UPDATE: Yes, technically we’ve already reached our “goal” because we initially decided to set it very low as a way of making sure we raised at least some money ( on Kickstarter you only get the money if you reach your goal ). Now that we’re past the nervousness of getting anything at all, we can focus on actually completely, fully covering all the costs, and that’s why any amount will make a difference.
That out of the way, now back to our story...
The Devil Between Us is an independent short drama co-written by Livia Margon and Flavia Borges. The film will also be directed by Margon and have Flavia as the female lead. Margon is a soon to be graduate of the School Of The Art Institute of Chicago double majoring in Film and Visual and Critical Studies. Borges is a Chicago-based film and stage actress who's appeared in the TV series The Mob Doctor by FOX and most recently in the feature length film Life and Death of An Unhappily Married Man.
We've secured a small crew who's extremely talented and dedicated. Everyone is donating their time to the project. Filmmaking, however, is a huge commitment and even though we've got the enthusiasm and energy to make it all happen successfully, we still need funds to cover catering for our crew and actors, securing a location, as well as equipment rental. This includes cameras, lenses, tripods, lighting, sound, etc.
We're proud to be an ALL FEMALE creative team. For those who are familiar with the film industry, that is a rare thing to see and we want to do our part to change this by supporting each other.
A New York Times article puts things in perspective for you. "In 2014 only 1.9 percent of the movies were directed by women. Girls/women make up less than a third of all speaking characters on screen and less than a quarter of the leads/co-leads driving the story lines. And yet women make up half the population and have brought half the movie tickets." Wanna help change this?
To make this project a success, we NEED YOUR HELP. Please follow the link below and donate! Any (no, really) any amount will help. We're looking to reach $500.00 in just 15 days. It's a small amount for what we're trying to accomplish but it'll go a long way.
Thanks for your support!

O drama entitulado O Diabo Entre Nós será um curta indepente co-escrito por Lívia Margon e Flávia Borges. Margon também será a diretora do filme e Flávia, a protagonista. Margon está prestes a se graduar pela School of the Art Institute com especializacao em Cinema e Estudos Visuais Críticos. Borges é atriz de cinema e teatro que participou em series de TV e filmes independentes como The Mob Doctor da FOX e o longa metragem Life And Death of An Unhappily Married Man.
Nossa equipe é extremamente talentosa e dedicada. Todos estão doando seu tempo para a realização deste projeto. A execução de um filme como o nosso é bastante exigente, e mesmo com todo o entusiasmo e dedicação da nossa equipe, será necessário investimento em aluguel de equipamentos de filmagem, aluguel de locação e alimentação da equipe durante as filmagens.
É com muito orgulho que podemos afirmar ser um time criativo EXCLUSIVAMENTE FEMININO. Quem conhece a indústria cinematográfica internacional sabe que isso raramente acontece, visto que o sexo masculino domina todos os setores da indústria. Esta foi a forma que encontramos de ajudar a mudar esse cenário e apoiar umas às outras.
Por isso, viemos pedir a sua ajuda para contribuir com nossa campanha no Kickstarter. Qualquer valor irá ajudar. Nossa meta é atingir 500 dólares em apenas 15 dias. Pouco, se comparado a proposta que iremos realizar com muito trabalho e dedicação.
Contamos com o seu apoio!
Lívia e Flávia
