“One Liberation Under God” is a documentary film project. The goal is to promote love and understanding between the Church and the LGBT community. The film will be a collection of personal stories and experiences, with an intent to find common ground and develop unity. Ideally, I would like to include opinions and philosophies from all points of the spectrum, giving voice to all perspectives. 

Here’s the way it works: 

1. The more money we raise, the more places we travel. 

2. The more places we travel, the more stories we tell. 

3. Every dollar donated will go directly into the travel fund. No other budget is necessary. I’ll film with my iPhone, I’ll edit with my MacBook, and I’ll drive my car. 

Take a look at the map, also located below. Nashville is my current city, and northeastern KY is my hometown. Therefore, no extra funds are necessary to cover those interviews. Destinations closest to me will take top priority, so we can make the most out of the time and money we have. So why did we only set a $400 goal? Because that's how much it will cost to travel to the closest town (Atlanta) for our first group of interviewees. If we don't meet our goal, we don't get any of the money. But with KickStarter, there's no limit to how much we can surpass our goal! Therefore, the more money raised, the more towns we will be able to add to the itinerary.

Join the movement. Tell your story. Together we can show the world we don’t have to agree on everything in order to love one another.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk I've encountered with this campaign is setting a goal that is actually lower than what we hope to receive. While I would love to make it to every single town on our "wish list", I will only be able to go as far as the donations allow. In an effort to maximize resources, I will travel to the closest towns first. Hopefully, we will raise much more than $400! If and when we do, I will add towns (one by one) to the itinerary. In a nutshell, the end product will entirely depend on your donations.
