Dear Family and Friends,

Life is hard without you!

We are in development of our final thesis film in order to graduate and enter the workforce. To make this a reality, we rely on donations from generous people like you. We are seven filmmakers joining forces to bring this original story to life. You know what they say: you only die once, right? We'd like to make this film before that happens. Any contribution goes a long way and is greatly appreciated!
