Hey, 

You may or may not be aware but recently I've been part of a crowdfunding campaign for an upcoming short film called Ecstasy, which will tell a story about living with Parkinson’s disease in a positive and upbeat light.

Ecstasy is a comedy about a disabled father and his son's quest to buy drugs so the Dad can dance with his wife at her birthday party. What could possibly go wrong? And it's based upon the real life revelation that ecstasy can temporarily cure people living with Parkinson’s

The writer and director Grant is making this movie as his father, Bob has had Parkinson's disease for over 20 years and he has put a whole crowdfunding campaign together to raise money for the budget, AND a percentage of that will go to charity. https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy

Now for the amazing bit... We've just found out that all the money that will be donated will get doubled as a result of the BIG GIVE campaign but TIME IS RUNNING OUT. He's raised over £9.5k so far with £635 of that for charity, and that will get doubled to £1270. But we're trying to raise as much as possible and we have 3 DAYS LEFT.

The whole project is amazing, he’s got some very talented people on board; actors from the ITV show Benidorm and the music supervisors of Kevin and Perry go large! According to Grant the film will make you laugh, cry and rave in your seat! So if you want to see an amazing film next year and support Parkinson's disease research all at once then you can here: https://greenlit.fund/project/ecstasy
