From Illinois to Hollywood – Elliot London

Filmmaker Elliot London

is one to watch in Hollywood.

The charismatic director/producer calls himself a dreamer, and now
he’s offering you the opportunity to share his dream of making a movie
that’s very close to his heart.

The 30-year-old London, born in Australia, but raised in America,
says growing up gay was not always easy, especially in Rockford,

With that in mind, his latest short film, The Wedding Dance, tells the story of marriage equality — but he promises, with a twist.

London plans to start shooting in Los Angeles in a few weeks, but
like so many small independent filmmakers, he needs additional funding
to complete the project, so he’s taken the unusual and highly creative
step of using social media to entice investors who can actually receive a
credit on the film. chatted with London about his journey from America’s Heartland to Hollywood — and what it was like to intern for Jerry Springer along the way!

Like most small independent films these days, the filmmaker must raise their own  funds. London is currently trying to raise $5,000 – and he already has  $4,400!  He just needs  $600  within the next 16 days, to get things rolling!   Stop by his page  and find out more, how you can help!

(Did you see his  short  called   306?  Set in Chicago, IL, this 11 minute short film
shows a day in the life of a young man. Without a single word spoken,
‘306’ is full of emotion and shows us exactly how Eric (played by Brian
, from Wisconsin) feels at all times. Beautifully shot and great acting.
