Someone You Know

My project is a short documentary titled "Someone You Know".

LOGLINE: Three women share their complex later abortion stories and the barriers they had to overcome to get the care they needed.

Today in America, 1 in 3 women will have an abortion before the age of 45. Less that 2% of overall abortions are performed at or after 21 weeks. Yet this demographic has become the target of political misinformation and attacks. In “Someone You Know”, we will meet 3 women who have had abortions later in their pregnancies. Bravely stepping out of the shadows to use their real names and faces, each of the women share their complex, heartbreaking and frustrating stories of having to overcome numerous burdens to get the care they needed.

I am applying to secure some post production money to help me finish this film! It was shot entirely on an iphone 11 during COVID. I am working with an animator to recreate the most important aspects of each of the stories, where we don't have B-Roll like I would with a regular film.
