I WROTE A SHORT SCREENPLAY AND IT'S REALLY GOOD.  NOW WHAT DO I DO?
 

Thank you for taking the time to check this out!  I know we all get bombarded with go-fund-me pages and Kickstarter campaigns (Lord knows I’ve contributed to countless films and personal tragedies). But when someone has a dream to create something that is more powerful than their loathing to ask for help, BOOM! A campaign is born.

I wrote ‘Who Wants Dessert’ because I’m fascinated by how human beings manage to survive after life altering events. Some rise above it, some drown in despair and others…others create alternate realities. That’s what the heroine of ‘Who Wants Dessert’ does. Annie loses her entire family, but can’t let them go…in a very creepy and unhealthy way.  She creates a psychological house of cards that her therapist threatens to take down, but Annie isn’t about to let that happen, and the therapist discovers the depths of how deadly this alternate reality really is for anyone outside of it. A kick ass ending leaves the viewer stunned, surprised and both cheering and being shocked by Annie.

We can all connect with the fear of losing loved ones and our sanity, and hopefully people reading this campaign will want to see this twisted tale come to life.

This film will take only two days to shoot but has a small child (oh no!) as well as visual effects and complex art direction and lighting. I’m planning to make this the most artistically creative film I’ve made to date. Here’s hoping I can shock and delight you!

Anything you can do to help is enormously appreciated!  We’re in need of a lovely home to shoot in, a small child we can traumatize and, of course, cash donations. Thank you!
