My brother, the film maker!
This is one of my younger brothers, Alex Craig. He is an amazing, very talented film maker! He grew up going through Prestonwood Baptist Church’s youth and I believe he will be a huge success and witness for Christ in his industry!
This morning he sent an email out to a few of our family members, and I got to thinking, wouldn’t it be cool if some other people might decide there was something they could do to help him out a little bit! Thanks for your time and consideration!
For those of you that don't know, Alex is currently living in Grand Rapids attending film school. He has written a short film that he will be directing this month. The story is basically a modern day Cane and Able with a little twist. They will be filming in an old catholic cathedral and also a small car chase scene inside of a Hummer H1. He said he's pretty excited about that! He has a crew of 17 people and a cast of 8. Once this film is complete, he hopes to put it in some film festivals. The school has them fund their own films. Having such a large crew requires a budget to feed everyone while they are on set.
Alex thought he might as well say that if anyone would like to help fund the film in any size, big or small, it would be greatly appreciated! He will even put your name in the credits! I am adding a PayPal button at the very bottom of my blog if you'd like to donate. I'm a new blogger and don't have a ton of followers yet, so if you know of anyone else who you think might be interested, please direct them here as well. I know times are tough, so if you can't help, I totally understand. He's a student, and as of now he is funding the entire film out of pocket. 100% of your proceeds will go towards making this movie awesome!
Side note: A short film that Alex was director of photography and editor on, is now in an online film festival and is open for voting. You can click here to watch the movie and vote for it if you would like! It would be much appreciated! Oh and apparently, in order to watch the movie, you have to create an account. It only takes a minute. Have a great day everyone!
