As we continue advocacy on domestic violence awareness, we are excited to promote Shut Up Silence, an awesome film on the fall-out from abusive relationships on college campuses.
The fabulous female filmmaking trio is making waves with this project, and have launched an Indiegogo campaign to continue driving support. Over the next three months, the women have set a fundraising goal of $250,000.
“This is my story. I’ve lived this, and now I can’t hold it in any longer,” said Natasha Parker, award-winning writer/director and one of the founding partners of Noisemakers Entertainment.
The film, titled “Shut up Silence,” takes place in a university setting where the lead character finds herself in a relationship with her college sweetheart that seems impossible to walk away from. A rollercoaster of events, including ignored abuse, lead to a critical choice she must make between freedom and love.
“There are so many young women and girls who are in abusive relationships and either don’t realize it or need help confronting their circumstances,” said Parker. “This film will help them see that’s it time to get out or their life may depend on it.”
“Making a quality film takes money, and we thought Indiegogo was a great route to go,” said Adrienne Swan, fellow Noisemaker and accountant. “It’s my job to make sure the numbers are right and that we approach every project in a manner that is fiscally sound.”
Noisemaker partner LaTrice Edwards couldn’t agree more. Edwards, a celebrity makeup artist and philanthropist looks forward to the film “Shut Up Silence” becoming a reality and intends to add her creative touch. “Not only do we feel compelled to help Natasha tell her story, but we want to save lives too,” said Edwards.
Pending the success of the Indiegogo campaign, filming is set to begin in the spring of 2017.
“We are looking for donations of all sizes,” added Parker. “Every contribution gets us one step closer to shutting up the silence about domestic violence.”
