Great, Aunt

Film Description

The film is about a wealthy older black woman who because an agreement with her sister, reluctantly hires her ex drug addicted niece as her maid and housekeeper. This film follows a day in these ladies’ lives and explores their relationship. I hope for this film to ultimately ask the question, "How important is family?" 

Even though it is a short film I hope to tough on ideas of racism, classicism and sense of duty within a family.

The setting of the film takes place in Katherine's, the rich aunt's, home. I envision it to be a nice home, a symbol of her class status. In order to secure a location of this magnitude, feed crew and transport people it will take a sizable amount or money. And that's where you come in!

All funding will go to the direct production of "Great , Aunt". Money in particular will go to securing a shooting location, transportation for the cast and crew, and set design.

Risks and challenges

Having tackled a project of this size I do not foresee there being many risks and challenges involved. I have been making films for ten years, so should any challenges arise I have full confidence that I can make it work!
