help us put out a short film

Donation protected
What's up- Danielle Bero here. I wrote a short script and filmed it with some of my incredibly talented and underpaid film homies. We are looking for funding to subsidize equipment and editing costs as well as submit to festivals and use this as a proof of concept for a potential series. Absolutely any amount helps to get this film made, take care of the folks involved and send it out into the world! This short film explores intersectionality and normalizes the dating world, in its sometimes weirdly universal experience.

As a poet, I believe in exploring identity and experience as the substance of my art. Fruit Loops is the extension of my own experience which in some ways is a very universal one. This is my first project as a screenwriter and also as a director and after several decades in a different field, I was finally able to begin my pathway in film. I intentionally cultivated a cast and crew of women, nonbinary and queer folks to work on this mockumentary style short film. Fruit Loops is a love letter to queer storytelling where the focal point isn’t trauma or fighting for acceptance. I seek to display raw, genuine intersectionality and raw, genuine human connections in all their beauty and ugliness with the queer community as the backdrop for these stories being told. It is a priority now more than ever to tell joyful and normalizing stories to connect all of our experiences and find the humor in our struggles to find love and belonging.
