One film or One Institute?

Over the course of my time in Haiti, I have learned first-hand that an average budget to produce a top-rate movie in Haiti is approximately $250,000 (USD). These are not just hearsay figures, nor am I pulling them out of thin air. This is data that I have gathered straight from the lion's mouth... from those who make such films.


For the same money that is being spent to make a film that is desperately lacking on so many levels, we can launch an entire educational program that will significantly benefit all films to come.

Does anyone know who is funding these films? If so, can you convince them to fund a school instead... just this one time?
