She created a world in which inanimate became real and the crack that divided her parents slowly filled up. But what happens when the world a child creates won’t let them go?

Release Me is a short film by Ryan Wood about the troubles in so many households and the effect it has on the youth in the household. Told through the child's point of view, Release Me will leave viewers of all ages thinking twice about what we just sweep under the rug and hide behind closed doors. The film is 100% complete and the sales of this CD will go to producing DVD screeners and entering the film into 15 festivals.

The below list of festivals "Release Me" have now been submitted to. The funds raised have allowed for about 9 submissions to be made.

San Jose Short Film Festival
Speechless Film Festival
Guam International Film Festival
Chicago International Social Change Film Festival
Long Beach International Film Festival | New York
Treasure Coast International Film Festival
Savannah Film Festival
Moab International Film Festival
Bel Air Film Festival
Indie Spirit Film Festival
Poppy Jasper Film Festival
Conscious Media Film Festival
Lone Star Film Festival
Carmel Art & Film Festival

The new goal is to get submitted to about 30 festivals now. Ryan and I want to thank everyone who have supported the effort. There are still many more to go and we could really use your help.
