15 MINUTES: PSA ABOUT MALE RAPE VICTIMS

$1,002

                            SEX  

Now that I have your attention, I want to get to the point. We are making a short film about a student who is the victim of sexual violence. But this film is a little different. Typically, the victim is female and the rapist is male. But consider the following statistics according to R.A.I.N and the CDC:  

  • 1 in 10 rape victims are male.  
  • 1 in 16 male undergrads will be the victim of sexual assault while in college.  

I wrote the short film 15 Minutes with a few simple goals:  

1. To educate people about a little known and often rarely discussed fact of victims of sex crimes. A young college woman is the stereotypical poster child of a victim of a sex crime. But that is not the complete story.    

2. To encourage discussion and action.  

3. To help people understand that sexual assault is not a gender specific issue but a human rights issue.  

All victims of assault deserve to be believed and treated with respect regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, age or socioeconomic status. I strongly believe that in order to combat sexual assault we need to address that both men and women can be rapists and that anyone can be the victim of assault. We need to include men in the conversation for victims’ rights. They need to know that they have a right to speak up and to be heard. 

                                 Please help use speak up for all victims!

Our Estimated Budget:

Some things have already been paid for and locked in. Such as our airbnb for myself and my actress and the location we are filming this short. Between  airfare from Ohio and the Airbnb for San Fran and LA, I have spent a thousand dollars of my own money. But we still need your help. We still have  many outstanding expenses. I hope to have the crew paid for by the end of July and have had offline donations that appear to make this possible.  Here is a breakdown of our expenses so far. It does not include the cost of post production

The projecter is needed during the panel at Comic Con September 1st and 2nd.

Ford Austin - Producer

Ford Austin via IMDb page

Ford Austin works in both L.A. and New York traveling regularly for both stage and film productions. He originally submitted to be an actor but then realized SAG-AFTRA rules made it impossible for him to be in it. However, after looking at what I was doing and reading the script when we did our gofundme campaign a while back, he decided to donate and become a producer. If you become a producer then you would have shared credit with one very talented guy! You can like him on Facebook

Risks and challenges

With anything in life, there will always be challenges. Prime example: my Dell laptop computer that is around $2,000 bucks, died on me. I use it for all my editing. It will cost around $200.00 bucks to get it fixed. But I am rising to the occasion and will fight thru it. I have dealt with much worse.

Actors or crew get sick. Locations fall thru. But I always push thru and work with my team to find solutions.
