For those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, there’s a new state of the art crowdfunding studio that wants to help produce and create meaningful and socially relevant films called Cinema Dreams.  Founded in 2012 by Don Stewart Baldwin, Gary Sanders, John Lee, Jim Goodrich, Joan Farber, Jack Miller, and Natalie Wenninger, it is their mission to assist artists with the process of bringing projects from page to screen by removing their financial restrictions.  Cinema Dreams hopes to take advantage of the advances in technology which have brought us more affordable digital cameras and data storage and cost effective editing costs.  The company wants to be known as the place where writers, directors, actors and crew can break into the arts and study their craft in order to turn their dreams into reality without relying on traditional business avenues. 

They have devised a simple formula pairing season and educated professionals with talented and energetic novices in order to produce quality projects.  The result will be a cross-supportive group being formed for each individual film.  With the success of Kickstarter in creating a viable and well respected vehicle for fundraising, Cinema Dreams will be able to incorporate the highest levels of film participation and rewards.  They plan to thoroughly involve their supporters in many aspects of their projects, which will lend the artists much needed assistance in bringing their films to completion. 

Right now the production company is involved in bringing John Lee’s world renowned true story “The Flying Boy Healing the Wounded Man” to the screen. Examining the reasons why men run from relationships the movie plans to show how the book has changed so many people’s lives.  The story relates how a college poetry professor meets the woman of his dreams, falls madly in love and will do anything for her except stop trying to manage her feelings while flying away in his heart.  When the relationship dies he decides to examine who he really is and what he needs to do in order to have the relationship he deserves.  Lee is the only author to ever be featured three times on Oprah Winfrey’s Show discussing the same book, which is still in print.  The full length feature is being adapted and directed by award winning writer Don Stewart Baldwin. 

I will have more on Cinema Dreams, the principals involved and “The Flying Boy Healing the Wounded Man” project in a future blog post.  Until then you can find out more information by visiting their website at
