HEY! I am Patricia Hope and very happy you are checking this project out… so you know this entity is not a Charity. It is a for-profit business. Please click on Profile after reading this proposed project, for more background on me and quotes from various people who have viewed other films I have made. Then, PLEASE click on the Pledge button to partner with us! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR BELIEVING IN ME AND THIS PROJECT! Names have been changed in the film, except mine, to protect the identity of those involved.
Please click on the following video. This will give you insight into why I am making this production. Again, this is a true story, it’s my UNTOLD STORY. I ask you to forgive me for the lack of quality at the first few seconds of the first film, it’s a bit dark although one can hear it just fine. The final production will be clear and bright. Please read the following information and watch 8 more short videos in order as they are presented for a complete understanding of this KICKSTARTER project. The following numbers represent minutes and seconds, in length of time for the 8 videos: 5:24 - 2:30 - 3:47 - 1:15 - 2:37 - 2:16 - 1:44 - 3:13
You maybe shocked and outraged to know... 5 minutes 24 seconds
This KICKSTARTER project includes shooting about 45 minutes of entertaining, positive and engaging scenes. Then integrating those scenes into about one hour of existing production to total one hour and 45 minutes of one new production/project for the final feature film movie/documentary. This is a true story, an UNTOLD STORY!
The proposed 45 minutes to be shot, will include scenes to add balance and entertainment with the existing one hour for the benefit of each viewer. A new copyright will be filed on the new project. It is my intention to enter the final project in the 10 most popular film festivals throughout the world, intended to meet festival deadlines for 2015 and 2016 film festivals. We intend to have the final project ready in time to submit the feature length film mid 2015 into Sundance Film Festival and to nine other popular film festivals as soon as we have the final product. Who knows from there…we hope to see it on the BIG SCREEN in your neighborhoods throughout the nation…
Shortly after receiving the copyright in 1999, I took that production to movie experts and professionals in the industry for their opinion. The opinions were similar, while “The Patricia Hope Story” content is an important story especially since it is true and documented fact by fact …it is missing the element of entertainment - people want to be entertained when they go to the movies. The almost two hours was very emotionally painful and devastating to listen and watch. It is a true story, although it is difficult to take it all in without triggering deep internal emotions of the viewer. They suggested I replace about 45 minutes of the existing production to give the story balance. These changes would better serve the viewer. It is their belief once the changes are made for the final project, the viewer would not become so emotionally drained - as the two hours effected them when they watched it. I ran out of money and have not been financially able to produce the extra 45 minutes of pure enjoyable entertainment to complete The Patricia Hope Story. I ask for your partnership...
I have the script for the newly designed and proposed 45 minutes film production. Once this project is funded, I will shoot all of the new scenes and incorporate the newly designed proposed production with scenes shot before in 1999. We will have a complete project… just needing funds.
Many victims when victimized lose all hope, spiraling downward into denial - then coping and medicating their trauma through drugs, alcohol and even worse scenarios. The Patricia Hope Story does not deny days of sadness, crying a river of tears, missing my loved ones and many other emotions experienced through the process revealed in the movie. My love for my loved ones and drive to refuse to take on those negative feelings of the victim, motivated me to become:
Owner/administrator of a bi-lingual elementary-middle & high school;
President - Protect The Children LLC - Producer of a feature film movie, educational documentaries and training videos; see Web site: http://www.thepatriciahopestory.com
Founder of a non-profit organization - receiving national attention for its success in protecting children and their protectors; see Web site: http://www.hopeforchildrenfoundation.org (and)
A successful owner of a real estate business.
We do not hear much about or celebrate impassioned, strong willed and driven women succeeding in environments surrounded with victimization and hopelessness, taking on BIG RISKS and CHALLENGES. I have had to remind myself daily of what I do have instead of what was taken from me, unlawfully.
The Patricia Hope Story is a film that is changing how victims are looked upon, inspiring the next generation of female and male leaders by showing them what it looks like when one draws on their inner strengths and performs with a much higher standard than expected. The mainstream media does not typically celebrate the lives of victims especially when the victim perhaps is a strong, successful woman. We are working on changing history in that regard. We are placing our focus and energy on capturing how the cultural shift is happening. We believe in MOMENTUS POWER of seeing victims becoming victorious as leaders in their communities – living with significance and productivity for the rest of their lives.
