Choices and Trends for Women "from Teens to Grandmothers"

We Recommend Crowdfunding the FILM project SHEILA SCORNED *Seed&Spark

We always encourage our community to support crowdfunding projects and we admire crowdfunder Seed&Spark. So we are overjoyed to rally support for and write about the short film these independent LA filmmaking women have been working on for the past few months- a revenge grindhouse thriller called SHEILA SCORNED.

On the surface, SHEILA SCORNED may seem like any other grindhouse, but the film they are planning to make digs deeper than just over-the-top violence and cheeky one-liners. For writer/director Mara Tasker, the film is an impassioned response to the headlines we see every day of the horrific injustices perpetrated on women all over the world. It’s a revenge fantasy for a female artist whose only outlet for her outrage is the medium of film. Don’t get them wrong, they plan to make an entertaining, bloody, and awesome grindhouse flick- it just happens to have a point too.
THE CROWD FUNDING CAMPAIGN HAS LAUNCHED, SO PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!!
Please click here for campaign page & be sure to watch the video: http://www.seedandspark.com/studio/sheila-scorned.
If you dig the project and it speaks to you in any way, they would be incredibly grateful for your support.  Crowdfunding campaigns that achieve at least 30% of their goal within the first few days have the highest rate of success, so if you do plan on giving, do it support within the next 72 hours.  Any support you can give counts towards the $35,000 they need to raise to pay for the camera, locations, stunts, special effects, and all the other elements that will go into making SHEILA SCORNED look amazing.
And of course, help us spread the word! Please tweet, post, and blog about it (#sheilascorned). And take a look at the awesome look book which they attached!

Sheila Scorned

When Sheila inadvertently messes up a major drug deal, local kingpin Barry and his goons kidnap her from the club where she dances. Unfortunately for Barry, Sheila happens to be a trash-talkin’ ass kicker – and a bit of a psychopath. And there’s nothing she hates more than men on a power trip.
