Hollywood doesn’t make gay love stories…but we do!
We are Cinema175 – two guys from West Hollywood, California (actually we are NY transplants) who are creating movies and web series for LGBTQ audiences around the world. You may know us from our hit sketch comedy YouTube web series, ‘Steam Room Stories,’ and the award-winning films ‘Is It Just Me?’ and ‘eCupid.’
We love making fun date movies! Our next project - ‘The 10 Year Plan’ - completes our trilogy of romantic comedies. It’s inspired by Hollywood movies like ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ and ‘The Proposal’.
We get letters from people all over the world telling us how much they loved our previous films and what it meant for them to see films that portray positive stories about the LGBTQ community. Your contribution will help us reach even more people – and maybe even change a few lives along they way.
We have secured some of the funding we need to make the movie but we need your help raising $25,000 hire our sexy cast and talented crew. That’s where you come in! We’re reaching out to fans of romantic comedies, indie films and gay cinema to be a part of bring this great story to the screen. In return for your help, we’ve put together a great list of perks for every level of contribution.
Who doesn’t love a good romantic comedy? With your help, we can continue to make great films for everyone!

THE STORY OF 'THE 10 YEAR PLAN'
‘The 10 Year Plan’ is a funny, smart, romantic comedy with universal appeal. It’s the story of Myles and Brody - two friends who make a pact to be together if neither finds love in ten years time. Now it’s two month’s shy of their deadline, and both friends set off to do whatever it takes to avoid ending up as each other’s last resort.
Pre-production has started and casting is currently under way for our sexy leading men and women! We'll be filming once again at locations in Los Angeles, with many of the same talented crew from the first two films.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
WHERE THE MONEY IS GOING
Although we make Hollywood-style films, our budgets are anything but Hollywood-style! In fact, having no money doesn’t stop us. We’re inspired by our fans who tell us how much these sweet films mean to them. We want to put good mojo out there and we really believe it comes back to us. We love these movies and we hope you do to. By joining us in making them, you'll be part of something really awesome.
We are passionate enough about ‘The 10 Year Plan’ to work for free, but we have to pay our actors and crew – at least a little something. We are planning to shoot for 12 days and hope to pay everyone $100 a day, with a little left over to hire a recognizable face or two in front of the camera.
Here's a peak at the schedule:
