I am Jess Lambert and I am the writer, director
and producer of “For Fat Girls Everywhere.” I grew up in love with film
(mostly Harry Potter) and so desperately wished that I could be behind
the scenes. I originally thought the only way I’d ever be able to do it,
would be through acting. In high school I realized I could do other
things. That’s when directing became my passion. I directed a play and
made videos for school projects. Since, I’ve been attending Columbia
College Chicago as a film major.
I’ve been attending Columbia for three years now, this is my last semester and I want to make it count!
I’m raising money for my Directing III film, “For Fat Girls Everywhere.” It’s about Charlie Lennox, a plus sized girl who must learn to love herself in order to accept love. This is the first official film I’m getting to make. I want to move people with my message, you need to love yourself first!
I need $5,000.
Films cost money. I need food, transportation, locations,
wardrobe, make up, set decorations, equipment, sound recordists and more
food! In order to make the quality film I want, I need $5,000, a number
I’m certain we can achieve!
I HAVE PERKS FOR YOU!
Anyone who donates gets a personal “thank you” from me!
$500 gets you a video! Just for you, from me! Whatever inspires me about you!
$1,000 gets you an individual “Thank You” credit in my film!
When I’ve reached my goal the money will mostly go to food and art.
The rest will go to transportation, equipment, make up and post
Fat Girls Everywhere
The title of my film is the reason I’m doing it. For fat girls
everywhere. Fat isn’t a mean term. It’s just a word. Words can hurt but
only if you let them. The message that people must accept themselves is
growing strong and I want to push it. Love who you are, no matter your
size or looks.
I know I can accomplish this film successfully. I’m a straight A
student with a 3.98 GPA, and have had many mentors to help me along the
Most of all, I am a fat girl. I’m making this film not only for them
but for me. This film is a piece of me that I want to share with people
and I hope they like it and want to see it.
Please share this campaign, because Charlie and I want everyone to know that it’s okay to love yourself.
