About this project
because love should be simple .... not complicated....
WHAT IS THIS FILM ABOUT
Inspired by a true story, 'Sin' is an American Feature Film which will bring to life an emotional tale of a teenager who was killed by public hanging along with his partner in Iran because he was gay.
Videos and pictures of this sad incident were released online in July 2005, but the world forgot about it soon after.
Through this movie we will get to know this teenager's life, whose only crime was that he wanted to be accepted by his society, with his true identity.
By this tragic story we will be addressing an important question; Why some people who are in love don't have the same rights, as others? Is it just because they are different from what the world expects them to be?
HOW IS THIS FILM DIFFERENT
We will be taking our audience to a new culture, a society where things are different from the western world. With never before seen locations and unique style of story telling this film be a new experience for movie goers.
Along with American cast and crew we will also be collaborating with international artist and film technicians to bring a completely diverse experience for viewers.
For 'Sin' movie background music and original soundtrack we will bring together fusion of Persian, Indian classic and American artists making it first of its kind.
WHY WE NEED TO MAKE THIS FILM
There are no words in any language to adequately convey the level of sympathy, and body-crushing grief for someone losing their life because they are gay or lesbian.
This film has the potential to open hearts and minds, which is the only way equality will become a reality.
The world through this film will get to know that being straight, gay, bisexual, or transgender isn't the defining feature of who that person is. Rights shouldn't be based on something so personal. There is no reason for the horrid and rampant inequality. All are created equal, no one is better than another.
Our story is about a person whose rights and opportunities were treated less importantly than those of other people in the same society, which is a global fact today regardless where you are. There are many areas in which gays, lesbians, & bisexuals do not have the same rights and opportunities as others in society.
We believe this story deserves to be told and you can help make this campaign wonderfully huge and powerful by showing your love and support to make movie 'Sin' happen and be a part of delivering this message.
Let love live, wherever it may be. No beliefs should block innocent love or even passion. Love is eternal!
WE CAN'T MAKE THIS FILM ALONE - WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Every independent film costs money, and 'Sin' is no exception.
“Crowdfunding" is the best way that movie 'Sin' can happen, other funding methods would have had strings and ideas attached that would compromise the integrity of the story telling.
To make 'Sin' possible we need your help in raising $100,000.
With international locations, complicated sequences, and extensive production design $100,000 is the lowest we need to make this film possible. The more we will be able to collect, the better we will do justice to this film.
Your financing will facilitate this project to take creative risks, and deliver a vision like few others have ever attempted.
You can contribute to this movie in more than one way, by getting the word out to your friends and family, and let them be a part of this film.
HOW 'SIN' CAN BE IN THEATERS BY NEXT YEAR
We are motivated to make this movie as soon as possible, Sin's ambitious production schedule can be met if we immediately raise our bare minimum, fundraising goal of $100,000.
To all of you Kickstarter novices out there: if we fall short of our goal during the designated donation period, we will lose all money raised, along with the opportunity to make this film, as well as play a meaningful role in the burgeoning debate over equality rights.
