Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2013
Director Dana Verde and team will be working to secure funding for A Promise, an inspirational film about a young single mother who has to face her past in order to give her son a better future. Philomena “Philly” De Silva (Nia Fairweather, American Academy of Dramatic Arts graduate) is a recovering alcoholic and who emerged from the foster care system. She has devoted her time to caring for her son Michael (Terrell Ransom, Jr., Days of Our Lives) while still carrying the baggage of her troubled childhood.
Verde will work on securing funding through an Indiegogo campaign that begins April 22, 2013. The filmmaker hopes to bring awareness to National Child Abuse Awareness month and children who grow out of foster care.
Verde is hoping to raise $10,000 to cover development costs including legal fees, key artwork, casting and publicity. People can donate $10 - $2,500 and will receive gifts as a thank you for their contribution. Gifts range from promise bracelets to the opportunity to be a featured extra in the film. All donors will be updated on the progress of the film through Twitter, Facebook and weekly newsletters.
