WHY DO YOU WANT TO MAKE ‘ADULT’?
This is a story pulled from the experiences of myself and my closest friends. It explores the relationship between love, intimacy, and porn, between connection and a false sense of closeness. The aim is to present something authentic and honest about how loneliness and miss communication can lead to further isolation in your early twenties. It is about that time in life when you are grown up, but don’t yet know how to act as an ‘adult.’ Maintaining a friendship that doesn’t cross the line can be the most complicated friendship of all.
Note. This is an R 18+ film with high impact adult themes
WHY DO YOU NEED MY HELP?
The film was shot earlier in November 2018, with a wonderfully talented cast and crew. I put $7,000 of my own money into the making of the film, through maxing out a credit card and dipping into my savings, making it a completely self funded project thus far. Unfortunately though, being the independent short that it is, I am out of money and need your help to get the film across the line during post-production.
All the money donated will be put towards the following:
– A professional sound design and mix in immersive 5.1 surround sound
– A professional colour grade to make Amy Dellars’ beautiful work look its absolute best.
– Film festival entry costs (MIFF, SIIF, St Kilda, etc)
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN THE FILM IS FINISHED?
We can’t wait to share the film with ALL of you as soon as it is completed.
Independent films start their life on the festival circuit at the mercy of selectors. Sydney International Film Festival and Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF) are its first calls. From there we will take it worldwide.
