We are so excited to begin our funding for Me & Marcy! This project is so near and dear to our hearts and we are so excited to have the chance to share it with you!
We have a goal of $5000 which we have full confidence we can reach! But not without you! Even if you cannot donate, a facebook like, an instagram follow, or a youtube subscribe would be absolutely incredible. You can find us all over social media with username @meandmarcyfilm. Spreading the word is our main priority. We know there are so many people who feel like their stories aren't being told and we have this amazing opportunity to bring it to light.
For far too long women on screen and the LGBT community have played one dimensional characters who are either props or exageratted sterotypes for drama. We don't see people that way so we're telling this story with honesty. We see so much bravery in the LGBT community and in women and it's high time they are noticed for it! We promise to remain authentic and hopefully give hope to these groups of people to reassure them they have a voice and that we are listening!
Our writer/director Tony Santiago has had this story in his back pocket for a while now. His diligent hard work over the summer landed him the grand prize of a mini-Alexa rental from our awesome and generous friends at Camera Ambassador of Chicago. They are providing us with all necessary Camera gear with a rental value of over $100,000!
We would also like to thank Columbia College of Chicago for accepting our project and providing their beautiful sound stage, the Media Production Center, as well as all needed grip and lighting gear.
We have SO MANY exciting things coming up, so stay tuned!
