Hello, my names is Divine Holmes. I am a film student at Arizona State University. I am raising money to create a film called Perception. The film tells a story about today current events involving police and black communities. The money raised will be used to pay for the film's production, crew, cast, and distribution. I will be collecting donations from now until October 2016.
For the last three years I watched news stories, court cases, and documentaries about police killings. Sean Bell's death shocked me as a teenager. Being only ten years younger than him, I visualized my older brothers going through the same experience. Michael Brown and Sandra Bland deaths inspired me to do research about police killings and black communities. With the knowledge I obtained from my research, I created the story Perception.
I appreciate everyone contribution, and will give all donors a special thank you in the credits! Thank you.
