Support LGBT rights in Greece with a film!

Posted on August 13 2011 by James

If you want to help the GLBT cause in Greece, help civil rights in the country and help get this film made, then now’s your chance.

We can confirm that “Shocking the Donkeys” is currently scheduled to be shot in Greece in the late summer of 2012 (probably September/October) with a view to release either late 2012 or early 2013. The project is in pre-production with that timetable in mind, and already has an outstanding director attached who has already had a considerable impact on changes to the script.

The budget is £500,000 (ideal) but the movie can be made on £200,000. We are about to enter the funding stage, and in the autumn of this year will be actively seeking the investment needed. While we intend to raise some of the money from traditional film investors, we also feel there should be a strong social element to this – a kind of “vote” on the importance of the issue, if you like. We will therefore be launching, this autumn, a special website aimed at securing so-called “crowd” or “social” funding to help finance the movie. This will be an opportunity for people in the LGBT community both internationally and especially in Greece to say: “This is a very important issue and we want to see this film made in order to put the question of LGBT marriage and other rights in Greece firmly on the table.”

Until the website is up and running, you can email us for a personal discussion about how you could help. EMAIL HERE
