Donated by: A Friend of Safe Port Initiative

Have you ever watched a movie that stirred your soul in such a way that you found yourself fantasizing about what it would be like to be the lead character? Well, this is your chance to live out that fantasy with a 6 day adventure to the filming location of your favorite movie to re-shoot a scene with you as the star!

You’ll begin by selecting one of your favorite films of all time – a 50’s classic, a contemporary love story, a quirky comedy, a suspenseful murder mystery, a heart-pounding action flick, you name it!

Then, you and a guest will enjoy a complimentary roundtrip flight to the location where the movie takes place. If you love Under the Tuscan Sun, Safe Port Initiative will fly you to Tuscany! If you can’t get enough La La Land, they will whisk you to Los Angeles!

After you reach your destination, you and your guest will enjoy five nights of complimentary lodging.

During that time, you’ll also be rehearsing lines for your debut appearance as the star of your favorite movie. While you are on location, a film crew will stage and shoot a scene from your movie with YOU playing the lead role and your guest playing a supporting role!

The crew will then produce a professional quality short film of your performance that will be yours to treasure forever.

You won’t be the only one to enjoy your fifteen minutes of fame, because when you return home, you and up to 25 of your closest friends and family members will gather at a local theater for a very special event: a private screening of YOUR short film!

This once-in-a-lifetime event will include the opportunity to personally introduce your short film to the crowd.

Ready for the most memorable adventure of your life? Lights … camera … bid!
