Campaign Description

Simplistique media is a film, tv, and digital media production company that focuses on stories of inclusion and acceptance by creating space to help others vocalize their dreams and aspirations. The goals of our campaign are to bring together a team to create quality content that will lead to further revenue generation and support either through building an audience or community and acquiring future grant funding or broadcasting support. We will begin by creating a pilot project to inspire a movement of empowerment and inspiration. When we create the final project, we will host a screening of the final project(s) and expand how we can take what we learned from the process to help others tell their own stories. I am often approached as a filmmaker to make films or share stories about issues that people face, and the most significant challenge an often be the funding required to do a quality project. I want to create a digital platform to tell these stories in a respectful and impactful way will help us give back to our communities.
