Filmmakers collect donations for Claressa Shields documentary

A group of filmmakers is asking for donations to help produce their documentary on Flint boxer Claressa Shields.

Itâ??s called "T-Rex,â?? after the nickname friends gave Shields.

Filmmakers Drea Cooper, Zackary Canepari and Sue Jaye Johnson have followed and filmed Shields for the past six months as she gets ready for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. They need to raise more than $52,000 by Aug. 4 to finish producing the film and have set up a website to collect donations.
