Restless and alone, Lily is struggling to break free from the less-than-ideal life she’s been living. Unable to recapture her dreams and going nowhere fast, Lily finally accepts a mysterious invitation from a group calling itself The Magical Fantasy Building Brigade—a decision that ultimately leads her to self-discovery in the most unexpected ways.

Welcome to Lily Look Here, a short-film project at which we've been toiling away for over two years now. We are pleased to say that we have finally reached a point with the final script — and accompanying storyboards — with which we are extremely happy, and thus, are currently moving forward with the production of the film!

Lily Look Here, written by (younger brother) Patrick Strange, will be (older brother) Shannon's third short film as director, and we're very much looking forward to the challenges that will arise when making it, as well as the pleasure of bringing it to you. We have created this page to share the process with everyone, and to also ask your help in bringing Lily's story to life.

Our Goal
We are seeking your help in hopes to reach our immediate budgetary goal of $5,000. We truly believe in the potential of the script and Patrick's original thematic concept, and have come to realize that in order to capture not only the story but Shannon's directorial vision, we’ll need to enlist the help of talented actors, creative wardrobes, engaging art direction, interesting locations and the many other intricacies that are required to create a short film of this caliber. This film addresses many of the themes most important to us and to our family and friends - loss, grief, freedom of choice, hope, and ultimately, making magic out of an ordinary life - and thus, we need the best resources to accurately communicate our message through art.

We truly appreciate anything that you can give. Although short films are not made for economic return, they indeed have tremendous creative and cultural potential, and we ask you to join our effort to make something worthwhile, and in turn, share with us its rewards.

Yours,
Patrick and Shannon Strange

(And yes, those are our real names, for better or worse!)
