Production Description

Casting "Ma/ddy," a dark, comic short film. Synopsis: "A genderqueer widow carries a child using her wife's egg, creating a family that will forever link her to the love of her life. Skylar Murphy, 35, identifies as a genderqueer butch, generally passes as a dude, and causes some degree of commotion in 90% of women’s restrooms. When her wife Katie is killed in an accident, Skylar inherits her cryopreserved embryos and decides to carry the child that will forever link her to the love of her life. At the core, 'Ma/ddy' is a film about facing grief through enduring love and the obstacles Skylar must overcome to create the family she's always dreamed of."
