My name is Marcel, I'm 23 years old and I've figured out what I want to do with my life. Without a single doubt in my mind, film is where it's at for me.

I've been trying to start that dream here in Florida where I live but unfortunately there aren't many jobs in the film industry here. From the people I've spoken to everyone says the same thing, California is the place to be. There are more jobs and more people doing the same thing, making projects more commonplace.

I currently work full time in order to pay off the debts I've accumulated through school and getting a car and some smaller credit card bills. Thanks to those debts it's made it difficult to save up money, I know how much money it would take for me to safely move and have living arrangements however that dream seems very far away.

With my current job I could transfer to a location in Los Angeles, get a place to live and while working find other like minded individuals to start working on all the ideas I have for the big screen and small screen. Also finding a job at a studio would be easier with me being able to walk right up to the right people and interview in person.

I have all of the numbers figured out from exactly how much gas it would cost to drive me and my things cross country, to how much money I'll be spending on lunch on day two of the trip. 

I need your help, I know I'm not a cause like breast cancer or feeding starving children but I am someone who knows what their dream is and I just want to get the opportunity to pull it all off. I know no matter how successful I get in this prospect I will always remember my background and the help I needed to get to wherever it is I'm getting. I've donated before and I know how powerful the impact can be and I will forever be thankful and willing to donate as well in the future.

Sincerely,

Hopefully this world's next JJ Abrams/Judd Apatow
