I wrote ANXIETY'S WILMA after watching a series of romantic short films that helped relieve me of some crippling anxiety. I understand that a short film can't magically fix mental health issues, but I do believe the way we talk about/represent mental health plays a big part in how we learn to take care of ourselves. My intent with this short film is to romanticize anxiety for people who struggle with it so that at the very least anxiety starts to feel less like the monster under the bed and more like someone we can get to know.
If you're looking to support the arts and/or know someone who might benefit from a feel-good short film that addresses mental health please consider pledging! Every bit helps! You can also help by sharing this page on social media using the hashtag: #AnxietysWilma or follow @anxietyswilma or @alexandrakyle on Instagram for posts you can like/share.
ANXIETY'S WILMA is about a young woman who gets an opportunity to communicate with her anxiety only to discover that her anxiety needs something from her.

Risks and challenges
The script is complete, our cast is on board and I've hired a producer and an AD. We are currently scouting locations and working on getting equipment and the rest of our crew together. Here's where you come in!
All the money generously donated to this project will serve to pay our fabulous cast and crew, to fund our locations and equipment costs and also to feed us while we work tirelessly to bring our vision to life.
If all goes well, we aim to start shooting in October in Los Angeles.
