UPDATE: WE MADE IT!!! We raised 5K!!! 

If you're new to this project and still want to be involved, I could still use your help! Donations past the 5k goal will be used to help cover all the other production expenses I'm covering out-of-pocket as well as any future promotional/film festival costs.

SYNOPSIS

Touch is a short film about a man who strips himself of all technology and social media in an attempt to overcome his porn addiction once and for all, only to find himself faced with the same temptations a year later while enduring a long distance relationship with his new girlfriend.

The topic of pornography addiction is something that doesn't get a lot of attention. By making this film I hope to stir up the conversation.

Below are some frames from the raw footage shot on day 1 of filming...

A quick disclaimer... I would hope this is already understood, but just to clarify, there will be no nudity in this film. Or any of my films for that matter. It's unnecessary in telling a good story.

 Want to stay anonymous with your donation?

I didn't realize this until now but... I totally understand there are several reasons you might want to donate anonymously! If this is the case, when you donate, just choose "no prize" also message me and let me know you don't want the social media shout-out or film credit. I'll make sure your name is never mentioned. If you have other concerns, please feel free to message me and we'll figure something out.

Past 5k

The 5k budget is all going straight towards just making the film. Money I raise beyond my 5k goal will be used to help cover all the other production expenses I'm covering out-of-pocket and also cover any future promotional/film festival costs.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge I face is that I'd like to have the film completed by the end of March. But I feel confident that bringing on an actual crew will make the production go much more smoothly and efficiently than past projects, where I had to do everything myself. After March, my schedule won't open up again until mid October. But if for some crazy reason we're not able to finish the film before then, I'll have all that time to think about how I can fine-tune the story to make it an even better film. But the odds of this happening are pretty slim.
