This is Your Chance to Help Make a Bette Davis Drag Parody
Billy Clift, the director of Baby Jane? (2010) and who also happens to be the nephew of gay icon Montgomery Clift, needs your help. But why, you might ask?
Well, as you can see in the below video, Clift explains how any donation as little as $5 and as much as $5,000 (which comes with an executive producer credit) can help fund his latest film, Hush Up Sweet Charlotte, a feature-length drag parody of the 1964 thriller Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte starring Bette Davis and Olivia de Haviland.
Clift also explains how others with less-deep pockets can contribute to the film, one that he says may not necessarily “change lives” but will no doubt offer you a “few moments to forget your troubles.”
“Please spread the word and I mean spread it” he tells the camera. “Maybe you have skills that can be utilized for pre-production, production or post production. We love help: Like web design, graphic design, matte design, frequent flyer miles to fly in our stars, location scouting and help with food . . .” and on and on and on.
