THE FILM

Sneak peek: watch the work-in-progress escape scene from JENNIFER, 42!

JENNIFER, 42 is a beautifully animated documentary feature film that tells the riveting true story of Jennifer Magnano, a suburban mom of three, and her journey through a 15-year brutally abusive marriage, the family's daring escape, and their epic battle to be free from the coercive control and violence of husband and father, Scott.

Voiced by Jennifer’s children–Jessica, David, and Emily–along with Jennifer’s best friend Tracy, and experts who were directly involved in the case, the story unfolds through dramatic twists and turns that will leave you speechless, but also motivated to speak up.

We believe that telling this powerful multi-voice narrative through animation will make this story accessible to all kinds of people. We hope that it will expose a wider audience to the most private and common kind of violence that women and children experience, and to prompt people to examine the tremendous obstacles they face when trying to bring that violence to light and setting themselves free.

While our goal is to demystify what goes on in domestic violence households, this is not a ‘sad battered woman’ story, it is not a ‘victim’ story. It is, however, a story about a brave family who fought like hell to get out of a bad situation and to get safe. They were smart, resourceful, resilient - and they fought mightily to get the proper help. This movie is about the twists and turns of that incredible fight - and there are funny moments, triumphant, even joyous moments.

WHY WE'RE KICKSTARTERING DURING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH!

We decided to crowdfund on Kickstarter not only because we need your financial support, but also because we want to build a great, big community of agitators, who will demand change. When you invest in our project, you are also taking an active role in fighting domestic violence, abuse, and coercive control. With YOUR HELP, we will bring a new awareness to these issues and how our criminal justice system and culture at large deals with victims vs. abusers.  Our goal is to bring the term ‘coercive control’ to the forefront of the domestic violence conversation, with an eye toward changing federal and state laws to criminalize coercive control, as the UK did in 2015.

JENNIFER, 42 gives us a rare view into one family’s dramatic struggle, but it also explores deeper cultural issues. The circumstances and conditions that created this perfect-storm-catastrophe for the Magnano family are the same conditions that lead to the murders of three women per day by their male partners in the U.S. These numbers, sadly, have not changed since the 1970s.  JENNIFER, 42 is a crucial cautionary tale for this time of #metoo, Time’sUp and female reckoning that upends everything we think we know about domestic violence. TOGETHER, we can kickstart real change!

WE NEED YOUR LOVE & SUPPORT!

JENNIFER, 42 is an ambitious project, but we believe the time has come for this kind of story, one that can fundamentally change how people think about domestic violence. We have shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get this far, and we are so excited to share our journey and all of what we have accomplished to date, but now we really need YOUR HELP to push this project into full production AND GET IT DONE!

For the past several years we’ve worked very hard – investigating, researching, recording hours of interviews, developing the story, and writing the script – but now we're launching into production! The team is growing, and so are the expenses. To assemble a creative team of this caliber and keep them working for months simply takes money. The rest - PASSION, DEDICATION, and MAJOR HUSTLE - we've got it covered!  Together, our growing crew need your PARTICIPATION to make the biggest impact we can.

The story is powerful, heart-wrenching and full of surprises. We want to make the most visually stunning animation we can, to bring you into Jennifer's world. But animation is a labor-intensive, expensive process, which means we'll need to hire a team of animators to work under Yulia's direction. Any size CONTRIBUTION YOU MAKE will increase our ability to realize this film's full potential in a way that does the story justice!

PRODUCTION PLANS

Once this campaign is complete, we will hit the ground running with the next phase: storyboarding the remainder of the film, and creating animatics to develop the timing and motion in each of the 30 scenes. At the same time, we'll be working with our sound designer to edit together the dialogue as well as create the sound-scape in which our animated world will live. Once the audio track and the animatics are fully roughed out, we will animate every shot. This is a multi-step process, including painting backgrounds, rigging and animating characters, coloring, shadowing, lighting and compositing. We will need lots of animators at different skill levels for this! Meanwhile, a composer will be working on music, and an audio editor will refine the audio track. Then, an editor will edit all the animated segments together into one dynamic, cohesive flow. And the last step is a final audio mix: dialogue, sound effects and music. And finally - we will release it into the world, where hopefully it will touch hearts and open minds everywhere!

Risks and challenges

The individuals whose voices tell this story has put themselves out there with the hope of raising awareness and changing the law. They are remarkable individuals, and we, as filmmakers, are humbled to be able to share their story. But this platform doesn't really work without your participation. Change only happens when a community rallies to demand it. We welcome you, wholeheartedly into this film's community. Thank you for showing up to make an impact.

We expect to be finished with the film by summer of 2019, but the animation process is complex and laborious so it may take a little longer for you to see the the film. We will of course keep you posted on our progress and let you know about any delays we experience. That said, we are working with a phenomenal and dedicated team who has the skills to get JENNIFER, 42 done!
