About this project
UPDATE: We've reached our goal! But there's still more that we can do. By raising another $1000, we'll be able to:
- Rent professional quality lenses for our camera
- Hire a professional sound designer and mixer
- Hire a professional makeup artist
- so much more...
Any extra funds will go straight onto the screen. Join the team and help us make this an incredible short film!
In the short film, Flower, Lola is a seventeen-year old girl struggling with broken relationships. When she discovers she is pregnant, everything she hoped would give her meaning is put in jeopardy.
Flower is a project that Micah Rose Emerson and Jesse Koepke have been collaborating on since 2008. A lot of films have been made about pregnancy and abortion but Micah Rose and Jesse felt that those films only dealt with the surface issues and not the deeper questions. Flower is about those questions, and after working on the script for literally years, the film is finally ready to be made.
The cast and crew is assembled. All that's needed is you.
