Danger Word: a wrap and support from director Julie Dash. Can you help us reach our goal?

UPDATED 6/5:  We just wrapped our two-day shoot with Frankie Faison and Saoirse Scott on our terrific set in Delancey, New York. We got great footage, and we’ll have a trailer ready soon. Then, last week, a surprise: groundbreaking filmmaker Julie Dash, who wrote, directed and produced the modern classic Daughters of the Dust, joined our list of donors. Imagine our excitement!  Dash is a pioneer in film—Daughters of the Dust was the first full-length film by a black woman with general theatrical release in the United States.

It’s a real boost of confidence that she believes in what we’re trying to do with Danger Word: we want to make an entertaining horror film that also makes a difference.

And we still need your help, too.

As you can see from the thermometer, we’re still a bit shy of our $15,000 goal to finish paying our crew for the shoot.  Not only was this crew of professionals willing to work on our indie, but they braved the cold and rainy weather without complaint during the shoot. Everyone involved, from cast to crew, was forced to be a warrior over Memorial Day weekend.

They had our backs when it mattered—and now we want to have theirs.
