Award-winning out filmmaker Sal Bardo has an intriguing idea for his next project, and he needs your help.
Bardo is launching a Kickstarter campaign for his new short film Pink Moon, which is intended to explore the fallout of an unplanned pregnancy between two teens in a society in which heterosexuality isn’t tolerated and abortion is forbidden.
It’s a thought provoking idea that hasn’t been seen before, and we’re definitely into it. The short film is intended as the precursor to a feature-length screenplay, a tactic that was used successfully by 2011’s LGBT indie hit Pariah.
Forbidden love? Persecuting straights? We’re definitely in.
But seriously, check out the video below, and remember that sometimes opening up your wallets is the only way to ensure that bold visions like this from an LGBT filmmaker can actually make it to the screen.
Otherwise, it’s all Transformers XVI and Guardians Of The Galaxy (though we hear Chris Pratt’s abs are quite nice).
