Project Description

  • A short film that explores polyamory as a relationship choice in a realistic yet humorous way
  • It is a queer film written by a queer woman

  • It will be directed by a woman - Jane Clark
  • We have a female director of photography (cinematographer) - Elesha (E.R.) Barnette

  •  If reading the script would influence you to contribute, I am happy to send it on an individual basis! 
  • Thank you so much!!!!!!!

    • $600 - sound crew and equipment
    • $1160 - payments to SAG actors including P&H

  • Plot summary: An awkward dinner party for Jess (type A, alpha) and Phi (free spirit), who are in a long-term lesbian polyamorous relationship, when Jeremy and Alexis are the only ones who show up. It's not why they threw the party, but Phi wants to kiss Alexis, and Jess wants to do Jeremy - is it on the table? Hilarious and poignant, all while sneaking in a little feminist theory of polyamory.
