Hello everyone!

STRANGERS is a passion project that I started back in the summer of 2011. So far every part of the process has been funded entirely by me (painfully), but we've been blessed to have the help of awesome collaborators who were so generous with their time and creative efforts. 

Now that post-production on the film is finally done, we are ready to send it off to various festivals both in the US and abroad. We want the chance to share this story to a broader audience because we believe in this film. This will also be an opportunity for all of our collaborators, cast, and crew to see that all of their hard work did not go to waste.

However, festival submission fees are far from cheap, ranging from $45 to $90 (plus shipping fees, DVDs, HDCAM production fees, press kits, etc.) and we need your help to get this film out. With the goal set at $1,000, we can potentially send the film to a dozen film festivals. That would be amazing! The more money we're able to raise, the more opportunities we'll have to get "Strangers" on the big screen.

Tell your friends! Post this link on facebook, twitter, pinterest, and etc.! Partner with us to meet our kickstarter goal!
