About


About

The reason why I started this fundraising campaign is because there is little empathy or understanding between different demographics. I am sure many of  you will love to hear about the successful story of a film that address challenging topics.  Some of the topics I will be addressing with this film are affirmative action, civil rights, reparations and welfare. Reverse Racism  will be ready to be shown next year once we finish the filming in  Berlin.  

Reverse Racism is a short film that brings together racism, discrimination,  Mean Girls, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Roots and The  Color Purple. The main focus will be to show racism from a different  point of view, showing how the laws that we have, that make it a level  playing feel for everyone, can affect the psyche of the people. This short film fits  within millennial’s upbringing because millenials might have been exposed  to toxic mindsets and not even realize it. This short film  will certainly not be for the masses. It will be unique because I am bringing a lot of genres together for this project of passion.  

Ever since I started to write the script and work on the project, I've had a lot of support from my teachers and family members. I do believe that the excitement has to do with the story which is specially relevant to today's racism and xenophobic ideas that the United States is experiencing. 

As you can imagine, making this project come to life is ambitious.  However, ever since I started working on it I have received the warmest support and honest feedback from everyone willing work with me on the project.  I’m asking you to help me fund this film so that it can travel in the US and the world next year!   

Best,

Tony

The Story

In a private school for the wealthy; arrives Emma, a new girl with a family background of political clout and extreme affluence. Ameera is a mixed girl who has experienced a lot by having traveled the world many times over. Both of the girls clash over their families upbringing, one is humble and has exceptional emotional intelligence and the other is spoiled in her upbringing. Discrimination, aggressions, emotions and mental states will be pushed to the absolute limits of social norms.

My forte in this projects are bringing the right people together, writing and directing.

Where will the money go?

Indie films could easily cost a couple million dollars to make.  Fortunately, years of working as freelance video directors allowed us to  hone our craft and learn how to make a lot with very little.  We managed  to refine our budget into the very minimum required to produce  something as ambitious as this. We're not paying ourselves. Most likely  everyone else involved will be working for far less than the industry  standard, because we all fiercely believe in this project.

This is a work of passion and every dollar  you give will go directly on to the screen. Currently we're budgeting for a 15  minute long film. However, if we exceed our goal, we'll be able to assemble an even bigger team and deliver a longer and more visually rich and story with a lot of substance.

Risks and challenges

The challenge that I face now is not being able to raise the funds to get the permits and locations that the film needs. Which is a farm for the part of the story which takes place in the 1700's and a present day mansion. However, I am confident that people of my generation and new organizers will be delighted to have this project ready next year to counterattack the perceived notions.

Furthermore, Reverse Racism is a very ambitious project. creating an indie film isn't exactly easy. The good news is that we already have a very good base. Many of my school projects were a great proof of concept to what we can accomplish with literally no money. We have a great story already written, so that eliminates a degree of worry right away.

Over time we have accumulated a network of professionals such as producers, editors, cinematographers & talent that we will collaborate with for Reverse Racism. Also, throughout the last weeks many passionate professionals have signed up - wanting to participate and help us make Reverse Racism. Once we have crossed the hoop of fundraising, we believe that it'll take us between 7 to 8 months to finish the film. We will be documenting our progress and all the project's milestones in the production diary so that our backers will have full visibility to the progress being made.
