No one likes a fake or phony.

But how do we know when someone is “for real?”

Well, according to some experts, authenticity is about being “true to one's own personality, spirit, or character.” But, in this extremely judgmental and competitive world, that’s often easier said than done; particularly when we’re expected to act within certain boundaries and conform with an array of societal expectations and norms.

That’s why I found the premise of Nicola Docherty’s new short, “AUTHENTIC,” particularly compelling. Based on a true story, the film examines deteriorating relationships, family illness, and the importance of acceptance. But ultimately the overarching message Nicola wishes to impart is, “no matter what, it’s always OK to be true to who you are.”

To help get this ambitious film made, the team has initiated a crowdfunding page where, in exchange for some relatively modest contributions, you can receive a social-media shout-out, a signed or unsigned copy of the script, a personalized “thank you” video from the cast and crew, to an acknowledgment in the film’s end-credits.
