About this project
We just passed $11,000! Will we get to over 200 backers in the short time left?
Check out Zion's cute budget and help keep the momentum going as we look past $11,000:
"Family Restaurant" celebrates young children with gay or lesbian parents. It's set in a magical world filled with cute characters who reflect these kids' family lives. Set in a family restaurant, it features talking ketchup and mustard bottles among the colorful diner residents, as well as real children with gay or lesbian parents.
Due to the amazing response, we are looking past our bare minimum goal to a new fundraising goal of $11,300! If we make that, we will be able to film in a larger space and have even more LGBT families and their children in the film! We will also get a much better cinematographer than yours truly and have much better puppets and props. Please help us keep our momentum for this important and exciting project.
Background: I serve on the Board of Directors of Outfest, a prominent LGBT film festival. Each year, Outfest has a family day for children to watch movies, but there are very few family-friendly films where these kids can enjoy a fun story that reflects their own lives. It's time to make something specifically for these wonderful children, with a story that's charming enough to appeal to all young people.
My producing partner on this is Jamie, who also happens to be one of Zion's dads. This short film project is a gift to Zion, who is a very special guy in my life. Children with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender parents need our support. Whether their parents identify as GLBT, LGBTQ, questioning, out and proud, or living quietly, these kids will enjoy a movie where they see their families. The more money we raise, the better the film will be!
Please help us reach our new $10,000 goal. Thanks for visiting, and we would deeply appreciate your support!
This film is written to appeal to children ages 4 to 10, but it will have a general audience appeal as well.
