About

THE STORY

A young professional woman named AJ has lost her way by self-medicating herself not with drugs, alcohol or sex but work. She is a Marriage and Family Counselor and her office has become her self imposed prison. Loneliness has become her bitter companion. However, during those quiet moments, AJ remembers past painful abuse that led her to her present situation.

She is blinded by everything that is superficial only experiencing others’ connections but not her own. Her clients have issues that parallel her own. She is very good at what she does but it is stealing her joy. But, what they all have in common is that through the pain and disappointments there is still hope to turn it around someday in order to find the happiness we all strive for.

She’s able to give them sound advice and help her clients overcome their fears and insecurities; but healing her pain is a different matter. Until one day a handsome stranger comes along, she enjoys his company on the track but when he’s wants to take their interaction to the next level; doubts, insecurities and fears take over. She wonders if he's the man of her dreams or just another nightmare.

THE JOURNEY

The idea for this project came from my years of working and building friendships with therapists through Social Services. Also, therapy can have be viewed negatively so I want to show the benefits of therapy to those who are uncertain about it. Love is a universal language and today more people struggle with finding the "secret" to having a passionate, long lasting, fun and healthy relationship. Humans complicate things by nature, but in most cases things are simpler than we think. This is the basic concept of the project.

LOVE THERAPY was shot in 8 days with a minimal crew for $15,000. At our office location, we shot upwards of fifteen pages a day for four days in order to wrap that location on time because of our tight budget.  My crew was EXCELLENT, they worked hard, fast and as a TEAM. The Director, Director of Photography, Assistant Director, Gaffer and Script Supervisor were all women.

My actors were professional and a pleasure to work with. Especially my lead actress, Erika L. Holmes who had a ton of dialogue to remember, so I want to THANK them for their passion, hard work and support. Even though there were challenges, we got the job done and that is always a great feeling.

So now WE NEED YOUR HELP to finish this project! The project is at it's completion stage and we need $10000 to see it to full achievement. Principal shooting is done so we are now in the post production phase. To complete this stage and for minimal distribution we need to do the following:

PICKUP SHOTS
PICTURE EDITING
SOUND EDITING
COLOR CORRECTION
MUSIC                                                                                            PROMOTIONS                                                                                           FESTIVALS                                                                                               

But, $2500 will get us the basics, this project wants to be the LITTLE FILM THAT COULD do more and be more then most would expect. Since the campaign amount is $2500 dollars but to make it better quality movie $10,000 is needed.  This is why the Executive Producer was created under reward section.

LOVE BUTTONS

I don't bake for just anyone, only for the special people in my life. So that is why I decided to bake for you because this is my way of giving back to those who decided to support this project.

This is a HEART FILLED THANKS from me to you!!

Four heart shaped palm sized sweet treats made with red velvet cake and your choice of a special coconut/nutty filling or fruity filling. This special treat is topped with a dark chocolate button design and that is where it gets its name.

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE LOVE AND SUPPORT!!!

Risks and challenges

Pickup shots are a challenge because more is necessary than expected to improve the quality and length of the project. There are a few sound issues that need to be fixed and distribution will be a huge challenge due to the cost of marketing. But, during the editing process my editor will identify the areas that need pick up shots and I will devise a plan to execute them. The sound issues can and will be fixed with a sound editor and the distribution will start with film festivals and then video on demand. I'm researching online and offline low cost marketing options. If there is a will, there is always a way!
