Angela Tucker (creator of the awesome Black Folk Don’t web series previously featured on this blog, as well as producer of Yoruba Richen's award-winning new documentary The New Black) is putting on her director hat this time around to helm a short film titled Just The Three Of Us, which center on a couple in their 70s who decide to spice up their marriage by putting an ad in Casual Encounters for a threesome.

Angela Tucker (creator of the awesome Black Folk Don’t web series previously featured on this blog, as well as producer of Yoruba Richen's award-winning new documentary The New Black) is putting on her director hat this time around to helm a short film titled Just The Three Of Us, which center on a couple in their 70s who decide to spice up their marriage by putting an ad in Casual Encounters for a threesome. 

But it's not all jokes, as you might immediately think based on that description, because, as Angela says, the film is both funny and sad. 

She's already shored-up her starring trio, which should impress: Tony and Emmy Award winner Leslie Uggams, Bill Raymond and Tony Award winner, Roger Robinson.

To help fund the project, Tucker launched a Kickstarter campaign just under a month ago, to raise $8,000, and with just 4 days to go in the campaign, she needs an additional $1500 to reach her goal (she's raised $6500 thus far). 

I fully expect that there are enough of us who appreciate the work Angela has done in the past and continues to do, that coming up with an additional $1500 in the next 4 days shouldn't be a problem. These are the kinds of crowdfunding campaigns that really could use our help folks, not those *other* ones. Ahem! 

So chip in, if you can. I will!

Angela says that the film is part of the larger IFP Emerging Storytellers feature project, and she plans to submit the short to festivals in 2014.
