Have you heard of the new short film, Crescendo?

Winner of 16 International film awards, including the Best Short Film at the Hollywood Film Festival, Crescendo was produced by Eduardo Verástegui, Jason Jones, Leo Severino, and Alejandro Monteverde – the team that brought us Bella.

Set in the 18th-century Holy Roman Empire, Crescendo tells part of the true life story of a famous historical figure.

I got to screen this 12-minute film last week and it was great – four stars. Here’s the trailer…

Crescendo features faces you may know, like former Miss USA and Bella star Ali Landry, and faces Americans may not know but Internationals will, including Swiss pop star and German Idol judge Patrick Nuo.

MovieToMovement, which owns the film license, is hoping to help 100 pregnancy care centers raise a total of $1 million in one night: February 28.

For $2,500 MTM will rent a theater of a PRC’s choice for the screening and provide the movie to the theater as well as a video introduction by Eduardo and Jason.

The biggest news is a VVIP (very, very important person), to be announced later this week, has videotaped the appeal for donations for PRCs. (I say “VVIP,” knowing who it is – am not kidding!)



So all PRCs have to do is fill the theater. Everything else is done for them. The introduction, film, and donations appeal will take about an hour. PRC leaders can use additional time for client testimonies, to give info about their PRC, etc.

Already 86 PRCs have signed up to host a screening. Doing this not only helps PRCs raise money but also helps Crescendo reach a wider audience with an important message. Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop “live birth abortions” after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
