‘PleasureDora’ Needs a Boost

Mark Prebble (DEGANZ) and the PleasureDora team are crowdfunding $10,000 to finish post-production on the short film.

The film questions meaningful connection in the age of AI and machine learning with the titular PleasureDora, a glitchy sex bot at the end of her shelf life. In her final service with lonely customer Colin, both man and robot confront mortality, their desire to reach their full potential, and authentic connection.

So far, the team has shot and edited the short. With this final stretch of funding, they will be able to finish the last stages of post-production to make the film as cinematic as possible. They plan to dedicate the funds to colour grading, visual effects, sound design, and music composition.

They’ll also use the remaining budget to work with Festival Formula to devise a festival strategy and to cover a few festival submission fees.
