Who are Queer Club Films?


Well, we're a bunch of queer and transgender kids between 13 and 20 from rural and the outer south east suburbs of Melbourne, who got really sick of never seeing good or accurate representation of us in the media (if any at all) and decided to take matters into our own hands. 'Marcus' is a collaboration that started with us all sitting around a table shouting about all our real-life experiences of the annoying, frustrating, disturbing and hilarious things people say to you when you're trans - and how we're sick of non-trans people telling that story wrong. We're a collection of drop-outs and high school sudents with no experience in film making, but a load of aspirations pointed in that direction - so together we wrote, directed, filmed, edited and starred in the whole project.



What is 'Marcus' about?


The day after their elder brother Marcus comes out as transgender, Bonnie and Benny, a pair of curious twins set out – to the great dismay of everyone around them – to learn more, armed only with a camera, stubborn dedication, and a touch of ignorance. Starring the members of Queer Club alongside comedians Cal Wilson, Broden Kelly, Demi Lardner and Lori Bell.



Why are we fundraising?


This Pozible has been set up to help us raise the money to send our director Rowan (19) and editor Morgan (20) to LA, not just to collect the award on behalf of the cast and crew of Marcus, but to take advantage of the amazing prize of attending a special young filmmakers masterclass and workshop at the prestigious LA Film School.


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these talented and committed budding young filmmakers and a great chance to hone their skills for the benefit of our group for future film projects.


We have put together some great rewards and we hope that with your generous support we can reach our target and get Rowan and Morgan to LA in October.


Beyond?


Our hope is this campaign smashes our target so Queer Club Films can realise our ultimate dream of developing Marcus into series of comedy webisodes following Marcus and his friends; exploring same sex attraction, gender and identity diversity story concepts that we have been developing to entertain and educate people on the challenges and triumphs of being a queer teen in everyday suburban Australia.
