TAKEN IN was written and directed by personal filmmaker, Chris White. It was made entirely with cash and in-kind contributions from friends and family. The story (co-written with his wife Emily), was inspired by Chris’ theatre work with students at a therapeutic boarding school. The film is dedicated to his own teenage daughter, Gibson.

15 January 2011, I launched a Kickstarter fundraiser...promising that I would "shoot over several days....allow for experimentation on set....break new ground visually….improve location sound recording....total running time for the film....between 65 and 80 minutes."
TAKEN IN is most certainly that, but it has also become a guiding star for my work and career. Moving forward now, I plan to continue making two features per year...on the same, six month schedule.
My next film, GET BETTER, launches a Kickstarter fundraiser today. And, assuming it is funded, there will be a process website like this one, 1 September 2011.
Thank you for your support in this process. I invite you along for the next one, as well.
This is such a great way to make a movie...with you, for you.
