Filmmaker, lesbian and all-around globe trotter Anna Margarita Albelo is hard at work on the set of her next film project I’m Afraid of Virginia Wolf starring Guinevere Turner (Go Fish, The L Word), Janina Gavankar (The L Word, True Blood) and Carrie Preston (True Blood, The Good Wife) and Agnes Olech. And SheWired has photos from the set!
Albelo has been a film festival favorite with A Lez in Wonderland (a documentary about the Dinah Shore Weekend featuring Guinevere Turner) and with Hooters, her smart, funny and insightful behind-the-scenes examination of The Watermelon Woman director Cheryl Dunye’s The Owls.
Now, Albelo is working to raise money for a feature-length film and she could use your help either with sponsorships for the film project or with volunteering on set! Here is Albelo’s call for volunteers and sponsors:
Want to sponsor a "Day of Coffee" for the set or a Tera Byte or two hard drive for our dailies? We have magical volunteer PAs and Crew but some of them are coming as far as Covina or Orange County to help the film. Gas is evil but it's necessary to get us where we're going. We have several ways you can sponsor any of these things or just chip in to keep us on track.
1. Tax Free donation via our partner Filmmakers Alliance. Contact our Production Coordinator: Janelle Eagle.
2. Donate on our Website via Pay Pal
3. Buy a T-shirt to be delivered after we've wrapped - over a dozen t-shirt colors to choose from.
Anything would help and you will be thanked on our credits (if you haven't already joined the Wolf Pack). For Anyone donating $500 or more Anna Albelo will personally execute a gourmet meal for you and your friends this summer! Thanks again for following my adventures and helping me live my dreams. More news and fewer solicitations soon!
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Scott Esterly. We wrap February 18th, 2012 and then it's on to post-production!
