About

What happens when people from two different cultures try to make a romantic connection? “L’Amour (or less…)” is a collection of short films woven together to answer that very question… 

Artistically shot on location in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, “L’Amour (or less…)” features re-enactments of actual dates between expatriates and the French. Some of these true stories are romantic and charming, some are distinctly not, and some are just bizarre. 

Each episode will tell the tale of either Jane (an expat Everywoman) and Pierre (a French Everyman), or John (an expat Everyman) and Marie (a French Everywoman), or some combination therein. The series will be in English, but with a healthy sprinkling of charming French accents.

Risks and challenges

With your very generous donations, totalling $60,000, we will bring you the first four installments of our 12-episode first season.

We are very proud of the video we have created for you here, but we produced it with centimes scraped together. We were incredibly lucky to have attracted such an array of talented, professional cast and crew, all of whom worked tirelessly. And for free.

We paid only for equipment, a makeup kit and food. Everything else was donated, including locations.

Working with an international team, not all of whom speak the same languages, brings about its own challenge. Most of which results in hilarity, which we will show you in the behind-the-scenes and making-of clips.

With the $60,000 we are asking for here, we know we can bring you four high-quality episodes, above and beyond what we have here. We would be able to begin to weave together the tales that these short films tell. And we would love to show them to you!

If we raise more money, we can make more episodes, pay our hard-working cast and crew a little more, use better equipment, and use even better locations. Paris' the limit!

We want to showcase local musicians, artists and photographers in our episodes. We want to help them reach you, and vice versa.

Please check our website, which we will be updating regularly, and please feel free to ask us questions!
