What is "Para Mi Hermano"?
"Para Mi Hermano" is a short film written and directed by Kevin W. Burke. The film is being produced in Austin, TX with the goal of being accepted to the 2012 SXSW Film Festival. The story of "Para Mi Hermano" follows a man's day after he chooses to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his brother from gang punishment. We follow the man as he says goodbye to his brother, cooks himself a delicious meal, and lives the consequences of his decision. As of December 2010, "Para Mi Hermano" is in pre-production.
What's this money for?
This fundraiser will cover the production costs of making the film, i.e. costumes, props, transportation, equipment rental, set dressings, etc. Without this money, the film will suffer from not having enough resources. This money is needed for production costs alone. We've already established funds for sending the film to festivals, and money to pay our cast and crew isn't included in this fundraiser. Please help us tell this beautiful story!
Why will this film be successful?
This film is taking a new look at the crime genre by focusing entirely on the human element of its main character. The film asks what is important us? How should we live? These questions will be addressed in a fresh and original way in this short film.
