About

"John" is a feature documentary about two abuse and human trafficking survivors, as they share their firsthand accounts of sexual abuse, exploitation, and survival.  Though Michelle and Nick grew up in separate towns in the U.S., what are the chances of them being linked to organized crime?   What sets "John" a part from many human trafficking documentaries you see out there, is that it is an uncut, uncensored, and raw take from the people that lived it.  This not only is a story of survival, but it is a story that continues to unfold even up to this day.  We have taken the production knowledge that we have obtained in narrative filmmaking, and applied every bit of production value into this documentary.  As filmmakers, our goal is to create a story, that is not only breathtaking, but inspiring to say the least." We are trying to raise $25,000 for feature documentary, "John."  We began production in the beginning of January 2013, and is now in its final stages of principal photography.  We are looking to raise completion funds, to further our investigation and interviews for the documentary.  We recently received support from various human trafficking tasks forces, to provide interviews for the film.  We will be using this money to travel to the various locations to film our interviews, as well as to rent equipment, and hire necessary crew. We also, are going to be filming re-enactments for the documentary, and part of the funding will go to that.  A lot of our research, contains undercover work, so part of funding will go to aide us on obtaining footage, whether it be from stock footage or undercover footage.   Finally, the remaining part of funding will also go into post-production, in where will need to obtain a film editor, film composer, and sound editor.  When the film is completed, we will use part of the funds, to promote, as well as to submit to various film festivals.

Risks and challenges

Some of the risks involved in completing the project, is that some of the footage is very risky and dangerous to obtain. We are going undercover exposing human trafficking and sexual exploitation, and footage like that is hard to get. On top of using up all of our own financial resources, it has created a challenge for us to complete the film. The crew we have on board is more than qualified to oversee and overcome the challenges, having over 20 years of film industry experience.
