TYLER, Texas, Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The talented team of women behind the U.S. based start-up JK Entertainment Group Inc., has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. This campaign has a funding goal of $50,000, which needs to be raised in order to bring the company's first project "Christmas at Jim's Place" to audiences everywhere.
"Christmas at Jim's Place", is currently a published book with a very powerful, inspirational message; but fans agree that the adventure is too big for just a book. With this in mind, the team decided to transform it into a screenplay, and take it to the big screen. The story focuses on hope, love and unity in the face of adversity and tragedy, which perfectly embodies the inspirational message that today's world in crisis needs.
"Christmas at Jim's Place" was written by author JM Ashwell, who wanted to make her father's dream of being a children's book author a reality. He was tragically killed shortly after immigrating to America, followed by the tragedy of 9/11. Ashwell states that, "Christmas at Jim's Place was born due to the need to make sense of what happened, respect the loss and yet search for the bright shiny stars that get us through the worst days of our lives." She knew at that time that she had an option, she could let pain and tragedy break her, or she could rise from the ashes and soar. The author decided it was time to create a legacy of hope, and turn two disasters into something that would make a positive and lasting difference in the world. The book was written to bring "hope, joy and new traditions to a world yearning for love and a sense of community with a commonality that unites us."
The team at JK Entertainment Group has been working very diligently on all of the essential groundwork for the "Christmas at Jim's Place" film project. They have brought some amazing talent on board, including the Images in Motion Inc. studio, and award-winning illustrator & animator Kamela B. Portuges. The team is now ready to begin the film-making process, which is why they have launched their Indiegogo campaign, and hired a team of crowdfunding specialists to help them spread the word. As an added bonus with this campaign, the team is offering several perks.
These perks, which serve as funding incentives, range in value from various merchandise items, up to the benefactor level "A Night to Remember" perk that gives a supporter several valuable gifts along with "Christmas at Jim's Place" merchandise items and 4 tickets to the film premier. Full details can be found on the Indiegogo campaign page.
