Gratwick Films To Launch Crowdfunding Campaign To Benefit Feature Film And Children’s Charities

Gratwick Films is launching a $100,000 crowdfunding campaign with an ambitious two-fold mission – to film Just Drive, A Tale Of A Hollywood Whistle Blower, and to raise funds to benefit national children’s charities. The company’s IndieGoGo campaign is scheduled to go live on Wednesday, July 29th.

Just Drive is the fictional story of Hollywood whistle blower, Tony DiFranco, who must choose between his life and his legacy when a clandestine power conspires to end his ride. This dramatic thriller explores the dark side of money, power and ambition. Key players involved in the film’s production include Kris Hulbert (The Perfect House), Milton Santiago (Star Trek:Axanar), and Frederik Weidmann (Hostel 3).

To reach its goal, the company has partnered with From the Heart Productions, allowing Gratwick Films to accept tax-deductible charitable donations under the umbrella of a 501(c)(3) corporation. Some of the notable perks donors can receive include VIP tickets to the film’s premiere, the option to select a tour city, producer credit, and the ability to hang out on set during principle photography. Through the filmmakers commitment to transparency, fans also have the opportunity to particpate in every aspect of the filmmaking process, including casting and production meetings.

Through a combination of compelling storytelling and social activism,  Gratwick Film is on a mission to pioneer a social filmmaking model through the development of an interactive fan base, while creating thought-provoking films that promote positive societal change.
