The Action-Packed Blockbuster Science Fiction Short Film Series
Got nothing to do today, want to be apart of something big and amazing?!!!!
Then get behind NOVR: Blood and Steel and help the team make the next short film, so we can keep driving towards making a Feature film.
A simple donation of even $10 will be a huge help in getting us closer to our target, so we can make the next NOVR Short.
So please click on the link and donate what you can. By donating, you will not only be supporting me, but will become apart of this amazing project.
Hey guys! I am asking for your help!! I have seen tumblr pull money together to get a script just to see what could have been, raise money for a scene to be realised and even get a girl her chicken. So I know we can band together for the love of each other and a good cause.
This project means alot to me, my brother Marty is the producer, my brother Steve designed and hand made ALL the costumes and some of the sets, my mother and I headed up catering and my little brother and father were in the first short film. My family has put blood, sweat, tears, time and money into this. It has already payed off with amazing reviews in short film festivals across the world. We really want to be able to take it to the next level and prove the Australian Film Industry is still very much alive and kicking with new ideas and fresh talent. BUT we need help. For the second instalment we need at least $10,000. Whatever you can give to help us reach that goal would be so so amazing!
Please spread this around and if you can donate I would be so incredibly grateful.

So I should preface this with I work in a “women’s” clothing store (I use the term “women’s” purely because, yes that is our target audience but I serve a lot of men and don’t see the point of having gender specific clothing)
Tonight I served a lovely guy whom I actually served back in December. I remember him because when he came into the store in December I said “can I help you find anything?” and to be honest I thought he was shopping for his wife or something (I know you shouldn’t judge on appearance but he is not in the least effeminate, he was wearing workmen’s gear and boots so It certainly wasn’t my first thought that he may have been shopping for himself). He looked a little nervous and said jokingly “just looking at the moment, I will will let you know if there is anything I want to try on haha”
I simply responded with a laugh myself “hey whatever floats your boat I am happy to help” I realise now he was testing the waters, so to speak, to see if I would be offended, which I wasn’t. A little while later he sheepish approached me and asked if he could try something on. I was a little taken aback purely because I thought he was kidding earlier. Of course I said yes. I got the sense he had never shopped for himself in women’s wear before and I was happy to help. We picked a whole outfit and just by looking at him I knew his size (you get an eye for it after working in fashion for over a year). It all fit perfectly and he left with a smile and said quitely to me “thank you so much for helping me.” It sticks in my mind so well because I was so touched I could help him and make him feel welcomed and like any other customer, it really didn’t matter to me that he was a man, because as Kurt Hummel says “Fashion has no gender.”
Which brings me back today. I recognised him straight away and approached him with a smile, “Hi! haven’t seen you in months? how are you? ” He couldn’t believe I remembered him. I told him about our sale and let him look around, a little while later he said ” I can’t remember my size…”
"medium" I said without missing a beat…you work in fashion you remember these things lol
He picked out HEAPS of stuff and we tried a few combinations; in fact he went down a size which made him extremely happy. It was so much fun and I noticed how much more comfortable he was this time round. Last time he was very concerned about other people in the store and trying things on in case he offended them, I had said “You won’t offend anyone by trying things on, your a customer and those change rooms are there so you can try things so really feel free to, I don’t mind at all”. This time even with lots of customers in the store he happily took all his items into try even coming out a few times to get a different size or top.
He left with $400 worth of stuff with a smile and said proudly ” Thanks again, I’ll see you next time!”
So why am I telling you all this? Well because sometimes life gets me down, society gets me down. Early this week I got yelled at in my place of work for being ‘wrong’ and ‘you’re going to hell’ because I am Bisexual. It hurt like hell but then tonight I saw this great guy 100% more comfortable in his skin and with who he is and I can’t help but think I helped him get there. People may say who you are is wrong or bad, but it’s not. Who you are is what makes you important to this world.
If I can help even one person see that, just by telling them it is ok to buy whatever clothes they want, then it makes all the bad words that get thrown my way worth it. Because in the end they are just words and they have got nothing on the smile I put on that mans face tonight.
