My name is Sydney Morgon and I have a chance this fall to direct a short film I wrote.   The short is about a Police officer named Logan that gets involved in a shooting who is then placed on administrative leave.  The film focuses on the struggles he faces while on leave and the stress of whether being able to return to work or not.  
     To make this story come to life I am in need of money to help pay for certain expenses such as cast, crew, locations, props, costumes, etc. 
I will need the funds before the filming takes place in order to have everything locked down and prepared ahead of time.  
     This is a story that hits home for me.  Growing up with two police officers as parents definitely  gives me such an appreciation for what the law enforcement community does.  This is my way of giving back, being able to create something that is real and authentic some will be familiar with.  I hope you choose to help this project in support with law enforcement.