We take an intimate look into my life, Patricia Hope, inside my personal life and in the workplace. We will reveal where I found support, success and where I struggled. We will reveal who and what encouraged and empowered me and how I advanced in the workplace. We will reveal the sexism that can hold women back despite their progress. The complete process of victimization is revealed. The scenes will be reality based, causing various emotions to be experienced by the viewer - happy, sad, laughter, tears, love, hate, anger, rage, relief, peace, hope, despair, excitement, desire, empowerment, encouragement, serious thought, and great wisdom develops during the film.
Problems are widespread in the Texas justice system, despite the involvement of many well meaning child protective workers, district attorneys, judges, attorneys, police officers and medical workers, our system sometimes fails to meet the needs of abused children and their protectors for safety, protection and stability. A parental education gap exists concerning ethical court room procedures concerning abused children. When protective parents know what to expect in the court system, children can receive the help they need. The Patricia Hope Story fills this gap, the prospect of precious children living abuse-free lives can be realized.
I share my real life experiences with you that seriously RATTLED MY WORLD. YOU CAN TRULY BE PART OF THE PATH TO MAKE IT ROCK SOLID! I am depending on you.

I THINK, FEEL, BELIEVE AND PRAY WITH ALL OF MY HEART AND SOUL, I AM OFFERING YOU A COMPLETE PACKAGE, FULL OF COURAGE IN ACTION, ENCOURAGEMENT, AN EXPERIENCE YOU WILL LEARN FROM, LOVE and ENJOY!!!
As we continue our work creating positive responses to strengthen myself, my family, friends and other survivors of domestic violence crimes, we encourage you to partner with us in this project. I am the only woman in the world that was unlawfully WANTED and ARRESTED by the FBI, unlawfully prosecuted by the State of Texas, two different times, resulting with NOT GUILTY VERDICTS BOTH TIMES! I am innocent of any crime and this was proven in two jury trials. I legally left Texas to protect my loved one from further acts of reported abuse, the judges failed to protect her. These judges made rulings when it was clear they did not have jurisdiction and no legal right to make any ruling in their court.
(Presented by: Attorney Charles Campbell)
This document below is explained in the above video; with the exception of the order also being a Civil Rights violation due to failing to have the signature of an attorney ad-litem on it, representing the best interest of the minor child.
The following information is my explanation of the above one page order. I hope it answers any of your questions.
I had hired an attorney I knew from school. His father was also an attorney. Later he informed me his father had a conflict of interest with the court and he could no longer represent me. This was a shock since I had already paid him a retainer fee, we were at the court house and now I did not have an attorney. I am not an attorney. I had to quickly find an attorney. I ask an attorney, a complete stranger that just happened to be at the court house, if he was familiar with alleged child abuse cases. He said absolutely. He took my money for a retainer. Unfortunately for me and my daughter, it was clear to me he did not know what he was doing after he took my money. I told him I needed to find another attorney. He and the other attorney for the Defendant, said the easiest way for me to release him would be to get a judge to sign an order for him to withdraw from the case. The Judge of the 255 District Court was not available, so the Defendant’s attorney went looking for another Judge to sign a one page hand written order allowing my attorney to withdraw from the case. The Defendant’s attorney found Judge Robert O’Donnell. We all met in front of that judge. The only thing discussed and requested before that Judge was to sign a one page order allowing my attorney, attorney for Movant, to withdraw from the case. Judge Robert O’Donnell granted my attorney to withdraw with my permission. The attorney for the Defendant wrote the following by hand, “Gilbert Medina’s Jr’s motion to withdraw is granted. Patricia Hill’s address for notice pursuant to T.R.C.P is 6051 Windbreak Trail Dallas 75252
It was Signed (STAMPED) Jul 28 1989 BY Judge Robert O’Donnell, Judge of the 301st District Court, Sitting for Judge of the 255 District Court;
My attorney signed it
the Attorney for Defendant signed it not opposed.
I signed it as approved.
Later, without my immediate knowledge, the attorney for Defendant unlawfully placed one more piece of paper in front of the one page “Order To Withdraw” then unlawfully represented it was a “Transfer Order.” Stating it another way, Defendant’s attorney manufactured a two page order that was originally a totally different one page order - having nothing to do with a transfer. Judge Robert O’Donnell even testified on the witness stand, what he signed did not transfer the case from Dallas County to Collin County, Texas. Additional unlawful actions of a few judges failed to abide by Texas law, failing to send the case back to Dallas, TX. This includes the Appeals Court judges and Texas Supreme Court judges. Unlawful acts run deep in Texas, including intentionally failing to protect helpless children and loving protective Mother’s.
