WE ARE NOW IN POST THANKS TO YOU!

Click here to help us finish the film

http://www.hatchfund.org/project/alterations

WHAT WE ARE DOING:

We are making one of the first INTERACTIVE MOVIES with a revolutionary software and we want you to make a little history with us!

We have partnered with the creator of a brand-new technology, which will allow YOU to mouse-over our short film, ALTERATIONS, and click on a CHARACTER in the movie, or their COSTUME, or any OBJECT (anything on the video) to go deeper into the STORY, access a whole other world of INFORMATION or just for plain FUN!

I am working with non-actors, who have contributed a lot of their own personal experiences, mixed-in with mine, some real history, facts and lots of fabrications with a dash of amnesia.

WHY WE ARE MAKING THIS PROJECT:

Prejudice kills.

All of us have been judged unfairly at some point in our lives. And all of us have judged others as well. We believe that letting you interact and explore will create a real EXPERIENCE of your own; unlike just giving you the filmmaker's side of the story (the way most traditional movies do).

We all grow up with some false assumptions about the world around us; about people, cultures, and even about nature itself... [e.g. Did you know that scientists still don't know how lightning happens even though it strikes the earth a 100 times per second?] Regardless, lightning is awesome, and scary and powerful.

Our movie, ALTERATIONS, the art installations and the online interactions we have created will let you explore and compare how we see ourselves to how other people see us in entertaining but meaningful ways.

Our 15 minute movie called ALTERATIONS (which you will be able to watch the old, missionary way)  will be preeeeeetty sweeeet that way BUT we have also created a WHOLE WORLD BEHIND THE CURTAIN that you will be able explore on your own.

THE STORY:

ALTERATIONS follows a young trans woman as she sets out to reconnect with her estranged mother for the first time as a woman. Months ago, when Jesus told his mother, Mary Jane, that he was going to transition into a woman, his mother had a heart attack. When Mary Jane came to, she did not remember who she was. ALTERATIONS chronicles a magical weekend escapade where the two women meet in their new identities and challenge each other to face their worse fears.

WHAT WE NEED:

We need to finish post production and we need to build the basic interactive prototype on the web.

We need $4,000 to finish the film.

We need and additional $5,300 to complete the website and build a working prototype.

We chose Hatchfund because

- only selected projects can fundraise on their site

they dont take any fees from the artist and because

- on Hatchfund.org, your contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

WHEN WE NEED IT:

We need to have an interactive prototype by May 15, 2015 in order to apply to two important interactive festivals and to Tribeca's New Media Fund.

OTHER FORMS TO HELP:

1.  Share our campaign in your social media far and wide (and at least once a week during peak times)
