What is it about?
In a dystopian future where women have taken over and men are farmed for them, Mrs. Hold enters The Agency with the purpose of buying her third Husband. What she finds inside changes the idea of the World she lives in.
I am a feminist.
It´s taken me ages to find that out. From getting inexplicably angry at some boys´ comments when I was at school to working in one of the most misogynist industries in the world: The Film and TV Industry.
Now I have to find out what that means. Do I hate men? I don´t hate men. I love men. Ok, they break your heart. Sometimes. Have women ever not broken a man´s heart? There you go. They like sleeping around. Do women not like having s**? I doubt it.
Yeah, ok, we´re different. But we are all people. Gender should not define the important things in life. There is a woman, a wonderful woman with a wonderfully complicated name: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She explains what I mean much better than I do in this little book that I found (based on her TED talk) We should all be feminists. That´s what my short is about.
I am a 25-year-old woman with big dreams. I want to direct the next big fantasy movie. I want to prove that women can also create big, meaningful, full of action movies. That we can be cool, that we can fight, we can create. We can imagine big characters, and small characters, for big and small stories. We can be dramatic, funny, sad, quirky, we can be everything and anything we are able to imagine.
So we can also direct big studio movies. That is my final goal. In the meantime, I need to build up to that, and learn. And make kick-ass meaningful short films like "The Agency". Maybe with your help, I can.
What we need the money for
It´s going to be a two-day shoot in September. We need the money for the location, which is the Roca Gallery in London, you can check it out here: http://www.rocalondongallery.com/
We also need money for transport, food, equipment, soundtrack... basically to cover everything that every department needs plus anything we as humans need to survive for two days.
I´ve put together an amazing crew and we just need a little bit of help to make this Sci-Fi look as good as you can imagine!
We want to thank you in advance for your help, for believing in us, for making this possible.
Thank you for helping us make our project a reality!
