This script details what it was like to serve in the closet. The script is full of intrigue, love, hate and honesty. Help bring this script to the screen. Support My Secret Army written by LGBT disabled Army veteran artist."

Siren LaCoast Short Film/ Music Video Fund

Siren LaCoast, Siren LaCoast's Kickstarter

"Currently I'm working on a Music video/ Short Film featuring 3 new track off my upcoming album, and trying to work with a great music video producer and director! Only problem is that I currently can't afford the rate needed for this project!

The biggest problem I've faced was my lack of funding for equipment and collaboration. My last album SCOFF was completely produced and edited on my iPhone 6, as well as the filming and editing of the FREAKS video. I couldn't afford the fancy music producing programs or the big bad ass cameras and lights for filming and realized I CANNOT do it alone."

Fallon Franklin CD Recording Project

Fallon Franklin Fallon Franklin's Kickstarter

"This year has been a doozy. Since I was a child, my therapy has been singing and writing music. This year, life has thrown some grenades at me. A few missed and a few hit me. Through my music, I am gathering the pieces of me and bringing to you my 6th studio record.

Few people realize the time and money that goes into making an album. The estimated cost for this album is around $6,000 and then another $1,000 to press the record. That is on a budget due to an amazing producer, Mack Damon, and the labor of love from my amazing musician friends.

Thank you for being a part of this journey with me!"

Manga Squad Collaboration

Sheldon Washington II, Manga Squad Collaboration's Kickstarter

" Now on to what comic actually is! We have decided to create a collaboration of one-shots of some of our favorite genre of comics! We have, slice of life, steampunk mahou shoujo, fantasy, and historical action. Let me tell you about them all!!

Our first one is our slice of life called Manga Squad! This one is actually really fun, because it's actually about all of us who are making the comic, making the comic if we all had some wacky anime type troupe! One of us is a magical idol club president, one of us is the ditzy princess of the school, one of us is the cute sports clube manager, and much more! The story is just your typical comedy slice of life but with a lot of crazy wacky characters interacting with each other(which is basically what we are)."
