Telomeres is a film about relationships and unconditional love, and the sacrifices we have to make to maintain them. A hotshot astronaut suddenly thirty-five years younger than his husband, thanks to the relativistic effects of his light-speed voyage, must overcome the conflict between his love for the fast life and his commitment to his aging partner.

Telomeres is a short film, to be shot on super 16 film in April, funded in part by a grant from Studio 22 of Northwestern University. The grant was for $3000, but our current total budget is closer to $7000, so we still need to raise about $4000. We'd love for you to be a part of this effort!

The funds raised here will go towards the costs of production, including purchasing film stock, film developing, production design, equipment rentals, transportation, catering, and distribution costs.

This film is to be completed by June of this year.

Thank you so much for your time and generous support!

Love,
Nic, Max, and the rest of the Telomeres Team
