Dan wakes one morning to find not only his penis gone, but in its place, a vagina.
(Created by Alessandra Bautista)
Hermaphroditus is Catherine Kim's magic realism film grown out of the question:
What if you woke up one day to find your special parts turned into those of the opposite sex?
This is precisely what happens to Dan. This poses a problem to Dan as he feels the same, but struggles with his threatened masculinity. Hermaphroditus alludes to the same-named deity, and 'creature of both sexes' of Greek mythology. Accordingly, Hermaphroditus chronicles Dan's journey, as he eventually accepts and even embraces this bizarre change in his life, finally finding his match.
Specifically, Hermaphroditus is an NYU intermediate narrative, and will be shot on the SONY EX-1.
Why We Need Your Help!
Short films are the calling card of filmmakers wanting to break into the industry of moviemaking. As a cupcake is to a cake, the short film is to the feature-length film! Catherine personally loves cupcakes, and Hermaphroditus is to be a scrumptious bite-sized morsel of a film. But even an independent student film is not cheap. Filmmaking is team effort in combination with resources that require funds, as described next.
What We Need Your Help For
- Transporting our lovely crew and equipment. It's not the destination, but the journey, as they say. We need support safely moving everyone and everything from point A to point B!
- Feeding our hungry crew. These filmmaking machines need fuel.
- Securing locations that are essential to the story. Location, location, location. We intend on renting a lovely apartment that is the setting of Hermaphroditus' script, as well as a bar where an essential part of the story takes place.
We are asking for support in monetary donations, but any forms, such as services, are more than welcome.
Hermaphroditus the film thanks you for your consideration and time!
