WHY WE NEED KICKSTARTER?
There are key parts of the film which need to be shot in New York, so getting the funds to fly out crew and shoot on location is our biggest hurdle. The filmmakers have put in a lot of their own money, but there is only so much we can film with our resources.
So, we're turning to Kickstarter to reach out to those who understand the film's focus and want to see it hit the big screen. If the campaign is unsuccessful, the filmmakers will still make sure this project is completed 'By any means necessary', because we believe film's message. This means, well line up at the Blood Banks!
WHY SUPPORT THIS FILM?
Has a song every helped you get through a rough time in your life? Has a song given you the confidence to walk into a situation which you would have typically avoided? Are you a fan of musicians?
The filmmakers believe that Music can be just as helpful as Xanax to someone who has Anxiety or Depression. Through our research over two years, we have learned that music has been helpful to those on the Autism Spectrum, with speech impairments, or stroke victims. We believe in the POWER of music and think that MILLIONS of other people in the world do as well.

Risks and challenges
The main challenge of making this film is finding supporters of Music Therapy. Some people don't believe that music can make a large impacts on various mental disorders. They do believe that music make people feel different emotions, but that the extent of its power stops there.
We are seeking support from those who believe in the power of music and want to educate the naysayers by seeing a film like this released.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
