All of us who comprise the team that has made SAUDADE come to life want to see it continue beyond just the pilot and we need your help to do it! No amount is too small. With your contributions, we will be able to continue to bring you episodes of this incredible and moving series and give our cast and crew an opportunity to continue working on a project they love and truly believe in. 

Creating Saudade took a tremendous leap of faith and is certainly a labor of love. The Saudade Family would love nothing more than to continue this ride together, creating more episodes and see these character's stories come to fruition on the screen to share with the world. 

Our series creators and some of our cast share their feelings on the series and reasons why YOU should help continue this dream!
