What is this?

"Hey! - A Queer Romance" is a short Romantic comedy but it's not your typical boy meets girl. In fact it's more like: boy meets boy, meets boy, meets boy?

Who are  you?

I'm Alex B. McGarry (Writer/Producer), a Queer filmmaker who is sick of seeing the same story told over and over by the same people. So I want to tell the stories of people outside the mainstream.

Other people are also working on the film, It's not all about me.

Fi Nicholson - Director.

Georgia Wilde - Co-Producer

Jose Carlos Rueda - DOP

Corinne Thomas - Art Director

Petra Lewis & Holly Isherwood - Camera Team

Pete Lomas - Sound Recordist

Hattie Williams - Editor

Stuart Hole - colourist

As well as others working behind the scenes to bring Hey! to you lovely people.

Well, What's it about then?

Think of the last Rom-Com you saw, it probably had a very nice looking lady and a classically handsome man in it, right? They got together then fell out but realised they loved each other in the end, we've all seen this movie. A lot.

I want to make the complete opposite of that: It's going to be rude; it's going to be crude and it's going to be gay.

Frank is a 20 something gay man who has had his heart broken by his ex boyfriend and current flatmate Phil. Seeing Phil going on a date drives Frank to meet Nathan - a handsome and charming man - but little does the pair know that they are both exes of Phil. Can they overcome this awkward connection and find true love? Or at the very least a decent shag? Give us money and find out!

Here's What's going to happen:

  • If we hit our minimum we can pay actors and get a basic location (with a little left over to reward your generosity).
  • If we reach our full goal: then we can pay our actors, get a cool location, reward you lot, pay all our fee's, get awesome props and send the film to festivals - where hopefully important people will like it.
