My name is Remington, I’m the associate producer for a new feature film by Out of Shot productions that’s all about schizophrenia. The plot of our film follows a teenage boy in rural Kentucky who develops a mental illness. Blocked by the stigma surrounding schizophrenia, his family and community struggle to give him the treatment he needs.
The main character is the boy’s mother, who is shocked by her son’s diagnosis and does not know what action to take. We want to make sure that the story we’re telling is as accurate as possible, and we want to better understand what a family has to go through to help their child.
This is where we need your help!
We want to interview families with children who have schizophrenia. We would love to hear your firsthand experience of your journey towards mental health, so we can give an honest depiction of the mental illness. If you’re interested, we will set up a date and time to meet with you. You will get a credit in the film, our deepest thanks, and some monetary compensation.
We are a seasoned production team and our films include Lifetime’s Network’s “A Fatal Obsession”, award winning film about down-syndrome called “Gary”, and most recently “The Lennon Report”, the trailer of which I attached below. Our upcoming film has been a labor of love that we have been working tirelessly on for the past 3 years. As of right now, we have a couple of stars signed on for the film and an award winning director. Our production team really believes that our film can be a huge advocate for the mental health community. By letting us interview you, you’ll be doing a huge service to the story we are trying to create!
We’re looking to interview people in person in the New York, Kentucky and Los Angeles areas. If you don’t live close to any of these places, we’d love to set up a skype interview with you instead.
If you’re interested, please feel free to email me with any questions at:

Thank you so much, looking forward to hearing from you!
