This is an indie film! Most of our equipment has been begged or borrowed. We've been very creative and industrious when it comes to getting everything from locations to catering, but we still need some cash to put towards things like costumes, props, and kit rental. We're committed to running a professional production and that also means compensating our cast and crew for their talent and time. By donating, you are showing our collaborators that their work is valued not only by us but by YOU, the Good People of The Internet.
