Hi! My name is Lesley Steele I'm a current graduate filmmaking student at School of Visual Arts in the Live Action Short Film program.I am extremely excited to be directing a new film titled 'Destiny Jones.' I created the story a few years ago in an Animation course and loved the character so much I decided to develop her story, write a script and make a low-budget, high quality short film. Here's a quick synopsis and log line of the film!
Logline: In the midst of solving a child rape case, Destiny Jones a NYC detective faces the unforgivable.
Synopsis: A female detective working in a tough neighborhood in the Bronx has finally found the right case to come along for her to arrest her stepfather – completely innocent but guilty of sexual abuse years earlier – and the abused was she.
As a graduate filmmaker I am gaining real-world experience in the filmmaking industry, working with producers, actors, crew, writers and beginning the process of becoming a young film director but I need your help. This is not just a film that's going to live on a hard drive, but it is a story and medium of filmmaking from a young director's perspective, heart and imagination with professional talent executed throughout the entire process.
What We Need
Making a film is a challenging, collaborative effort with one of the most rewarding payoffs but it's not easy raising the funds needed to make the picture. With the help of a producer I've developed a budget which will fully launch the film into pre-producuction, production and post-production, where all the magic happens.
Other Ways You Can Help If you aren't able to contribute, I understand. But I do ask if you can share the film with friends and family, email blasts, social networks, everything makes a difference!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
