Do You want to HELP?
While we are very excited to have Someday Stories funding, this really only covers our most basic costs.
We have chosen not to do a full-fledged Crowd Funding Campaign (even though we really should!) to contribute to the considerable costs that we as filmmakers will be shouldering.
While our canine stars may be cute, dogs with top-notch acting skills don't come cheap!
So if you want to help us and otherwise would happily have donated to a crowdfunding campaign, we've cut out the annoying step of spamming you for a few months and set up a quick and easy PayPal virtual tip jar above.
Any contribution would be GREATLY appreciated. Also send an email through to firstname.lastname@example.org if you donate and I'll be sure to get a special thanks for you in the credits of the film!

Winner of the Best NEW PILOT AT NZ WEB FEST 2017
TVNZ NEW BLOOD COMPETITION 2017 FINALIST
The Sisterhood is a webseries pilot about a group of women who have unique and secret power - to time travel when they have sex. Diana (Amanda Billing) is an experienced and independent traveller who returns home to find it is her turn to host half a dozen women from all different times and places.
She must help them navigate Auckland in 2017 to find a special someone that can help them get home. Much to Diana’s displeasure, it seems that first time traveller Bella will be here to stay until she can overcome her Victorian notions of sex and romance.
This Webseries Pilot came close to winning the public vote in TVNZ's New Blood Webseries Competition in 2017.

Calling Crypto (2015)
Follow a group of volunteers at a support centre and depression hotline for the much maligned Monster Community.
Meg and Charlie, human twins, try to hold the crumbling centre together against all odds. With no money and no manpower, they desperately try to train a rag tag team of volunteers before the centre is audited and shut down.
The volunteers include Louis, a resurrected man who's various donated body parts are putting him through an identity crisis. Frances, an opportunistic local politician desperate to take advantage of the "monster" vote. Mordecai, a gender confused 10,000 year old spirit trapped in the body of a girl. And Raewyn, a shy banshee equipped with a voice modulator which renders her voice nearly inaudible.
