Here’s a note from Jessica Mockett, Director:
While funding this project has been a challenge, we press forward because we know that the film will be significant in changing how Christians view the issues. I ask for your help once again so that this movie can be available to countless viewers: that hearts will be touched, that Christians will see more clearly how to recover from the scars of pornography, that it will draw them closer to God.
Here are a few quick updates on the progress of the project:
1) We have brought in a new producing partner, Nathan Lee, a multi Emmy award-winning producer/director who understands intimately the issues our film addresses.
2) For 18 months we pursued the project under the title Shamed. After much thought, we gave the film a new title that speaks more clearly to hope and healing. The film will now be known as The Heart of the Matter – finding light in the darkness of pornography addiction.
3) We have a grant offer of $15K that will expire in early October if we cannot find the matching funds.
In order to receive our grant in time, we have gone back online to try to raise the needed $15K there.
Our latest Kickstarter fundraiser is shorter than anything we’ve done before: Only 18 days!
