Alone in a hotel room, we follow Michael as he readies himself to seduce a date. What arrives instead is his room service order - delivered by a waitress at the hotel named Jenny with whom Michael once had a relationship. As he tries to win her back, it is revealed the two are in fact actors on the set of an erotica film – but all is not as it seems…
Told through our engagement and disengagement with porn/erotica, Room 22 parodies romance in the millennial age: where physical intimacy takes precedence over real connection, even when the latter may be just what both parties seek.
Directed by Beatrice Hazlehurst and produced by Ariana Ward, Room 22 is the final project for two AUT film students/desperate film aficionados as graduation grows menacingly near. But, in order to tell this story WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Your funding will be used to pay rent a location for several days, as well as feed our hard working cast and crew and other small production costs.Any contributions, no matter how small are just beyond our wildest dreams.
On the completion of our film, be prepared for some hella sweet rewards (see rewards column).
Sending much love and gratitude,
Beatrice and Ariana.
Risks and challenges
Some challenges we may encounter (other than funding issues) is the availability of motel rooms, and we will require a room with a bath for scenes where the protagonist is listening to motivational tapes in the bathtub. If our preferred motel with a bath is unavailable we will respond to this by quickly finding an alternative that will still deliver an authentic setting for our film.
Of course time is another issue. We have a deadline of October 27 to have our production fully completed. In order to achieve this we will manage our time effectively, maintain strong communication between the team and aim to have deadlines met early, rather than on time while delivering a high quality production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
