broke the camel’s back as they say. I now believe it is my responsibility to give these survivors an opportunity to tell their story. Everyone has a story and they want to know that people care. This is why I am doing this project. I have found that as we continue to capture these amazing stories, it becomes therapeutic and helps them with their healing process. We are in need of people like you who could help fund this project.

Risks and challenges

It is a challenge to get to these families in a timely manner soon after the tornado has hit them . We need to build a relationship with these people and earn their trust that they would allow us to tell their story. This is risky because it is a lot of time to commit to drive there and then hope you can earn their trust at such a traumatic time in their life. Another challenge is being consistent and following up later down the road with the survivors.
