short comes in the form of another crowdfunding campaign. On the 4th of December 4, 2017, a wildfire dubbed The Thomas Fire devastated Ventura and Santa Barbara counties in Southern California.
The tragedy would pose a crushing blow to the production for Roman-à-clef. Principal photography for the film got canceled as a result of the unforeseen tragedy. The production team have now established a campaign via gofundme.

Definately not looking to double-dip here, so anyone that graciously supported our IndieGoGo campaign last fall need not apply. We’re looking for new supporters and hope that this platform is another opportunity to continue to spread the word about the film.
At the time of this published article one hundred fifty dollars ($150) has gone toward the goal of two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500). Six contributors have donated so far and there is still time to provide financial assistance. Fourteen days remain before the campaign comes to a close.
A rewards tier offers different incentives based on donation amount such as “shout outs” on social media platforms to receiving on-screen credits.
