Student Short Film Fundraising

Students in the Communications Technology program at York College are working on a short film featuring the band “Born of Scars.” This film is a project for a Cinematography “Special Topics” course but the film will also be used as an official video for the band and be sent to various TV networks.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED to bring this project to completion. Until recently this project was funded mostly by the Producer, Dhruv Kumar, who is using money originally intended for an internship in Los Angeles.

Here is a note from the crew:

First and foremost we would like to thank those of you that have already donated to our fundraising campaign for our film, The Rain. We are completely humbled and overwhelmed by your support. Thank you for helping us get this far.

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to make a donation yet, we hope you will consider doing so. We have just 32 days left to meet our goal of $1,500. At this time we are short of our goal. Your donation will help us.

With Kickstarter, our project will only be funded if at least $1,500 is pledged by Thursday May 26, 5:46PM EST. If we do not meet the $1,500 mark by that time, none of the donations will be taken and we will lose the opportunity to use these funds for the vital resources we need to complete our film.

Please visit the kickstarter page at and watch the trailer. Your contribution in any amount will be gratefully appreciated.

If you would like to contact Dhruv or the crew, you can reach via Kickstarter.
