Look Up
Look Up A dramatic short film that looks at the realities of homelessness from the point of view of a 17 year old boy.

Look Up is about corruption, prejudice and life on the streets, as seen by a 17 year old boy, who is desperate to escape it. The story follows John, a homeless prostitute, who botches the robbery of a convenience store, but he finds redemption where he least expects it?with the store owner.

Who we are:
We are a talented group of young filmmakers in our final year of study at The Art Institute of Atlanta. Our goal is to raise funds in order to produce a short film entitled, ?Look Up?. We hail from various countries; from the U.S. and several Caribbean islands. What we have come to know is that poverty and homelessness are conditions of every country in the world; whether rich or poor.

In a nutshell...
Look Up is about corruption, prejudice and life on the streets, as seen by a 17 year old boy, who is desperate to escape it. The story follows John, a homeless prostitute, who botches the robbery of a convenience store, but he finds redemption where he least expects it?with the store owner.

?Look Up? is essentially a meditation on human invisibility, the destruction or nurturing of the spirit and the power of choice. It was written as an invitation to view the ?invisibles? among us from a different perspective and to encourage dialogue concerning homelessness and what the human response should be.

So why do we need your support?
We have an excellent script, a seasoned crew, a highly talented core of actors and the determination to produce a film that inspires change. All that we lack is the proper funding to bring this project to fruition. We must have funds in order to procure small equipment rentals, location permits, props & wardrobe, etc. We all feel so strongly about the potential of this film, that we've decided to protect its integrity at all costs--even if that means putting it off until we have everything that we need!

What happens after the film is done?
After our post production team has finished editing the film, we will run the gamut of the national film festival circuit. It?s our goal for our film to be chosen by a national film distribution company and made available to an even wider audience.
