Beauty and The Bear, needs your support !

Post date: Mar 20, 2012 8:4:35 AM

Beauty & The Bear is an interview-based television show which showcases Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (GLBTIQ) artists across a wide range of artforms.

Season One of ‘Beauty & The Bear’ screened on Television Sydney, C31 Adelaide and C31 Melbourne community broadcasters before being repackaged in 2011 for community channel Aurora which screens across Australia on Channel 183 of all pay-per-view platforms including Austar, Foxtel and Optus digital networks.

Our team is Nathan Little and Charles Bracewell, and we are fundraising to film and screen Season Two of ‘Beauty & The Bear’ in 2012.

We hope to raise 50% of the production budget through Pozible, and 50% through corporate sponsorship and fundraising concerts.

SO – Why support us? Three big reasons:

1. At this point in time ‘Beauty & The Bear’ is Australasia’s only queer arts TV show, and one of the few specifically Queer shows on television at all. So rather than be a footnote on another arts show (of which there are precious few anyway), or the sidekick on a sitcom, the successful artists of the Queer community are put front and centre.

2. By showcasing the work and achievements of GLBTIQ people, rather than making their sexuality the focus of the interviews, ‘Beauty & The Bear’ has given a voice to some of this country’s brightest talents indance, cabaret, theatre, radio, choreography, drag, music, comedy, costume design, DJ, visual art and filmmaking. We’ve celebrated some of the unsung heroes of our community and unearthed some fresh new talent – and let them tell their own stories.

3. We are a team that has a proven track record in film and TV production, and have successfully produced the first season of ‘Beauty & The Bear’ using our own money, so we are 100% committed to this project, and have the skills to realise it.
