Thank you for this opportunity to make my personal passion project come to life. I would use the prize to help with structure, hire a production crew (3 pt. camera interview set up, lights, sound, etc.), hire a post-production team (editing, visual graphics) and for film festival costs, distribution, advertising, photography.
My passion/purpose in life is filmmaking. My ambition is to lift peoples voices through strong story-telling. LA VALENTINA is a personal passion project based on my mother’s life-long passion of singing Mexican mariachi music. She is an inspiration, un orgullo to nuestra cultura and her talented life needs to be shared and celebrated with the world.
