"Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story" is a feature documentary on the current burlesque revival in New York City. It follows five inspiring performers both on and off-stage, each of whom chose to break free from lives of constraint to lives of liberation. Whether it was a drone existence in a dead end job, or a near-death experience in Hurricane Katrina, these brave women all found burlesque and never looked back.
As one dancer in the film says, "When I do burlesque I can be sexy, I can be ugly, I can be gorgeous, stupid or funny. I can be anything I want to be when I get on stage, and it's magical."
After 4 years of documenting these dancers, both on-stage and in their most intimate relationships, principal photography is complete. Now we need funds for post-production: editing, archival, music, color-correction and audio mixing.
We have a stellar post-production team waiting in the wings, but we cannot move forward without funding.
That's where YOU come in. Help us cross the finish line to complete a film that will not only titillate, but will challenge our views of beauty and nudity.
