LAPPG MEMBER ANNOUNCES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN FOR SHORT

Editor and Associate Producer Justine Gendron is reaching out to the community for support on her upcoming short film, Devil May Come…

After countless years of ruling Hell, Lucifer has grown tired of his place in the universe and wishes to return to Heaven. Believing that God will not hear him, he comes to Earth to beg the family he betrayed, God’s Angels, to speak on his behalf and let him come home.   This movie, although involving the Devil and Angels and other paranormal entities, is really a family drama. It’s a film about a man asking his Brothers to forgive the horrible, horrible things he’s done, and their inability to do so.

Please visit http://igg.me/at/devil-may-care  to learn more about this short and how you can show your support!
