SEAN FRANCIS FOUNDATION
The Kangaroo Project was born when producer and production manager, Julie Hartley teamed up with members of the Minnesota film and production community to form the Sean Francis Foundation, a Minnesota-based non-profit organization named after Hartley's 20-year old son who died in a motorcycle accident in 2000. One of the goals of the Sean Francis Foundation is to sponsor the Kangaroo Project and mentor aspiring film and TV production talent like Hartley's son, Sean Francis, who was an up-and-coming film and television producer before his fatal accident.
