FilAm Short Film CROSS Seeks Funding


Written & Directed by Gerry Maravilla
Produced by BrightSparks Entertainment & M.A.D. Elephant INC
Starring Jason S. Mordeno
Logline: A young Filipino backyard boxer enters a Mexican fight ring in the San Fernando Valley to pay for his mother’s medical bills.

CROSS is a short film that will act as a proof of concept to acquire financing for the feature length version. It will also be submitted to festivals across the country before it’s distributed online. 

It hopes to break new ground by crafting a pulp genre work that stars Non-White actors. 

We are fundraising $15,000 via the crowdfunding website Seed&Spark to create a professional and high-quality short film. 
You can track our pre-production process on social media via the following links:
CROSS has received endorsements from Filipino-American boxer and Olympic athlete, Brian Viloria, as well as KIISS-FM’s Manny on the Streetz and Asian actress Bai Ling.
The project has currently raised over $6500.
A talented team of film industry professionals is ready to make this project if we can achieve our fundraising goal. We must raise at least $12,000 by 11:30am PST on August 17th or we lose everything.
Please help make this dream a reality and let the entertainment industry know that you want to see more projects that are created by and star people of color. 
Representation Matters!
