Paper Crane premieres on YouTube today!! Tune in at 12PM ET/11AM CT, to live chat with us, or if you miss the premiere, stream the film anytime via YouTube or here on our website!
*The film can be triggering for survivors of sexual assault, so if you need a gentleness break during the film, we encourage you to take one. We also invite you to visit the new Resources for Trauma Survivors section of our website for some helpful information and support.
To DOWNLOAD a copy of the film, visit our Vimeo. You'll see a "Download" button on the right side, under the video. It will be available to download for one entire year from today.
We look forward to hearing what you think here on Kickstarter, in the YouTube comments, on our IMDB, or via email!
We hope that you enjoy the film, and that it sparks some important conversations about rape and sexual assault in your families or communities. It feels perfect to release this film on the day of the Winter Solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) - as a friend put it, "The darkest day can lead to the emergence of more light." Thanks for watching :)
with love from the Paper Crane Team!

That brings me to my final announcement here today. I have decided to create a Resources for Trauma Survivors section here on our website that will include videos of me discussing my favorite resources and my own trauma healing journey, downloadable PDFs with more information, and hotline info for those in crisis. I will ALSO be releasing the film, Paper Crane publicly online for the first time - here on the website, as well as on our Vimeo and Youtube channels. I welcome comments and thoughts on the film on both channels as well as on the Paper Crane IMDB profile - I made this film to open up a more honest dialogue about rape and sexual assault, and I hope that inspires all of you to do the same.
Stay tuned for more updates soon.
With love and gratitude,
Thanks for checking out the Paper Crane blog, where we'll post photos and updates as we finish the film, as well as things we find important about rape/sexual violence in the media, women in film, and resources for survivors. We started this blog in February 2016, so if you'd like to see what we've been up to and what we've been posting even further back, visit us on Facebook!
