As you may suspect, producing a video requires a great deal of work, persistence, and of course, money. In order to complete Homesick, I am seeking individual contributions and company sponsorships that will enable me to complete the video, publicize and share with a national audience what I continue to discover about living with MCS. Your contribution is tax-deductible.
When completed, I will submit the video to “POV” a national public television program that screens documentaries as well as to the Discover Health Channel and then many local public and community access stations. PBS has aired only one show related to this topic to date. I also plan to have the first video screening at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where Funny You Don’t Look Sick premiered. I will arrange media interviews around each of these screenings. I will submit the video to many documentary film festivals. Because of my existing successful relationship with the Cinema Guild Film distribution company for the past 10 years, I feel confident about contracting with them or another national distributor enabling to get the video out to university and college libraries, public libraries, disability organizations and health advocacy organizations across the country such as the American Lung Association and National Asthma and Allergy Foundations. The video will also be available throughout the medical and chemically sensitive-related communities and organizations and through the Homesick web site.
Please take a few minutes to view the Homesick preview, and let me know what you think.
