BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- "Don't Panic," a new movie by a Sarah Lawrence student, is in the process of both raising funds and looking for college students who want to participate.

Filming for this production team's first feature film begins directly after the semester ends (May) and goes into the remainder of the summer (August).

With the donations collected via GoFundMe , the production team will acquire equipment for filming and props for the shoot. All funds raised will be applied directly to the cost of producing the best quality film, writes Filmmaker and current Bronxville resident Bobby Reif on his Facebook page.

"Don't Panic" is an existential comedy about a group of teenagers in their final days in high school. Filming will take place in Wilton, Conn. where Reif grew up.

He said he came up with the idea for the story while waiting to hear back from colleges in late 2015. "I had spent my entire life in Wilton and was about to enter a larger world, so writing the screenplay was my way of dealing with my unexpected future," explained Reif.

"When it came to location scouting I only found it fitting to return home to capture those same feelings."
