I’m beyond excited to be working on a new personal project. Together with another talented friend, I’ve co-written a short screenplay. For the past several weeks we’ve kind of isolated ourselves from the world, writing day and night to create a compelling short drama. When we were finally done, we looked at each other with a mix of disbelief and anxiety ( in an exciting way ) to be typing “the end” on the final page. Since then lots has happened.
Fast forward, we’re going into production this September. What makes this project extra special is having an all female creative team and crew. It’s a sad reality but the industry is completely dominated by guys so we figured that as women, we need to create the opportunities we want to make something awesome together. And that’s what we’re doing.
And here’s an opportunity for you to help us girls out. We’re running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund our film. Yes, technically we’ve already reached our “goal” because we initially decided to set it very low as a way of making sure we raised at least some money ( on Kickstarter you only get the money if you reach your goal ). Now that we’re past the nervousness of getting anything at all, we can focus on actually completely, fully covering all the costs, and that’s why any amount will make a difference.
So please head over there, read about the story we’re trying to tell and give us a little nudge!
