About this project

We are asking for $30,000 to help with expenses involved in making an independent film about a new medical discipline called Palliative Care. Resilient Hearts follows a palliative care team as they work to bring comfort and compassionate care to their dying patients and families. The main character, Michael, is a nurse practitioner who brings his unique personality, honest caring, and sense of humor to the bedside to support and celebrate the lives of his dying patients. He is one example of the members in a palliative care team and the skills they bring to support their patients. Resilient hearts is a film intended to educate, entertain, and to stimulate important end of life conversations. It emphasizes the importance of compassion, humor, and the need to retain our humanity in the often cold  and mechanized world of medicine.

Risks and challenges

We have all the actors lined up. We have all of the shoot locations lined up and ready. We have insurance. The only thing that can hold us back is if some actors can't show up. We will have some members of the crew that have acting experience and for small roles they can just fill in if we can't shoot the actor that can't make it another day. Since I'm the Producer/Director/Editor/Webmaster.....and I have experience with lighting and cameras.....I can fill in for any of the crew that can't show up. Plus I have an AD who is an actor and also the 1st AD and they can fill in other crew members jobs. We think we have everything covered and even plan to shoot into September if needed. We have plenty of PA's signed on for filling in background actor work, and making sure everything is covered.
