Donation Information

Thank you for taking an interest in The Young Invincibles! This project is near and dear to us and we hope you will consider lending your support.

The Young Invincibles is an independent feature film that looks into the experience of young adults with cancer. After spending a year doing research, we wrote the script and then spent the next six months planning for the production of the film. In the beginning, we set out simply to make a great film. To create something we could be proud of and that would establish ourselves as filmmakers. However, as we delved deeper into the topic of young adult cancer, we quickly realized that this film could be more than that. It could be a film that would help people connect, cope, and understand.

While working on this film, we learned of a longtime family friend that had struggled with cancer as a young adult, a former classmate who was diagnosed, and, even more recently, a member of the Y.I. production team who is now battling cancer and starting chemotherapy treatment. These stories, coupled with the thousands of stories of young adults struggling with cancer every day, have instilled in us a passion to make this film.

This is where we need your help. This project can only be made possible through the generous support from people like you. We hope that you will consider making a contribution to The Young Invincibles as this will go a long way towards helping us ensure we have the needed funds to produce the film. We believe deeply in this project and we hope you will, too.

Below, please find a prospectus that outlines our plan for the film. Inside, there is a summary of the film’s storyline, our strategy for how the film will be made and distributed, a list of project advisors, and a letter of support from one of the leading young adult cancer organizations. We hope this will give you an understanding of our vision for the project.
