Growing Pains - Short Film

I am a student making a short film portraying the world of Michael Myles, a 19 year old boy who suffers from a stutter. He wants to battle his demons and conquer his fear of the unknown to move on with his life. From having a stutter myself, I want to raise awareness on speech impediments and show one individual and the trials and tribulations that they go through. The Kings Speech helped do this but I want to make a much more relatable product that gives hope for suffers of speech impediments that you can do something with your life, but also shows the mainstream what it is like to actually have a speech impediment I need funding to get this product in to production,for expenses of the actors, paying for travel costs and catering. The money will not benefit me, I just want to make sure I can get the actors that I want to benefit the film. My research site showing the films development can be found here: http://ryanalboroughrtp.yolasite.com Thanks for taking time to look at my pitch and I hope to hear from you. Anything you give helps me out massively, I am so grateful. Many thanks Ryan Alborough
