Local Filmmaker Seeks Production Funding Making First Feature Films After Life of Illnesses
I am Walter Jakubowski, and have had an interesting health history, which has led to my current endeavor.
I was born with Congenital Heart Disease and at the age of 3 months old he underwent his first of six open heart surgeries. I have a bovine valve which must be replaced within the next several yearsI have had two pacemakers operations and have had back surgery to correct partial paralysis.
I began making short movies using the family 8mm camera, as a way to pass the time while recovering. I took my love a step further and went on to earn a BA in television/film production.
I am now taking things a major step further and putting two feature films into production: "Briar Lake" and "Foreseen.” I am seeking local financing for both films, with a goal of raising $550,000. Information on both films can be found at www.wjakeproductionsinc.com.
