I’m asking for your support.
I’m raising funds for my darkly comedic short film, LITTLE MISS JIHAD, which won the pitch competition at the 2011 Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival (Emerging Category). It’s a wonderful prize; but it’s not enough.
Specifically, I’m raising funds to pay my key crew and talent, who are all local emerging filmmakers and diverse artists.
I’ve spent a lot of time interning and working for free in the film industry over the past few years. That is why it is incredibly important to me to be able to pay my crew something. In my humble opinion, that’s the only way to encourage emerging filmmakers and artists to stay in this industry.
So I’m asking for your help. Even if you’re only able to donate $5, that would mean the world to this project. And if you’re not able to, I understand. Believe me, I’ve been there… for most of my short career in this industry. But if you could help spreading the word, we would be more than grateful.

I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that my crew and talent are paid. I thank you dearly in advance for all your support.
*EDIT UPDATE*: To clarify, we have applied to grants, but we won’t know for four months (mid March 2012) about their decision. And there is no guarantee we’ll get them. At most, they will cover hard Production and Post-Production costs. But not labour. They will not cover enough to pay my actors and crew. That is why I’m asking for help. Thank you for understand and your support.
