Good news for Loving Annabelle fans: Confidential, by Katherine Brooks

There are good news for all the fans of Loving Annabelle!... Its director, Katherine Brooks, is making another film that will bring that same true love spirit to the big screen.
The new project is titled "Confidential", a love story between a female psychiatrist and her female patient destined to be together. This project is very special because, in some way, Simone and Annabelle live in these two women.
Katherine Brooks is already raising funds to make this movie with the help of family, friends and fans, and all the people who believe that art can change the world.
If you haven't seen Loving Annabelle yet, I recommend you do it, and then you go to support the making of Confidential.
Independent movies are much over that glamorous superficial Hollywood world because they search mainly for imagination and the passion of the creative process, they are like wonderful pieces of art. When an artist focuses on the creative process, the production of a film gets beyond any manufactured movie where money and popularity plays an important role. Truly independent films are like a handcrafted piece of art which the artisan makes with much love and dedication, caring for any little detail. It's passion and imagination what creates the artist.
"Since I made Loving Annabelle, I have wanted to make another movie about a connection between two women" -Katherine Brooks

And the Face 2 Face Adventure goes on!

Katherine Brooks is currently filming the documentary called Face 2 Face. This summer is touring the United States to meet 50 strangers who were in his list of nearly 5,000 Facebook friends. She has already met 25 of the 50, and the journey goes on towards the West!

How did the Face2Face project start? One night, in April 2011, she had an idea. After having had a hard time post-surgery, she went emotionally deep down, and despite having lots of Facebook friends, she felt very lonely and disconnected, and she really needed to hug and meet people face to face (Face 2 Face). That night, she wrote on his Facebook wall: "The first 50 people who say yes I am coming to your city to spend the day with you and film it as a documentary". Instantly she began to receive lots of replies from people who said yes. Next morning, the Kickstarter campaign began to get all the funding needed to carry out the project. Their facebook friends and twitter followers immediately started to donate in a generous way. The challenge was to achieve a minimum of $ 50,000 before May 5, which many viewed as impossible. In the first hours, more than 1000 $ were already donated. The Kickstarter project would not have been successful without the commitment and dedication Kat put on, the courage she transmited, and the faith and hope she had all the time; and all thanks to the people who were supporting it with donations, tweets, retweets, facebook, art related to Face2Face... In fact, not only she managed to get to $ 50,000, but more than $ 80,000 were donated.

On June 5, she began his adventure by car that will run until early September. And as there are so many fans who want the project to become international that it is possible she continues the adventure in other countries.

Since the project Face2Face Movie began, I've had the opportunity to meet an incredible and wonderful human being who gives off love, peace, joy and hope to everyone who stops for a moment to deepen in her soul and see beyond prejudices. She's a person with a great humanity, those which are scarce in our so selfish society, who leaves her trace in the hearts of all who know her.

"If u want to achieve your dreams help someone else achieve theirs... I feel so blessed to have discovered Face 2 Face which has connected me to such beautiful souls. I can't tell you enough how your love and support has lifted me from the ground and I've been flying ever since. I'm eternally grateful to my F2F family" - Katherine Brooks
