About the Project
This will be the first motion picture produced by a Catholic Parish and will focus on reaching the young adult audience. The future relies on the seeds we plant today and in order to make an impact on that future and lay a path full of hope, it is with great anticipation that Siena Pictures will be pushing for a theatrical release for the “Five Blocks Away” movie in 2014.
Synopsis of the Film
Anthony Seton lives the modern definition of the perfect life. Young and handsome, with a successful job and an active social scene, everything that today’s society covets seems well within his grasp. But when a series of circumstances challenges the foundations of that world, he realizes that life as defined by secular truths may not be much of a life at all—and that the real answer is a lot closer than he thinks.
About the 50 Day Campaign
It is all or nothing. We are giving the project 50 days to raise the necessary funds to start production. If by March 31st we have not reached our goal, all the money will be returned back to the donors and we fail to become a voice of truth, forgiveness, and hope that we so desperately need to share through this film. Right now, we are asking you to consider joining our team and supporting the making of Five Blocks Away with a donation or becoming one of our major investors. Through this online campaign, we are planning to raise the funding for this film. Just as important, we are hoping to find thousands of voices to join with ours in spreading the word about this upcoming feature film. It is through your generosity, prayer, and communication that this film will be a success and reach millions across the nation.
How We Need Your Help and Support
Success will be achieving the budget goal of $550,000 from donors. If we surpass that goal, it would be fantastic! Please help us spread the word by posting links to this page on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, your blogs, and your email list. Spread the word to your family, friends, your church, and your coworkers. We can’t do it without you!
We’d like to ask you not just to support us financially but also to pray that the message of hope will shine through strongly in the film and in the lives of those who are producing it.
