The objective of this project is to tell compelling stories of individuals dealing with foreclosures throughout the US, while comparing Hoovervilles from 1930's situation.
Fountain Valley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2013 -- Alexa Polar wants to document compelling true stories on individuals that are in the process of losing or have lost their home. The film will use the compare and contrast method to illustrate how the banks and ill method of their ways of selling and quick to take back sales; with the example of the Hooverville (shantytown) eras during the Great Depression. In the 1930’s after the stock market crash, the banks took thousands of homes widespread across America.
Alexa hopes to get a historian from New York City – Central Park area to discuss on camera about one of the largest Hoovervilles of the 1930’s. Alexa also hopes to include Seattle, where it was recorded as one of the largest and longest lasting Hoovervilles of the 1930’s.
Alexa would like to share stories from people now in the present. It has been found that the following states are some of the highest in percentages of foreclosures: Florida, Nevada, Ohio and California. Ideally, this project would like to concentrate on three, Florida, Nevada and California.
The great thing about this project is that Alexa already has a backer the OCC Shorts linked to the Newport Beach Film Festival. This backer is supporting Alexa and the project. He has given a head start of $1,000, plus screening this project at the OCC Shorts/Newport Beach Film Festival.
The funding for this project is mainly to cover cost of traveling. After all the title of the project is America Foreclosed, the team doesn't want to just focus on one state, but several states. The risks is that if they don't get the full funding, they may have to limit themselves within just the neighboring states.
This project will only be funded if at least $5,000 is pledged by Thursday Aug 1, 4:24pm EDT.
