Mindset is a 3 part short drama series, set in an alternate universe where gender roles are reversed. The story will follow various groups living in this universe, but their stories manage to weave in between each other with subtle connections.
In the first episode, we are introduced to Malcolm, a young stay at home father who becomes suspicious when his wife, Tiffany, starts to display unusual behaviour. His response to this results himself getting caught up in something beyond anything he's ever known before.
The issue that I’m exploring with my Final Media Project is gender stereotyping within film and television. The writing of films throughout history has revolved around firm gender stereotypes. Gender in film has been explored heavily in 2017, with many female lead films taking the forefront, such as ‘Wonder Woman’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Pitch Perfect 3’, but the stereotypes within them are still prevalent. With my project, I intend to warp the viewer’s perception of gender roles onscreen in a literal sense.
I'm intending on using the raised funds on locations, cast and crew, travel and buying props for the series.
There are also still roles available, please contact me via my business email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I really hope you consider my project as something worth funding as I'm really excited to create this, and I would appreciate anything you can put towards it!
