We are happy to announce that Media Alliance of San Francisco, CA is

previously…so, even if you can’t offer a direct contribution, any
referrals to grants or foundational support is appreciated!
For our friends around the world who aren’t covered by the US tax

offer: we’d be happy to offer you a visible credit for any

active development to shoot in Cambodia and Thailand. Camerado’s third

innovative feature film is the first-ever dramatic feature about the
little-known Cambodian aspects of the US-VN conflict.
"Freedom Deal" also welcomes Kent State Alumnus & legendary DEVO
co-founder Bob Lewis and Cambodian rock n’ roll-scholar Matt Caron
onboard as advisors.
Our immediate needs include: financial support for research and
development of the first draft of the screenplay, to be workshopped on
