These are just a few on set pics that were taken during the 2 day shoot for All About Sarah Niles.
We have made a movie fundraiser trailer and launched the event on indiegogo campaign site. Check out the trailer here. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/all-about-sarah-niles–2/x/5113624#home
The movie is an adaptation of the book Loving the Pink Kiss, that I (Shiralyn J Lee, Author/Screenwriter/Director) wrote and published. This is a romantic drama with a splash of comedy thrown into the mix.
The reason for making a movie out of my book ?
There just isn’t enough lesbian fun on screen. We ALL crave for romance. We ALL love drama. And we ALL enjoy a good laugh.
Well there’s more to this story than that. Apart from the immigration scam, most of this story is based on either my life or people who I have encountered on my journey. I was Sarah (sometimes I still am) My wife, Janice, is Robbie. We actually met through work, dated and were legally married 18months after meeting. Janice’s best friend, Helen, has been suffering with brain tumors over the past several years. She has had a number of operations and in our opinion, is one of the bravest people we know. We wanted to touch on the subject to bring awareness to light but without making the story too depressing. When I first met Janice, Helen had just had her first operation and it took a while for her hair to grow back and to get her life back to where she wanted it. But since writing this story Helen has had a number of follow up operations as the tumors re-grow and need to be removed.
Comedy, romance and drama are a great way to escape reality and from time to time we ALL need an escape at some point.
So how are we going to finance this movie ?
This is where we NEED you! Just donate a few dollars, more if you want to claim a perk. We have kept the perks simple as all too often campaign perks can become quite confusing on what you are actually getting for your money. As of this moment (one week into the campaign) we have raised, combined direct and indiegogo, just over $600 almost 1% of our goal.
With the fundraiser trailer, we only had 2 days and 2 locations to shoot. We applied as much info into the trailer as we could to give you the concept of the story. We need better sound quality for the feature and more locations. We will also need to pay and feed our cast and crew. With zero budget we cannot do this.
