Help Us Finish Nance + Sydney
We filmed Nance + Sydney in New York City! It was initially supposed to be for a 48 hour film project, but we wanted to take it further.
When we were filming, we had several problems with our audio equipment . We were contending with New York City traffic, at one of the busiest parks, that also featured a loud band. Needless to say, while the story turned out great, the sound quality suffered.

The visuals and story turned out great. The cast and crew are enthusiastic about this project! With so few stories featuring disabled and LGBT characters told with authenticity, we really want to get this out to film festivals.
In order to do so, we need to re-record some of the audio and get professional editing. This means paying our actors to go into a studio to record the audio.

Nance + Sydney is a fun romantic comedy penned by screenwriter Ashtyn Law. It stars Shannon Devido and Jennifer Suter, as a former couple, who meet in the park one fateful day.
Additionally, we would like to pay for professional color correction, and need help with some of the fees for the film festivals we would like to enter.
Your help ensures that a story with diverse characters gets told!
Money will go to:
-editing to tighten up the film
-paying our two actors and crew
-re-recording ADR in a studio + studio rental costs
-professional sound editing
-professional color correction
-submission to multiple film festivals
Thank you for your thoughts and consideration.
