About

This film is about parents and children and it is purposefully ambiguous. A father goes looking for his child. Is he really her father? Does she believe he is or does she think he is deranged? If he is her father will they ever be reconciled? Ultimately it is about how love shapes our behavior and the strength - or weakness of blood ties.

We need money for three things. Film festival entry fees, to put it on IMDB (International Movie Data Base), to pay our actors and to fix the sound. OK four. We plan to do a festival run (submit it to festivals) for at least 6 months. This will gain us visibility and credibility. Get our work known. After that it will be distributed in some form. Some of the festivals we want to submit it to are the Palm Springs International Shorts Festival. the Tribeca Film Festival, Slamdance, New York Lift Off Festival, Big Apple Film Festival, Manhattan Short Film Festival, Indie Boom Boom Film Festival, Taos Shortz Film Festival, Brooklyn Film Festival, and Katra Film Series. That's a starter list. There are literally thousands of film festivals you can submit your film to and they all have entry fees ranging from $30 to $100.

Who is the audience for our film? Everyone. A little more specific? Parents and children. Divorced fathers. African Americans. We have an African American director and an African American cast. And it is nice and short. 7 and a half minutes. Anyone who loves short.

The director is a black man who is prolific and creative. Talent like his should be encouraged. You can be part of his journey, a man who is bursting with ideas. 

Come join us. You will be helping talented people to find their voice in the world.

Risks and challenges

There are so many short films made every year. Thousands. How do you rise above the noise? You can't learn from your film until you have an audience for it. Making the film is the fun part. Marketing and promotion are the not fun part. It's a whole different skill set. That's part of the reason we are entering film festivals. So people who can help us get to know us. We just have to keep reaching out. We are learning more about that every day.
