YOU ME & HER

 

Anna has a run-in with several alternate versions of herself from other universes. Not only does she find out that she is the worst possible version of herself, but also that if she changes her current life trajectory her actions will cause the world to explode!

 

In the absurd comedic world that Sarah Doyle has created in YOU ME & HER, every major choice you have ever made in your life creates a different universe where that particular choice plays out.

 

MEET THE LEAD ACTOR

Shannon Woodward

 

We are excited to announce Raising Hope star Shannon Woodward is joining the cast to play the lead, Anna. Shannon will also play the supporting roles of Anna 2, Anna 3, Anna 4, Anna 5, Anna 6, Anna 7 and Anna 8.

 

Watch Shannon Woodward's interview with Craig Ferguson here:

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?

 

We need a full $25,000 to shoot, produce, edit and market YOU ME & HER. So far we have raised around $10,000 outside of Indiegogo, but we need your help to reach our total goal. 

 

Here are some of the things your donation will fund:

  • Visual FX and Post-production
  • Locations and film permits (Film LA)
  • Sound
  • Wardrobe
  • Art Department: contruction, props and set dressing etc.
  • Camera and lighting equipment
  • Catering for the cast and crew
  • Transportation

In order to make sure you are absolutely immersed in Anna’s surreal experience of meeting her other selves, this film requires a Motion Control dolly system -- a pricey piece of equipment. 

 

AFI - AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE

 

 

The American Film Institute was founded in 1967 as a national arts organization to train filmmakers and preserve America’s vanishing film heritage.

 

“We will create an American Film Institute that will bring together leading artists of the film industry, outstanding education, and young men and women who wish to pursue this 20th century art form as their life’s work,” declared President Lyndon Johnson upon signing the legislation that brought AFI into being.

 

Today the AFI is recognized as one of the best film schools in the world.

 

AFI’s DIRECTING WORKSHOP FOR WOMEN (DWW)

 

The program was established in 1974 in response to a major need voiced by talented, professional women working within film and television -- the need for opportunities to demonstrate their abilities and skills as screen directors.

 

Each year up to 8 women are selected internationally to participate in this prestigious workshop. Sarah is one of those women.

 

“In 2012, women accounted for 9% of feature film directors, an increase of 4 percentage points from 2011 but even with the percentage of women directors in 1998.”

- Centre for the Study of Women in TV & FIlm, San Diego State University

 

Alumnae of the program include Maya Angelou, Tricia Brock, Hanelle Culpepper, Randa Haines, Victoria Hochberg and Leslie Linka Glatter.

 

In recent years, actors who have starred in DWW films include: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Brie Larson, Mirelle Enos, Anna Camp, and Shohreh Aghdashloo to name a few. Several early films received Academy Award nominations and many alumni have won awards at film festivals, including Cannes.

CAN I HELP EVEN IF I DON'T DONATE?

 

Yes, of course you can! For people living in the Los Angeles Area working in the film and television industries, we would love your input and help.  We will be crewing up in the coming months and will need to fill plenty of crew postitions. 

If you or someone you know are interested in contributing to our film with equipment or by becoming part of the crew, feel free to drop us a line.  We would love to hear from you!

CALL TO ACTION

 

If you are inspired by this project, or if the video made you laugh, please tell your friends about it. This is going to take a small army of generous people like you who really believe in the project. It really is true, every dollar counts!!! And when we are fully funded, we are going to be able to share with you an entertaining and thought-provoking film that you can be proud you helped to create.

 

YOU ME & HER is an incredibly important step in Sarah's career as she transitions from theatre into film and television. She has worked for over a decade creating compelling stories to share with audiences worldwide. This opportunity provided by AFI will profoundly elevate that outreach with your support.
