The web series follows five complete strangers from different racial and cultural backgrounds, who embark on a similar journey of self-love and acceptance.
"Complexity is a web series with powerful narratives that will have audiences engaged. I am thrilled to bring it to life," said, Melissa Guzman, director and producer of Complexity. She further added, "We welcome everyone to generously pledge to this campaign to help make this project come to fruition."
The goal for the crowdfunding campaign launched for Complexity is to raise a sum of $16,000. The campaign offers great rewards for backers on Seed and Spark fundraising platform.
