About this project
Collapsing in exhaustion, the dancer changes her focus when she realizes the purpose of her gift. "Shine" follows the journey of a young dancer who falls in love with movement only to struggle with impossible perfection. Discovering her true calling, she is able to freely Shine!
Donating is your single chance to own the film since distribution is only online!*

*I have permission to use the music but I do not know if I have permission to share the music as a soundtrack. I have contacted Shonlock asking what he and his label will permit. Since I will own the footage, your DVD copy will definitely have that. I'm hoping they give permission for the limited release download and DVD to be accompanied by the song so you enjoy the music so much you go buy the cd and tell your friends! It's a great album! And remember: if you didn't pay money for it, the people who created it aren't getting paid! Musicians need jobs too! And if you buy the album because you heard about it from me, please tell Shonlock! Email: Contact@Shonlock.com

You're moving ahead with filming, but I wasn't charged because the kickstart didn't make the goal. How do I get funds to you?
I'll be restarting the Kickstart in a couple days for the goal of $500. Filming took more out of me than I expected! Blog video from filming day coming soon!
