About

So Mark, I hear you are making a documentary film?

Yes, I am making a documentary about two families whose lives have been devastated by drugs and alcohol. These people’s stories are amazing and need to be told, as they are very eye opening and inspirational. My film project is focused especially on the various family member’s perspectives and reactions in the wake of the devastating illness of addiction. When I met these families I was touched by both their pain and strength. I realized when dealing with the human mind, solutions to these complex problems are not simple.

Why are you doing this?

I have spent the last few years learning about addiction while I have been developing software to enable communication between people that struggle with this disease. I was overwhelmed with the facts about the epidemic of drug overdose deaths especially in my local community. I have seen some great films about the problem. Honestly, some of them are amazing. I really have learned so much. What I feel is missing are enough films about hope, and ones that detail how people deal with the unimaginable reality of losing a child to drugs.

Why now?

Sometimes life gives you an opportunity to do something really important. It is not always easy to see the signs clearly, and it often takes great risk. I know many parents with adolescent kids. Most of their kids won’t die of a drug overdose, but some of them will. The film offers hope and insight when dealing with something that has become an epidemic in our country. There are great people doing meaningful things to address this problem. I want to inject some of their wisdom into the story of these two families as we navigate through their painful experiences.

What is the problem?

Nowadays a 14 year old can look and seem quite grown up. We don’t always remember they really are just 14 years old and their brain will not be fully developed until they are in their early to mid 20s. This film endeavors to explore these facts from a human experiential perspective.  It reveals the important realities that we face through the stories of real people – and is supported with information from ER doctors, kids, educators and interventionists. I explore the relationships within these families and how they have faced their circumstances with a loved one consumed by drug or alcohol usage. Through this film I hope people’s hearts can be moved and inspired. My goal is to portray this whole reality in a unique and human manner.

What stage are you at on your project? 

We have filmed a lot of footage already and have a well-developed script. We plan to do this for the budgeted amount. We are confident this film will be meaningful. We have assembled a great team of expert participants and advisers from treatment professionals, interventionists, drug and medical experts, therapists, recovery services to parents who have lost children, addicts in recovery and students’, all who provide an important perspective. All of these participants offer synergy to the overall storyline of these two families experiences. We are going to finish the project by February 2014. We have done most of the preparation already and, with the contributions I have made financially, we are working on it every day. We need additional financial support to step up the pace and get access to more equipment, increased support staff and additional postproduction resources.

Why Kickstarter? 

Kickstarter is an amazing way to reach out to your base of supporters and enable them to reach out to others in their circles of friends and loved ones that share a commitment to telling a beautiful and relevant human story. It is a fantastic way to get others involved in the creative process. The rewards process is so equitable. With the amazing community that this program allows us to gain access to, we also have an opportunity to reach a larger group of like-minded persons who share the common objective and wish to see small films being completed. The social media tools that exist today make our project something that can be done. I believe that Kickstarter will open doors of opportunity for us because of the reach it has and the interest that exists in our topic. 

Our Rewards

Risks and challenges

The risks for completion of "Enough is Enough" are really economical. We need to raise the funds to get this movie completed. We already have invested a tremendous amount of time and money to get it to this point. The challenges we are maintaining the intimacy and seriousness of the real tragedies that the main actors in the film have faced, while at the same time making the message appealing and one that people understand.
