Family Treez Productions is proud to announce that they are headed into pre-production on their feature film, Trials and Tribulations, an inside look and raw depiction of our state and national foster care systems. The film is drawn from the real-life experience of its writer, Dameon “D.” Pichetrungsi. Trials and Tribulations will create international awareness of the crisis that claimed 463,773 children (2011) in America, and over 63,000 in California alone. “D” and director, Alan Swyer, are confident that the message of hope and redemption expressed in the film will serve as a motivational tool for current and former foster youth. Every “cause” needs a voice, and Trials and Tribulations will be an independently funded film, so we need your support to create that voice for every child who has ever had the “cause” to feel unwanted.
Whether you appreciate or criticize a celebrity when they adopt a child abroad, now is your chance to be a part of the grassroots movement to rectify our current foster care system. With support from government officials such as Los Angeles County Supervisor, Michael Antonovich, and local businesses such as Journey House, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides support and resources to former foster youth, Family Treez Productions is prepared to approach accredited investors to finance Trials and Tribulations.
Family Treez Productions extends an invitation to friends and family to take part in the development stages of our film and join us for a fun-filled evening to help raise money. Financial support at this stage will go to the “seed-money” necessary to draw the attention of accredited investors. Your support will benefit the cause tremendously.
