My name is Jessica Mote. Friends call me “J.Mote” . I am 29 years old and I was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL aka Duval County (DDDUUUUUUUVVAAALLLLLL lol ), but I currently reside in Atlanta, GA. I am currently a working film professional and graduate student at Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta campus.
I am currently preparing for my masters program final film project. We are encouraged to raise funds as part of the graduate film review, so I am asking for donations. No amount is too great or too small. I am ambitiously looking to raise $10 thousand dollars for production cost and fees.
I havent fully decided on what project I will be shooting just yet, but one of my current ideas in development is titled “Something 2 Smile About”. I wrote, produced, directed and edited a short film version as a tester. It lead me to consider this for my graduate review film. I shot the short film with no budget and would love to see how it could transform with some financial backing.
“Something 2 Smile About” is a drama about two young African American parents that don’t realize how them splitting up is emotionally damaging their 2 daughters. They are forced to figure out working out their differences after realizing they are ruining Christmas for their kids.
Every story I write and create comes from what I have witnessed on smaller and larger scales. We have all experienced something similar to “Something 2 Smile About”, so I wrote this story for us. The short is condensed, but I really want to tell this story full out. My vision and style for this film will remind you of movies such as “Precious” and “Fruitvale station”.
“Something 2 Smile About” is only 1 of 5 ideas I am considering. I plan to film them all, but its starts here with your financial backing.
Below is a host of other projects I have filmed with no budget so you can see that the passion and love for what I do is real. I hope you choose to be apart of my story telling.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy!

Its a very emotional short about Christmas in a broken home. I want to turn this into a feature film. Not only because it is a bomb story, but to empathize to parents how your relationship and what your kids see effects them more than you know! That’s all I’m saying for now. If you like what you see check it out on my Vimeo page. Link in bio!
DONT FORGET TO DONATE to my gofund me if you want to see more!!!!!���
