Reese comes up with a nonsensical scheme to get what she's always wanted, a gay best friend.
GBFF is a short film written and directed by 13 year old Atheena Frizzell. It's funny, sweet and extremely entertaining in paper form and will be even more-so on screen!
The final movie will be right at 5 minutes long, which is the requirement for most High-School Shorts categories at film festivals.
Her script has been read and re-read by friends and family, allowing Atheena the constructive criticism that's so important in a sculpting a wonderful script. We need your help to make it happen!
Here are a few of the biggest expenses when making a movie.....
Food! When you ask people to work for you, on your project and for little or no money, you must at the very least, feed them. Making movies is hard work with long hours and you build up quite an appetite!
Equipment! While we have several pieces of equipment available to us at no cost, there are many other items that we'll have to rent in order to make a good movie. Most importantly, we'll need a nice camera so that the film looks great!
Actors/Crew! These people give their heart and soul to make great movies that everyone can enjoy. The least we can do is give them some gas money to get to and fro.
Festival Submissions! We fully intend to submit GBFF to every applicable film festival. These submissions cost money!
There are countless other expenses but these are the biggies. Anything you can give will help make this amazing project possible! Thank you so much!!!
