ARO and/or ACE documentary

Recommended Posts

Hello community!

 

My name is Alexandra Roca, I'm a filmmaker (www.alexandraroca.com) currently developing a film documentary project. I reaching out to people who identify as ACE and/or ARO to explore the concept of love and inclusion. We are currently looking to document a personal story to understand and celebrate different perspectives. If interested, please get in touch: media@alexandraroca.com

Best, Alexandra

Hi @Alexandra
That sounds like a great project. Maybe if you write a bit more about the criteria it would be easier for people to determine if they can be part of it. For example, what part of the world are you working from? I suppose you're not going to go all over the world filming various people?

Thanks Holmbo for your feedback, much appreciated! 
 
I'm updating the post with a message I put in the other conversation! Please see below! 
 
We are currently putting together a pitch and learning how to best portray and explore the concept of "Belonging", and reaching out to people before I put together the materials / proposal to have representation and make sure we're telling the story the way you want it to be told. I totally get what you're saying about conveying a story in a certain way, that is not beneficial or positive to an individual, or individuals. This is not the case for this documentary -- Our aim is to make it as personal as possible so that people can relate, even if they didn't know these possibilities and diverse experiences existed before, and maybe (hopefully) can inspire others to explore their own inclinations further. In terms of how the story is told, we (crew) would be a shadow, enhancing how the story is being told but the captain of your story is YOU. Please check my work for reference, my style is verité and intimate and I really make an effort to move away from "sensationalist" styles of work. 
 
The documentary is for a mainstream platform but it will be released via the internet and social media, mainly instagram.
Funding: a grant from the platform if it gets picked up (PBS / POV).
 
Answering questions below:
 
* Ideally, we would follow 3 people to represent diverse experiences and perspectives in a one-to-one dynamic 
* It wouldn't be done virtually, we would go to you (fly, find accommodation and adapt to your situation and timing)
* Dates are TBD but we would aim for the summer
* It wouldn't be anonymous. You have to want to share and tell your story publicly 
 
Logistics: 
 
We would follow you for a few days (day-to-day life) and get to know you. The aim would be to:
1. Understand your perspective and situation (and context. Example: What is attraction to you, why you identify as "y", what made you realize you're "y", how you see love, relationships, sex et al. while seeing your life, and again, getting to know YOU
2. See how we can create awareness about different perspectives that is not the "standard" 
3. Inspire others 
 
More info, please email me: media@alexandraroca.com 
Thanks!

I mean that I'm new in this whole romantic and sexual orientation thing so I wouldn't be able to answer the kind of questions you ask. Plus I'm not sure my parents would let me participate and even if they did my spoken English it's lame. 😅😅😅😅😅
