    I am honored to announce that the Independent Television Service (ITVS) has awarded research and development (R&D) funds to my production company, God Bless the Child Productions, LLC (GBC) for my film, Hazing: How Badly Do You Want In? I'm grateful to ITVS for their support and belief in this project, and plan to put these funds to great use. Thus far, GBC has received development funds and institutional support from Firelight Media's Next Step Fund, the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation, and now, ITVS. I am also extremely grateful for the initial financial support from people like you, who contributed to my Indiegogo campaign. While I am fortunate to have received support, I still have a long way to go before reaching my fundraising goal. To this end, I am looking for a development specialist (or consultant). I am seeking someone who is savvy, intellectually sharp, a big picture person, and an out-of-the-box thinker who has successfully raised money for a film. Experience working with a film production company and knowledge of the documentary film production world is a very strong plus. If you (or someone you know) meet these qualifications and are interested in the position, please send a resumé to info@bhurt.com.
