Marrero, LA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/21/2014 -- When events like the Oklahoma bombing of 1995, the 9/11 terrorists acts and the Boston Marathon bombing takes place; they leave behind and impact victims, their families and responders who stand ready to aid and assist. But there is also the person or persons behind these acts. No one could have predicted that one day such people would do something so grievous that it would stagger minds, break hearts and shatter lives. Award-winning film maker King Jeff is undertaking a feature film project that will tell the victim stories of a fictionalized tragedy: the series of fatal bombings at A Walk For America Rally in New Orleans. One year after the tragedy, eight bombing victims of various ethnicities meet and allow their raw feelings to surface as they engage in dialogue about their traumatic life-altering brushes with death. King Jeff decided on a fictionalized event so that victims of real life events would not have to relive their traumatic moments.
Jeff has numerous acting, directing and producing projects to his credit. One of his noteworthy projects is critically acclaimed “Five Miles Straight Ahead,” in which he starred, as well as wrote, directed and co-produced. He also has documentary involvement with a project for which he was an executive-co producer, where various music celebrities were involved.
Jeff has been recognized by the mayor of New Orleans for his work teaching film making to at-promise inner city children. He was also the first film maker to be inducted into the Louisiana Artist Roster. The film maker(omit documentarian) owns JeTi FILMS, LLC, and has about 20 years of experience producing feature films.
Through his project titled, “Victims” he intends to utilize a style similar to Rod Sterling's Studio One CBS drama films. The “Victims” project will serve to give public voice to the grief and trauma of the victims.
Perks for contributors to the active campaign range from “Victims” trading cards, posters and t-shirts to screening, acting and associate producer credits and set visitation.
The success of this campaign will help enable a high-quality production of this educational and entertaining film to be produced.
In support of its Crowdfunding campaign, King Jeff is committed to:
-Securing talent for the film
-Going to production with the finished film
-Making the film available at film festivals and in other markets
-Producing DVDs of the film
-Providing all promised perks to reward supporters of the campaign
