|From an interview with Patti
Obrow White, director of "If
"Our responsibility and
our commitment to make this film
overshadowed any of our economic
deficits. We just kept believing
that something good would happen...and
then one day, it did.
"An angel (an anonymous Hollywood
celebrity) flapped her wings and
swept away the first chunk of debt
we had accrued. We were back on
track and at this point, we felt
the fate of it and our desire to
complete this film became unstoppable.
We've had a few
more 'angels' along the way, including
a private investor from Denver and
a corporate sponsorship partner in
AT&T stuck their neck out with a film this raw and edgy,
because they believed it was time to stand up for something. Their
support was invaluable to the production of the film.
Pfizer, Inc is supporting educational outreach at special
individual screenings of the film through the use of unrestricted
educational grants from Pfizer, Inc. Please address any letters
of support for Pfizer's role in bringing this film to public awareness
|As a feature documentary, "If
I Could" took over a year and
half to shoot, on many locations
and with high production values,
followed by a lengthy editing process.
I Could" remains under-financed,
and we continue to seek other sponsors
or individuals who want to help
us with finishing funds.
