Who Are We?
We are a group of passionate and motivated students in our final year at California State University, Northridge. For our senior thesis project, we are creating an original twenty-minute pilot episode. While this project is a school production, we hope this project will expand outside of the classroom. This project may help our crew get noticed by future employers and could potentially make its way to film festivals. In order for our project to meet its full potential, we will need your support. We hope to raise a total of $16,000 all of which will go towards funding this film.
"Escape" is about a young woman and her three friends that go on a trip, then get taken into human trafficking, and must escape. This is an important story to tell as it raises awareness of the realities of human trafficking.
To find out more when our film premieres in May 2020! In the meanwhile, please help us raise money to make this film possible.

• Pay for locations & permit fees
• Transportation for our cast & crew
• Rent professional camera, sound, and lighting equipment
• Purchase wardrobe for our actors, as well as props & set design
• Provide catering for our crew of 15+ & our talent
• Pay any other production expenses while going forward
