I have received the following message on FaceBook:

Hello Natalia,

This is Yolanda. I'm a Spanish chess lover and an independent filmmaker. I have been playing chess all my life and this game helped me a lot when I was depressed and having a really bad time in my life. I'm graduating now from a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking. I'm on a scholarship (I don't have any family support) and I want to make this film about chess so badly. To me, chess has a lot to do with life. It's not exactly the same, of course, but it can help to analyze situations better and make the right decision. At the end, what I learnt from chess is that you need to try and try. Failing is not bad at all because you always learn from that and in the next game you will be better and better. Like in life.

This is my indiegogo campaign:

The short film would be much more better. I have amazing actors, super cool locations... I want to make something different, but what I don't have is enough money to make it as it deserves. I know that having enough money, I'll make something really remarkable. I'm putting there all I have. Someone told me that maybe you could help me. I wish you could. It's so sad to ruin a personal story in which you believe, just for the money....

I'm attaching you the script, just in case you want to take a look at it. Also I'm attaching the list of awards that I already got.This is not my first film, I know that I have now enough experience to make something great. I just need some help...

Sorry for taking so much time from you.
