We would love your support as we go forward with our new documentary short, Life Under the Horseshoe. We would like to produce a short reenactment with college actors paying tribute to Charlie Beck, a man that was paralyzed at an early age. This amazing man sat on the corner of “Spit & Whittle” on an old wooden bench providing advice and wisdom to all comers including the teenagers in town. He encouraged them to stay in school while helping them whittle their sticks. In the film will be a short reenactment of Charlie. He lived in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s so we are in need of period costumes, payment for the actors and production costs. We are asking $750 to cover the costs for a reenactment that will fit nicely into the documentary short. We would like to hire a young student led cast to portray Charlie along a small supporting cast of four people.
Thanks for any help that you can provide. Even spreading the word would be helpful. Thank you!
