My name is Jacoby Graschel. I am in my second year of film classes and looking to raise money for equipment. I have a few short films under my belt but work daily with a team of people on different projects. I am currently entering a contest with my friend and doing a film based on the internet. I am unable to do solo work currently because the camera I had quit working. I need equipment to keep working toward the only thing I've ever wanted to be, a Director. I think about this dream every day and work toward it every minute. I am good at what I do and am always trying to be better. I want to go to a good school and get an apprentiship in California but I can't do that if I don't have work in my portfolio. Equipment is the only thing that is stopping me right now. My family is helping me as much as they can and we have all of our extra items up for sale in our home to aid in my dream. Everyone is backing me and I am confident that I will not fail. If you are able to donate to my equipment fund I will make sure that I remember who helped me reach my dreams.
