JUST LIKE-- LITERALLY-- THE ENTIRE WORLD, WE HAD TO CHANGE OUR PLAN.
WE LOVE SEED & SPARK AND WHAT THEY DO FOR FILMMAKERS, BUT WE PLANNED THIS CAMPAIGN DURING A TIME WHEN "PANDEMIC" WAS ONLY A FILM GENRE...
SO. UPDATE. WE'RE RETIRING OUR SEED & SPARK CAMPAIGN. WE DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT IN TRYING TO RAISE THE 80% REQUIRED TO KEEP OUR FUNDS, ESPECIALLY DURING A TIME WHEN IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING IS UP IN THE AIR-- OUR JOBS, INCOME, SECURITY AND PLANS HAVE ALL CHANGED SO DRASTICALLY AND WE KNOW THEY HAVE FOR EVERYONE ELSE AS WELL.
BUT ALL IS NOT LOST. THINGS HAVE CHANGED, BUT OUR ARTISTIC VISIONS HAVE NOT. WE STILL PLAN ON CREATING FILM, VIDEO, ART AND SCRIPTS DURING THIS TIME OF SOCIAL ISOLATION AND INVITE YOU TO JOIN IN OUR VIRTUAL COMMUNITY BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF COOL STUFF PLANNED LIKE WRITING GROUPS, SCREENPLAY CONTESTS, LIVESTREAMS AND MORE!
IF YOU'RE STILL INTERESTED IN BECOMING A PATRON OF OUR ARTS JUST CLICK THE LINK AND WE'LL KEEP THIS PARTY GOING :)
Chicago was good to us! I’ve never had such an incredible festival experience in my life—accepting Best Short Film at the #1 Arthouse Film Festival in the world is definitely still surreal to me. Filmmaking has so many setbacks and challenges but it’s experiences like these that inspire me to keep at it. btw, we found out BOTH our actresses got nominated for Best Actress!
We're speechless! Thank you Grapevine Film Festival for screening Mother's Day, we're so honored to win Best Actress and Best Director! So proud of our team!
TRANSFORM FILM FEST IS AUSTIN'S FIRST WOMEN'S FILM FESTIVAL EXCLUSIVELY FOR TEXAS WOMEN. April 5 & 6

Cheers to everyone who helped make this film happen! Screening Mother's Day Film at SXSW was a real honor. We're excited to bring you more in 2019. Thanks for everyone’s support and encouragement!
Oh man, we can barely contain ourselves...you guys, we are SO thrilled to share that Mother’s Day is an official selection of Austin Film Society’s SXSW Shortcase! We screen at 4pm at AFS Cinema March 9th. Tickets are FREE so come celebrate with us and the other talented filmmakers with a screening and Q&A after the show.
So excited to announce our win for Best Directing at LA Under the STars Film Festival!
Couldn't do this without our incredible team of artists and collaborators. Here's to you guys!