I was FORCED by Texas courts to take the law into my own hands and protect my loved one. The Texas courts were not protecting her.
The "unlawful order" above is explained in the above video. Unfortunately, you might not understand what constitutes a "unlawful order" as I did not understand when the unlawful act first happened. There could be several elements of being "unlawful." When a court hearing concerning a certain matter "NEVER HAPPENED" an "Order" by the court/judge cannot be signed at all. So, if an “order” is suddenly manufactured out of NO-WHERE, that is unlawful. NO HEARING and NO testimony occurred to cause the transfer of the case. There was NOT a court hearing concerning the transfer of the case. There is NOTHING written in the judge's docket file concerning the documentation of a transfer hearing. There is NO court reporter EVER listed for a transfer hearing. Therefore, there is NO court transcript available to APPEAL the UNLAWFUL transfer order, since there was NEVER a transfer hearing, absolutely NOTHING happened to transfer this case from Dallas to Collin County except unlawful actions committed by the Defendant's attorney = (manufactured a unlawful transfer order) unlawful actions committed by the Dallas District Clerk's office in unlawfully transferring the case, and Collin and Denton County Clerk's Office in accepting the unlawful transfer of the case. The Collin and Denton County judges failed to send the case back to Dallas County. They entered unlawful orders to the detriment of myself, my loved one and my family. This has been proven, although these particular Texas judges continued their part of the conspiracy to cover up the unlawful acts. The Dallas County court is the only court having legal, continuing jurisdiction of the case. The unlawful actions by the judges, including Appeal judges and others were part of the obstruction of justice.
UNLAWFUL ACTIONS are deeply rooted in Texas government, just look at the recent criminal Indictments of our Governor, the Dallas District Attorney and a Dallas City Councilman. This is just the tip of the iceberg of government officials finally being held accountable for their reported unlawful actions.
I have offered this information concerning the unlawful transfer order to over 500,000 recipients in Texas for the purpose of training honorable law enforcement, honorable judges, honorable prosecutors, honorable attorneys and others. We also sent the judges who committed these unlawful actions personal invitations to attend the training. They did not attend. They certainly know about the presentation and have known since the year 2000 to date. These judges who committed unlawful acts and other participants have never filed suit against me to stop me from revealing their criminal actions. I believe they fear going before honorable judges in Texas, not all judges in Texas act unlawfully.

Please feel free to share this project with your family, friends and colleagues. The following picture is of a little girl playing the part of my daughter in the film. She’s a cutie and as sweet as my daughter was as a child. She will capture your heart in the final feature film as she easily did mine.
I, Patricia Hope, have the legal rights to everything produced within this project: the pictures, actors, actresses, music, audio and video basically everything you see and hear contained within this KICKSTARTER Project. The names have been changed in this production to protect identities.
I filmed three hours of footage in 1998 and 1999, edited the footage and produced The Patricia Hope Story in 1999, just under two hours. I have all legal releases from participates, actors, actresses, parents of children performing in the production, and music rights. Then a copyright was issued to me, Patricia Hope, on the written screenplay and video from the United States Copyright Office 6-14-1999 with a revision 8-13-1999. The production is just under two hours long. The Copyright Registration Number is PAu002467577 with a revision issued under Registration Number PA0000977609. These productions are the focus of this project.
It took all of the funds I had saved to produce the first Copyrighted movie, The Patricia Hope Story in 1999. I haven’t had the funds since that time to film and produce the new sections. The expenses of the first movie included but was not limited to paying for actors, actresses, camera crews, the Director, transportation to fly to the Dominican Republic since parts of the story took place there.
The "screen shots" may appear a little blurred since the movie was "stopped" to take the pictures.
I have not done anything commercially with the film to date. I personally used a few of the excerpts from, The Patricia Hope Story, for the purpose of educating and training some of the first responders and others in Texas, about 500,000 people since 1999. I never charged anyone for the training. I only authorized temporary use of excerpts and nothing was permitted for the exclusive use to anyone or any entity other than myself. I own all legal rights to the production and authorize Kickstarter to present this information and material on their Web site for the purpose of this project. It's been sitting on the shelf since 1999, 15 years. I am the Producer and a friend of mine, Lee Southern, was the Director of the previous production, The Patricia Hope Story.

