A year ago several teen agers and Nickel A Day Films sat down to discuss making a film. The teens wanted to tell a story that is unusual or never talked about. They had recently lost a friend age 17 to suicide. They all got a text message saying “ I should have done this a long time ago.” Then he was gone! The teens didn’t have a clue that there was anything wrong it seem to come out of nowhere. This bothered them. So we starting writing a script about teen suicide "The Hope Defined Project".
What signs there could be, or how to cope with different issues that affect teens. they also wanted to include what happens to family and friends when someone commits suicide.
After several revisions multiple meetings we have a 142 pages script. This narrative film allows teens to express themselves creatively while shedding light on the topic of suicide awareness.
The fundraiser is about the production of this film. We are ready for camera and lights. The film has been casts with local teens and adults from the Dupage County area just outside of Chicago, which has the highest suicide rate.
We are asking that you donate a minimum of $10.00 and pass the word about the film. We need your help to make this happen.
Suicide should not be a hush word! The rate of teens suicides is on the rise in the US and this film discusses awareness and some prevention by finding a creative way to express oneself.
We need the communities support to start the conversation about suicide and make teens aware there are other options, people to talk to and that you should worry about judgement. Mental health is nothing to be ashamed of. There is help!
Please make a donation today and send to your friends. Help these teens help ther fellow teens by making this movie possible.
