WE’RE HAVING A GAYBY!
Your digital presence is requested at our online GAYBY SHOWER!
Help us celebrate the birth of our new GAYBY by selecting a gift from our registry-mixtape listed at the right of this page.
It costs a lot to raise a GAYBY! If you are a mother or if you’ve ever had one, we encourage you to join in the festivities. No gift is too small or too big! In return for your gift, we’ll be eternally grateful and also send you a musical party favor.
OK, enough of that. Here's the deal:
GAYBY, the feature version of the award-winning short film GAYBY that has played at over a hundred film festivals worldwide, is going into production this August. We are seeking funds. Please help if you can. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Making an independent film in New York City in the current climate is definitely a challenge, but it is one we are thrilled to take on. Everything here is expensive, but we love our city and can't imagine telling this story anywhere else. With that in mind we are asking for your help and support.
What are we going to use your money for? Well, they say comedy is all about ... ... timing ... wait ... no ... timing. What we require to make our film truly soar is the best editorial and post-production services we can manage on our budget. We have enough to make our film, but we will need a bit more in order to finish the project in a way that will look and feel as great as we know it can.
We truly cherish any contribution you are willing to make for us. In keeping with our song-title prize theme we have:
GAYBY IT'S YOU! - Give any amount and you'll get bi-weekly, bi-friendly project updates from the creative team. They may come more often, but we wanted to say bi twice.
If you don’t want a prize at all we have another option:
IT’S ALL OVER NOW, GAYBY BLUE! - If you would like to contribute purely because you’re awesome, then you should get a tax write off. So please go directly to our Fractured Atlas page and donate there. Link here: https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/fiscal/profile?id=4751

A synopsis of GAYBY:
Jenn and Matt are best friends from college who are now in their 30s. Single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching hot yoga and running errands for her boss. Matt suffers from comic-book writer’s block and can’t seem to get over his ex-boyfriend. They decide to fulfill a youthful promise and have a baby together… the old-fashioned way. Can they navigate the serious and unexpected snags they hit as they prepare for parenthood by trying to get their careers and dating lives back on track? GAYBY is an irreverent comedy about friendship, growing older, sex, loneliness, and the family you choose.
