My name is Norvin De los Santos, 23 years old, a striving independent filmmaker from Mandaluyong City, Philippines. I'm passionate about telling stories. I recently just resigned from my office job of 4 years to pursue filmmaking and further film studies.
I'm currently making an advocacy short film that tackles the involvement of child combatants/soldiers in a war ( specifically in the ONGOING CRISIS IN MARAWI, southern part of the Philippines ). This short film project is entitled UHAW (Thirst).
I need to raise P50,000 ($975) in order to bring this film to life (prod crew fee, prod design, lights and camera requirement, post production etc.). This project of mine is non-profit and each one who contributes will have the opportunity to be a part of the production of this film. Once completed, I plan to submit this film to festivals, both local and international, as well as have it screened at different schools to raise awareness about this issue.

The shoot is roughly 60% finished. It was intended to be shot in a day but unexpected things happened so we needed to add an extra day to complete the film. I included some screen grabs and a teaser for you to have a visual idea of how it would look like.
I hope you can help me bring this story come to life in the big screen. Thank you and God bless!
