The short spec film I put together for the Mississippi Teacher Corps, "Hollandale", is available for viewing here. It's still a work in progress, but it should give you some idea of what the larger project will eventually look like. We're forging ahead with the big production -- I've already completed the first round of interviews with five
new first-year teachers -- but we're going to need some cash to see it through. So if anybody would like to help out by sending a few dollars our way, you'll get to see your name in the credits, and I'll be your best friend forever.

You can make a donation here (just make sure you tell them what it's for.) Not only will it help us get the film made, but in the long run it'll also help the Teacher Corps do its much-needed work by helping them recruit new teachers and raise awareness about the situation in the delta and how the MTC can help.

It's the right thing to do, and a tasty way to do it.
