Although the mission of this page is to generate funds to produce a MOVIE, you can still enjoy the video + images and then skip to "GIFTS" if you're not into reading about us. ENJOY!
The OMB community in Santa Monica, CA. has its beginnings in 1933, and every weekend throughout the years, it makes a strong IMPACT of support and self-confidence building on its regulars as well as on its visitors.
I am David "Soop" Frison, BELGIAN born and USA adoptee in 1994. One year later, I discovered OMB and have been a PROUD member since. www.DavidFrison.com
Now, childcare giver, actor and stuntman, I have acquired the tools and the knowledge to set in motion the production of a film depicting a mythical part of the world in a project others have been too intimidated to undertake.
Seeing how much goodness our community caters to kids and adults alike, I just HAD to film it all. So, through this FILM, the values imparted to OUR youth can now impact the rest of the World. Yep, being able to make "my" world a better place is something I am fond of.
$60.000 will cover two cameras, two microphones, a drone & pilot, editing hard- and software, archival footage and interviews, the athletes, a director photography (cameraman), and editor, a music composer, market the film at various film festivals and finding a distributor.
You will receive UNIQUE perks directly relating to the film. I'll let you browse through the "YOUR GIFTS" section below, it's exciting!
As said in the video presentation; I am a go-getter who has done A LOT already!
This project WILL go big, it will IMPACT so many children around the world and YOU will be part of it. Let's not even talk about the movies that will come after this one :-)
These are low, I am EXCITED to say!
The community supporting me is RICH in resources. I just need to be able to afford them, haha. I am particularly qualified for this task as I have over 20 years of presence in the community where I have become a leader. We trust one another, I get great advise and we all have each other's back.
