Hello! I’m Amanda, I have subscribed and I’m very excited about this giveaway. It will definitely make someone very happy so good luck everyone!

If I were to win this, I don’t know I would just be very surprised, but I would use it for independent film making. To make short films that make statements we all need to hear, to make an impact.
