It is still extremely difficult to locate funding for gay films, so it is very important for the community to support each other.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2008
An enterprising filmmaker is using the Internet to enlist the help of the gay and lesbian community to complete an independent short film. By donating to the film project, people can gain a film credit and possibly win 2 tickets to Cyndi Lauper's True Colors Tour.
Jennifer Medvin, the writer and producer of the film which has the working title of "Gaydar," announced a fundraiser for her latest LGBT independent film project this week. "Films can have a great impact on the world," Medvin, who recently produced Helping Hand with Paula Marshall, passionately stated. "It is still extremely difficult to locate funding for gay films, so it is very important for the community to support each other."
All donations are tax-deductible through Power UP and should be made before Sunday, 15, 2008 to be eligible to win the True Colors Tour tickets. Power UP is a non-profit 501(c)(3) film organization comprised of women and men, gay and straight.
The short film, which will be shot in and around Los Angeles, is about a lesbian who continually falls for straight women. She employs the services of "The Master" to teach her how to harness her gay sixth sense, otherwise known as gaydar. It is a spoof on master/student films such as Kill Bill, Karate Kid and Star Wars.
The cast includes Erin Cardillo, Gregory Zarian and Eric Martsolf, including a popular star making a cameo appearance. The remainder of the cast will be announced soon. Karen Wilkens, a three-time Emmy nominee and DGA Award winner, will direct the short.
