LOUDER THAN LOVE: A documentary film exposing the murders of Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington and its links to their child sex trafficking investigation and the greed of some of their loved ones. The purpose of this project is to form an alliance with witnesses, loved ones, victims and supporters to shine a light on these hideous crimes. The film will portray forensic analysis with lots of circumstantial and testimonial evidence to convince people there was foul play in these deaths.
Today YouTube denied my request for monetizing my channel and at the same time banned my account from making "community posts", which means I'm not able to send written posts to my subscribers, or create polls; despite not breaking any rule in that regard. They also killed my ability to live stream... it seems they didn't like my 1st and only live stream so far. I appealed but my hopes are scarce.
It seems social media would rejoice if I just disappeared. They have effectively decimated my finances and I calculate the current financial damages in $4000+. Funds that would have kept me afloat during this pandemic. Funds that would have allowed me to finance my travel to Seattle to film some scenery and a couple of pending interviews.
I can keep producing but I can no longer support myself doing this. That's why I used Patreon, the podcast took 30 hrs of my time per week (10hrs per episode mainly because of editing) so it was like a part time I still had plenty of time left for the film and writing articles. Now after 2 months of not having any income, I'm out of guitars and amps to sell... Time to get back into the work force and most likely delay the film.
Since my Patreon was banned everything has gotten worst. When I announced I was delaying the film in order to focus on job hunting some of the people following the project suggested I opened a ''gofundme''. I was reluctant of doing this for months due to the negative connotations people give to these kind of fundraisers but figured this is how I get to stay on track to at least publish the film this year. July is still feasible but it all depends on this fundraiser and how much free time I have to edit the film.
