Hey guys, I've come to this campaign from an email sent by Encounters. I think that not only do your story and characters sound fantastic, but the film is clearly based on a very real issue and it's super important that people are more aware of it. I have watched a lot of crowdfunding campaign videos and I really think you have done a superb job with yours; clear and concise and yet it left me feeling inspired. Congratulations on the hard work you have put in so far, well done for standing out in what can often be an industry that is not particularly inclusive and I am 100% sure that this campaign will succeed and that the film is going to be excellent. Keep going!
