Jamaican filmmaker, Aisha Porter-Christie, has launched an Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds for her film project, “Lost Boy.” Through the campaign, Ms. Porter Christie, a graduate of Ryerson University’s RTA School of Media (Toronto) and Columbia University’s Film MFA Program (New York), hopes to raise $4,000 USD. The funds will be used to cover post-production and finishing costs, as well as outstanding debt. The film explores the issue of missing children in Jamaica, where about 150 children go missing every month – it is a subject near and dear to the hearts of the filmmakers.
About the Film:
The story loosely adapts the premise of J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic to a modern, realistic Jamaican setting. It centers on Peter Clarke, an artful, precocious boy with a deep sense of adventure and a hero complex. When he discovers his best friend Marissa is in trouble, he tries to take matters into his own hands. But, as things quickly spiral out of control, he is forced to face reality – he is only a child, and not everyone can be saved.
Contributors will receive digital copies of the film, the poster, autographed DVD copies of the film, a key chain, t-shirt; associate producer, co-executive and executive producer credit.
