    The Jump Film: Shooting March 2013 An artistic response to the events of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the Colorado shootings, the Christopher Dorner shootings and all the tragic events that surround around people with unmet mental health needs. On the other hand, this is a voice for all people that just need to talk but won't because of the stigma or lack of access. Location pics WWW.THEJUMPFILM.COM Thanks for checking out our project! We're humbled by the responses that we've received in creating this very important project. JUMP is a short film. JUMP is a movement. What happens in the Jump story? Jump is the story of Ed, a normal guy struggling with average problems. When Ed decides he can’t live with himself any longer, he goes to jump off a bridge. But in the act, he realizes he is not one man - he is two. He is the man that wants to die and the man that wants to kill him. His thoughts appear in the form of a man named THOUGHT. These two men have a conversation on the bridge battling out his fate. An allegory for our common human experience. This film takes place in the moment before a man jumps off a bridge. But the man, the bridge, the circumstances and even the suicidal thoughts are just an allegory for our common human experience with hardship, depression and the need to talk to somebody about our deepest thoughts. The moment before a person jumps is an extremely intense and intimate moment. It's when your thoughts are louder than your reality. You come face-to-face with your existence, your fears, your life, your sorrows and what it would really cost to let them all go. It is also a spiritual moment, as you look face to face with God and wrestle with your existence. Why is this film important? Mental health services are lurking in the shadows of our culture, reserved for people who are crazy or disturbed. This film shows a normal guy that's in need of mental health services. He's not crazy, he just needs to talk. The same way most of us do. It's important to show this in order to strip away the stigma of mental health services and the taboo in our communities. Why make a film about this? The case for the world’s increasing need of mental health is one that needs to be made from inside the culture first. For years, health professionals have used medical statistics and PSA’s to communicate the need for mental health service, but these are attempts that circumvent the culture instead of using it. This film attempts to remove the negative stigma around seeking mental health services by telling a story about a normal person, with normal problems that needs normal help in the most extreme circumstances. This film is for anyone that has looked suicide in the face and lived to tell the story. Everyone has considered suicide at some point in their lives. It's just part of the human experience. For every person that commits suicide, 20 people have attempted it. And 3000 people commit suicide every day. Why is this film any different? First, this is not an after school special or government PSA; it is written to inspire using the voice of the creative community and hold up to academy award winning work. Second, this film is not just a film, it is the starting piece of a movement to advocate for more access to mental health services. Who's making this film? We are the Creative School of Thought, a team of creatives who believe the most powerful tool that God gave us is our creativity, and we intend on using it to do our part in devouring the chaos of the world. Zion Shabazz, Director & Executive Producer "I've worked in advertising for many years, working on some of the world's largest global brands, but now I want to use that same creativity and level of quality to tell stories that change lives and transform people. This story about Ed is not me, but he is a lot like me." See more of Shabazz's work here.

We need to raise at least $10,000 for the first part of our project - to get the camera's rolling. Many very talented crew members are donating thousands of dollars with their time as most people are working for free or for significantly less than their working rates. The money we need to raise will fund production costs such as: Equipment Rentals (lights, cameras, etc.) Location Fees & Permits Transportation (van rentals, gas, etc.) Food for Cast & Crew Props, Costumes & Art Direction We need $10k to shoot the film, but anything over that will go to post-production costs, i.e. editing, coloring, sound, special effects, festival fees, distribution and screening costs.
