Stuck in her dad’s boring lunch meeting, little Ella suddenly discovers the curious case of all the mustaches.
Wishful Whiskers is an original short film written and directed by Pulkit Datta and produced by Russell Sheaffer. While tagging along on her dad’s business lunch, five-year-old Ella becomes fascinated with all the strange mustaches. Why doesn’t she have one too?
Wishful Whiskers is a playful, surreal short film that grapples with gender and growing up in a way that will speak to kids young and old.
We shot the film over three days at the beautiful Cantina restaurant in Harlem, New York, with an amazing cast and crew! The footage looks great and we’re in our post-production process, getting the film ready in time for the film festival circuit in spring 2017. But we need your help to get us to the finish line!
We’ve already raised over $14,000! We need to raise another $1,500 to cover music composition and post production, as well as submission fees to festivals. You can also be listed as a producer on our film, depending on the level of contribution. So far, we have:
(3) Executive Producers
(20) Associate Producers
and several more people who have been very generous.