I found out about KickStarter and here I am. I promise to produce a very highly entertaining and engaging product with extraordinary original scenes. The new proposed scenes will include but not be limited to an underwater scene – dancing scene, music concert, and much, much more. These scenes really happened in my life and are true. I want to share many real experiences with you, your family and friends.
The average Kickstarter pledge is $70. We will reach our goal of $200,000 when 2,858 people pledge that amount, then we can make the feature-length film. Another theory is the most common pledge amount is $25, it would take about 8,000 people to pledge that amount to fund the movie project for completion. Budget includes expenses for: Kickstarter fees; Amazon fees; Reward manufacturing and distribution to Backers; Pre - Post production – duplication – copyright = distribution of final product “The Patricia Hope Story” -- Top 10 Film Festivals entry fees in the world; and the Premiere event.
BUDGET ESTIMATION: assuming the $200,000 is funded:
Kickstarter fee 5% charge of total = $10,000
Amazon estimated 3.5% fee (+ or -) = $7,000
Awards Costs & Backer Distribution = $20,000
Pre – Post Film Production (all) = $163,000
(including Premiere film festival fees/expenses)
Total = $200,000
Whether you give $1 or more, look into your bank account and pledge as much as you are able at this time. After your pledge, the money will not be deducted from your account unless we reach our goal of $200,000. Remember, we have a 45 day goal. Therefore, make sure and keep that money in your account for just over 45 days plus about 2-3 weeks. The extra 2 weeks is how long it takes Amazon to process the money from your account to theirs, and then several more days until deposited into our account. Thank you so very much in advance for backing this project!
Kickstarter Funding: with $200,000 I can complete my promise to you stated within this project! (including Awards and entrance fees into 10 top Film Festivals)
$500,000 = offers additional filming opportunities, using better audio, lighting and camera equipment,
$1,000,000 = reshoot everything in its entirety including previous footage: Additional funding means we can fine tune the film’s visual style and audio, add animation to parts of the true story for entertainment purposes, secure more musicians for the original soundtrack, to bring you a terrific finished project, and more;
$2,000,000 = offers all of the above plus the potential for actors and actresses of name recognition to hire for the newly proposed film project; this will enhance the project with opportunities to receive additional recognition, potentially increasing the chances for movie selection and distribution to the movie industry, once entered into the film festivals;language dubbing can be added for better positioning in film festivals located in various countries
$5,000,000 + = offers incredible opportunities for mine and your imagination to explore and enjoy…….
If we don’t reach our goal, I will get nothing, you will not be charged any money and we will be saddddddd!
You will better understand how powerful people, and people who know powerful people can cause a victim to be silenced, obstruct justice and get by with it for a long time, sometimes NOT forever….
Do you know that over 97% of abused children reported to the legal system are not protected by the legal system? A national average.
I did everything I could think of to protect her.
I believe with all my heart that children should be loved.
Thank you for your interest in this vital endeavor.
Exposure to violence is a national crisis that affects approximately two out of every three of our children. Of the 76 million children currently residing in the United States, an estimated 46 million can expect to have their lives touched by violence, crime, abuse, and psychological trauma this year.
Reward Manufacturing and Distribution to Backers:

Thank you for your time. Welcome to my family!
RISK AND CHALLENGES:
The sensitive scenes have already been filmed. Now we will film the entertaining scenes when the funding is completed. Then we will integrate the old with the newly proposed 45 minutes to complete approximately one hour and forty-five minutes of entertaining, engaging and unforgettable feature length film, The Patricia Hope Story, ready for film festivals.
Nothing will hold us back from producing The Patricia Hope Story, once funded! Our final production, design and technical teams are already in place; and producing this film will be our full-time job. We will proactively provide updates on production timelines and scheduling; and you’ll know when to mark your calendars for the Premiere.
We have experienced various difficulty in previous filming, as severe as a spouse of a participant passing away one week prior to filming - we had to find another replacement; to illnesses on the day of filming resulting with a “no show” substituting actors and actresses at the last moment; sound and light issues; cameras failing to work accordingly, as well as other issues. We are accustomed to overcoming issues, meeting deadlines and we continue working regardless of the setbacks. Setbacks do occur and we will be ready for them, overcoming them one by one.
We have set our eyes on the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and will do everything possible to have the film finished by mid 2015 for the deadline submission to that film festival. We intend to enter the project in 9 other film festivals throughout the world after this project is funded.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
