Ultimately the Dawsons want to provide an online film academy and start a children's film festival that would feature films created by children.
To accomplish their goals, the Dawsons are looking for financial help.
They've been advised they will need about $10,000 per film for their costs: equipment, sets, props, costumes, professional direction, filming and editing. Eliza Dawson estimates they can produce all six for $30,000.
The films are the core of their ambitious plans.
If they don't raise the seed money, they'll still pursue their vision. It will just take longer to launch, she said. "If we don't get the $30,000, it won't stop us," Dawson said.
"I think they have something really special. I think corporate sponsors ought to step up and help out," Russell said.
