Filmmakers reach goal for Travis Mills documentary

Posted: Updated:
VASSAR, MI (WNEM) -

Enough money is now available to make a short film about wounded soldier Travis Mills. It will tell the inspirational story of Mills, who lost all four limbs in an improved explosive device, or IED, attack.

A nonprofit called Fotolanthropy reached a goal of raising more than $12,000 by Jan. 19. Filmmaker Katie Norris says any additional funds will go toward making the project even better.

The short film is titled Travis: A Soldier's Story. The project raised the money through Kickstarter, a crowdfunding website. Individual donors could contribute any amount starting at $1.

The film will document daily life for Mills and show him opening up about the injury.

TV5's Liz Gelardi talked with him about the project in a previous interview.

"It's the first time I've ever even brought it up where it made me possibly get dust in my eye, I think there was dust in my eye. I wasn't really crying," said Mills.

When the film is finished, Fotolanthropy hopes to enter it in film festivals.
