Indiegogo campaign for New Hampshire-based production, "Ten Seconds"

New Hampshire-based Left Bank Films has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for their upcoming short film "Ten Seconds." The campaign has a goal of $97K.

Here is a statement from the filmmakers:

"What was it like in the buildings attacked on 9/11, trapped above flames with no hope of rescue? How did people spend their last minutes on earth? Help us tell this story of extraordinary compassion and the indomitable human spirit. We've worked with everyone from Uma Thurman to John Goodman. Now we want to work with you to bring this story to life and honor the memories of the everyday heroes that faced tragedy, love, and loss head-on in 9/11."
