Sisters Unearthly is a fantasy web series in a visually stunning, grotesque, and humorous world without man or machine. Deranged fairy tales tell of the bizarre and spectacular female creatures who live there. Their tiniest actions can spring forth new life – perhaps delivering sublime love or gruesome death.
This series is for those who seek out fantastical content by women and about women. Fantasy and genre film is a particularly male dominated cultural space, but there are countless female fans all over the earth.
We have nearly a decade’s experience creating film for this under-served audience. We have achieved this at film festivals and as part of feature anthologies, but now is the time to grow our own audience online.
The funds will be used to develop scripts for 5 x 5 minute episodes of the web series and produce 2 of the episodes. We are asking for $2500 from donors which will help us to complete these films by the end of 2018. We will use money raised through this platform to run workshops and writing days for the participating writers. The production funds will be used for gear hire, art department, and catering for volunteers.
This will give us the content required (scripts and visual proof of concept) to apply for further funds from the Screen Australia Online Media Fund. We will then complete production of the remaining three episodes.
Please help us dive deeper into the peculiar feminine, because no one else will make it quite so fun to watch.
