so my good friend claris’ dad and my dad have worked together on this film competition her dad founded for like six or seven years now and since the cut off age is 24 next year is the last year i can enter there’s a prize for social justice themed films and one for technology and mental health… I was thinking of making a short film about online spaces and how they’ve sustained me as a disabled nonstraight noncis person and found some of the dearest people in my life and i was wondering if that would be cool?
I’d probably centre it around me personally as not to break the rule of the film being centred around new zealanders so there’d be an element of me and seph (if hes comfortable with it of course) and how we negotiate long distance but also I was wondering if my other friends like @dubsdeedubs, @knife-red and @zackdoesart would be interested in weighing in cause like I love all of y'all and the internet is witchcraft that has blessed me with these fucking memelord friends. I wouldn’t require any identifying info, no face cam or anything maybe screenshots and that’s it? If you wanna add more that’d be great too?
I dunno i just wanna make a love letter to the tech that saved my life many a team and state while it definitely is a shitty cesspit of human filth the internet is not how it’s portrayed not every millennial editorial comic ever, and more selfishly because Current Events mean everything is up in the air the very rare chance of me winning the prize money, some of which is up to $10k would be a literal life saver for seph and me, and left emergency money to put away for visas and travel costs If things get so bad we needa get the boy outta dodge.
