Crowdfund This: Indie Film Explores Issues That haunt an African American Middle Class Family

Instead of me yapping, I’ll let the award-winning filmmaker (D. Channsin Berry), who I’m sure some of you are familiar with, do that for himself, since he does it so eloquently and humbly in the video below.

Details on the project (image above is of the starring cast, which Berry mentions in the pitch video):

What happens when the family drama starts with sibling rivalry and ends with parental loyalty?

From the critically acclaimed and award winning Director and Producer of “The Black Line” (series) “Crossing Over…The Sam Cooke Story” and “Dark Girls,” D. Channsin Berry (Urban Winter Entertainment), comes a new family drama about sibling rivalry and what happens when a parent’s love favors one child over the other.

Set in present day Los Angeles, CA “Hand Over Heart” is a striking new family Drama that will surprise and delight audiences in one fell swoop! With an opening title song written and performed by: Grammy nominated Kenny Lattimore, D.Channsin Berry and John Proulx, “Hand Over Heart” will be an emotionally powerful and moving experience.

“I have been longing to explore to the inter story of an African-American middle class family forever. A story of common issues that haunt all families secrets and dysfunction. I have handpicked my incredible cast of friends who said YES to me without questions,” says director D. Channsin Berry. 
“Hand Over Heart” is an independently produced film that explores “real slices of American life.” This project will begin filming in February 2015 and we need your support to make it happen. We need to raise $390,788 to successfully execute this endeavor at the quality audiences have come to expect from a D. Channsin Berry film.  Your contribution will help us bring this work to the screen.

For your generosity we have a number of pledge rewards to express our sincere and indebted gratitude.
