This comedic drama with a dystopian technology twist shines a light on an underrepresented group: LGBTQ professional athletes navigating the homophobic sports world. The show was created by Philip Johnson, and inspired by his experience growing up as a closeted gay track athlete. 

From its Modern Family-level of undeniable humor with a majority-black cast, to its Black Mirror-level of fictional+dystopian technology, to its one-of-a-kind incorporation of Professional Track & Field, Flip Flop will entertain & impact global communities. Flip Flop will be funny/entertaining as hell. After all, have you seen Philaye Films' 1st YouTube web-series: Black Sex & The City ?

Let's talk specifics to help build your trust in us:

-Filming a 25-30 minute pilot episode
-We started filming in July 2019, in Los Angeles, California. We still have scenes left to film in August that we need more funds in order to afford. Most expenses thus far have been covered out-of-pocket or through credit.
-After releasing the pilot, we will shop it around to major networks/producers/distributors to get it picked up and brought to TV screens.

        Professional-level equipment/camera/sound/lighting: $1,100
                                                                                       Labor + Equipment through STU25 (production company)

Any help with this mission to provide black creatives of LGBTQ and all other identities to financially sustain themselves in the field of their passion, through telling captivating stories, is immeasurably appreciated. Our art will inspire the hearts of many, but it takes money to create these opportunities!
