About The Project
37 PROBLEMS Episodes 1, 2, 3 were just accepted to The Austin Film Festival and Brooklyn Web Fest. We’ve filmed 3 episodes and have 7 more to go. Digital content buyers are reading the script and we want to be able to show them a complete series as soon as possible! To that end, we’re launching a crowd-funding campaign to raise funds for the remaining episodes. We hope you’ll join our team!
ABOUT THE SERIES!
37 PROBLEMS is a story very close to my heart – a struggling 37 year-old screenwriter who isn’t married and doesn’t have kids, is all about her career, until she finds out she has one egg left. Suddenly she has to find a guy to fertilize the egg, freeze the egg, or do nothing and live a different life than she imagined. (It’s a comedy!)
A couple years ago, a couple of friends froze their eggs and I wondered if I needed to max out my credit card and do that too? When I asked my gynecologist, she said, “You’re never as young as you are today.” Thanks. And yet, she’s right. I always assumed I’d want kids “some day,” but some day is now. And I’m not doing anything about it. Except making a web series about it.
I wonder if that means I don’t really want kids? I wonder if I could have one on my own even if I did? I wonder if I’m going to run out of time while I’m wondering all of these things?
I know that if I’m asking these questions, other women are too. I want to put our story on screen. To make something real, that’s also really funny. I want to help anyone working to figure this stuff out. To say, you’re not alone, and we can get through this together. It’s important to have a new point of view on motherhood, fertility, and the decisions around bringing new life into the world. Be that a baby or a web series.
When you contribute to 37 PROBLEMS you help bring our “baby” into the world. Thank you. We can do this!
