The World Health Organization estimates that by 2020, suicide rates will double from 1 in 40 to 1 in 20 people taking their lives. Suicide affects us all and I wanted to show a complicated, yet honest story about survival, loss, and the strength of women in the midst of brokenness and fragility. We need each other so much more than we let on, and “Spiraling” is our road back to that while breaking type casts and having a long overdue conversation about suicide—and hope.
WHO WE ARE
Writer/Director: Dawn Garcia
Starring: Kearran Giovanni, Lauren Bjel, Juan Riedinger
We are a cast and crew of passionate storytellers. We are all in Los Angeles and will film in this incredible city that has supported those who dare to dream. We’ve come together as a team of creatives with diverse skill-sets to share a story we believe needs to be told.
What We Need & What You Get
We have set a goal of $25,000-$35,000 to complete our short film.
We have raised 10% of our goal so far. We need your help.
The production fees include the cost to film in Los Angeles, production cast, crew, pre-production, post-production including editors and sound design, and submit to local and global festivals. Making this film will be a ton of hard work so that we can make something beautiful, powerful, and necessary—and we need your help to make it happen! Every contribution helps, no matter how small!
To show you how much we appreciate your support we are providing a few great perks you will receive for your donation. Perks range from private screener links, producer credits, behind-the-scenes signed photos, and signed props.
We’re hoping to reach our goal so we are able to make, produce, and complete this film! Any additional funds raised will go toward volunteer workers, suicide prevention and festival submission fees.
