Nobody Loves Me. A Short Film.
A man struggles with the consequences of the decision to reveal his life long desire to be a woman. Misery ensues.
Nobody Loves Me is a tragic story about a man, who has finally decided to be himself. Which is to mean, he's finally decided that it is time to be the woman he was born to be. As you might imagine, that is much easier said than done. Throughout the course of his transition Tobias is met with adversity, not the least of which comes from his wife, who previously had no clue about her husband's secret desire. In an act of sheer desperation, Tobias starts spending time on dating websites, as a female, looking to meet eligible women, who also think he is a woman.
True, our story is about an individual whose sex at birth was assigned male and now who later in life wants to live happily as his true self, a female without shame. However, at the heart of the story are a few inalienable truths all of us face every single day. We all want to be happy. We all want to be beautiful. We all want to be loved for who we are on the inside. These things are exactly what it feels like to be a human being, no matter who you are, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you choose to love. We are not alone. We are one.
That is exactly why we want to tell this story. Please help us bring it to life. In fact, we cannot do it without you. If you can't back this project monetarily, we also accept tweets, re-tweets, Facebook post, blog entries, and any other brand of publicity your pretty little brain can come up with.
If you'd like to join the conversation, you can follow writer/director, Michael Bekemeyer on Twitter.

Risks and challenges
Making a film is always a difficult and trying task. It's a battle we are most willing to fight, but there are almost always bound to be setbacks and complications, especially when making a film on a low budget. We have to nickel and dime all of the problems into submission because a very large percentage of the budget goes to actually paying the cast and crew for their time. You have to be frugal and smart about where and how you spend the production's money.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
