NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Music City is no stranger to performing arts of all types...and it's quickly becoming a place to be seen on the big screen too. A new movie in production here isn't one you would expect, but if you want a grass roots effort to grow, why not do it where others have blossomed?
Blue Falcon- A Veteran's Battle With PSD is one such movie.
The film features interviews with mid-state vets suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. Service members who describe the horrors they deal with every day and the issues they face when seeking treatment. The mission of the film is to cut through the stigma and reach out to vets and family members, letting them know it's okay to let others in.
Funding for the film is being done on a grass roots level with crowd funding through www.BlueFalconMovie.com and has raised $4,000 so far. Their goal is to raise $50,000. To top things off, an Academy Award winning actor is stepping up to lend a voice to narrate the film.
