Orlando has Ignited a Fire
The past few weeks have been heartbreaking. Actually, that word is simply not strong enough. I don’t think our language has the word for it. So much loss, and fear, and ignorance, and LOVE.
I have hesitated to post since because I didn’t want to seem I was trying to use that tragedy to gain any advance for our film. But with the proximity – we live and will produce this film within 45 minutes of Orlando – and with the ignorance being shared from many in the “christian” community, I feel something needs to be said.
I simply want to remind you that you are loved. And I hope I can continue to respond with love. That’s what it’s literally all about at the end of the day. It is probably the hardest thing to do, but it is the only thing that brings lasting healing and changed hearts.
When we begin production in October, we will do so with a deep reverence. This story of love is as important as ever. It is my deepest hope that this movie will bring hope, healing, and prompt questions in those who seem so certain that it’s okay to think less of someone based on gender identity or sexual orientation.
It has been incredibly difficult finding investors for this film – many with the means are nervous to be associated with such a topic. But that is not stopping us. We are moving forward with the generous donations from our Kickstarter campaign last year and our single investor. If, in the meantime, we are able to find more investors, that would be awesome! But if not, we will still make something awesome together.
With the deepest love,
