Project Description

Once upon a time, an outgoing actor and a reserved writer met a classroom.  Ironically, they were both there to learn how to pitch their Film/TV project ideas.  Neither knew at the time that that random meeting would lead to REWARD, a new TV series that addresses loss, guilt and mental health within the framework of an innovative and interesting story. 

Our Project:

Meet Hadrian Willis - an elementary school janitor who stalks the late-night streets of New York City investigating unsolved crimes on his own.  With the REWARD money he earns, he funds his search for the truth behind his family's mysterious disappearance when he was a child. 

 

Who We Are: 

Bonnie A. Hendrickson is an award winning screenwriter who combined her love for her adopted hometown of New York City and passion for entertainment with a purpose to create REWARD - a show designed to increase awareness of the millions of unsolved missing person cases and what lack of closure does to the families left behind. 

Antino Crowley-Kamenwati is an actor, writer, model and artist.  He has appeared on NCIS: New Orleans, Blue Bloods, Gotham, Law & Order SVU and the Netflix miniseries When They See Us.  Antino also co-starred in the 2019 feature film Bite Me, which also featured Christian Colson, Annie Golden, Naomi Grossman and Naomi McDougall Jones.  Antino writes and produces projects for all media, including public service announcements for mental health and self-acceptance. 

Our Goal:

We are in pre-production for a "proof of concept" video for REWARD to show to potential financiers and production companies.  We are fundraising to cover production and marketing costs.  At present, our projected budget is $5,000.00.

Our Request:

We believe that our society has reached a point where it's crucial that the issues surrounding mental illness be brought out into the light and discussed openly.  Given that media plays such a large part of our everyday experience, REWARD is a catalyst for discussion of  depression, PTSD and self-harm. 

If you would like to be a part of REWARD, we welcome your support - monetary or word of mouth. 

More importantly, if you are struggling with depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, please discuss your feelings with someone you trust - be it a friend, family member or mental health professional.  You are not alone!
