Humankind is extraordinary in its ability to adapt.
“Tin Soldiers” is a fascinating perspective film into the world of amputees, people who have spina bifida, and paralysis, all doing adaptive sports. This film is 100% independent, and the passion project of Ben Duffy and Michael J Sassano as well as executive producer Jeff Bourns.
This film can inspire people to make a change in their life through the power of commitment and sport.
To feel better psychically and mentally is a key to feeling better emotionally, which begins to resolve the hardest challenge people with these conditions face; overcoming depression. This film is about believing in yourself through adapting. We have documented people who have began their journey of healing and finding passion, and their flame can reach out to many others who desperately need it.
The reasons we are asking for $28,000.
Although we have completed the majority of the shooting for “Tin Soldiers” there is much left to do! We have begun the editing process which will incur some finishing expenses including paying for music rights, color correction, sound mix, and more. Upon completion we are planning on submitting to 10 film festivals, which all have heafty submission fee’s. In addition to film festival screenings, we would like to have premieres around the world! I used to think that it was important to have your film seen just in the USA, but then “HeartChild” was bought by a major TV station in Brazil. It was played 32 times, reached thousands of viewers, and thrived in a market I didn’t even consider previousaly. So its very important for us to globalize this film, because this issue can equally affect and inspire anybody.
We need $28,000 for:
– Sound Mixing
– Post production (editing)
– Color Correction
– Film Festival Submission Fee’s
– Music rights
– World Wide Theatrical Premieres
