FOURPLAY: SAN FRANCISCO

$2,955

NOTE: Although we've reached our "goal", we still need at least another 15% ($375) to off-set Amazon's service fees, photo printing, and rewards shipping to clear a full $2.5K. Anything over that will help pay for the $1K workshopping of TAMPA, the third 4PLAY short, our public bathroom sex-farce that we are shooting in May 2010!

FOURPLAY is a collection of four honest, graphic stories of sexual intimacy. With the film, we intend to honor our unconventional understanding of human sexuality, with its complications and idiosyncrasies, rendering our work with humor, sincerity, and love. No pornography. No brutality. Just sexuality, strange and true.

In AUSTIN, an unmarried couple find an unusual way to resolve their debate about having a baby. In WEST HAVEN, an older woman falls for her pastor’s dog. In TAMPA, a poorly endowed gay man finds unexpected company in a public restroom. And in SAN FRANCISCO, a professional transvestite hooker faces a challenging prospect on a business call to Marin County.

Our mission is to rescue film-sex from mere titillation, pornography, and digression, with an eye toward discovering its cathartic, healing nature. We intend for these films—whether comedic, surreal, tender, or harrowing—to challenge you, entertain you, subvert your notions of normal sexual behavior, and hopefully give you something to think and talk about.

We shot the first short, SAN FRANCISCO, in 2009 with funding provided in part by a grant from the Austin Film Society's Texas Filmmakers Production Fund and Jim McKay and Michael Stipe's artist-incubator, C-Hundred Film Corp.

With your help, we will finance post-production on SAN FRANCISCO, which will include a sound mix and HD color correction. Your donation can be tax-deductible; please contact me via the email link for 501(c)3 info.
