I was accepted into the Los Angeles Film School on May 8th of this year. Since that day, I have done nothing but try to raise money to cover what the government loans and grants I have received will not. There is a fifty thousand dollar difference between the two amounts. I have begun a campaign through PayPal and GoFundMe so that people can donate to the cause if they so choose. I have gotten a response from people all over the world. What I have not gotten is donations. That is what I need most. I am doing everything I can to make up the difference in the three months before school starts. On Monday, I am going to be filming a documentary in town on how the economic downturn has specifically affected the people who live here. It is the first salvo in an effort to bring a voice to those who do not have one. I do not know if the documentary will be effective or not but at least I will be doing something. It is also a chance for me to prove that I deserve to attend film school as much as any other person currently attending or graduated. Film is a passion and a constant beacon of light in my life. It has been a passion of mine for many long years and it is the source of a fire that has not and will never go out. I want viewers to have a momentary escape from their lives as I did. I want to give them something to focus on other than the pain. I do not want to have to read about another young person committing suicide when someone else convinced them that their life was not worth living. I do not want to have to read about another person going to jail because someone convinced them to do something in an effort to become cooler. I want to remind people that it is possible to overcome bullying and to become stronger as a result. I want to use film as a platform to inspire an entire generation to create the impossible. Everyone always talks about making dreams come true. Now is the chance to prove that you mean that message each and every time that you say it. I cannot do it on my own. I need your help to send a message to bullies all across the planet that torment is not always effective and that when you torment someone there is a chance that it will backfire and the person you tormented will rise from the ashes stronger than ever. That is the reason why you should respond to this letter and help me get to film school.
