Singleton, who is currently in post-production having directed an episode of the upcoming FOX drama series “Empire,”met Kush while the fledgling director was writing the pilot for a scripted television series entitled “Solomon,”
“We need more stories about women,”Kush says, “and I think women want to see more stories about themselves that reflect their intelligence and depth without sacrificing things like sexuality and vulnerability.”
Kush is on a mission to raise $100,000 (with a stretch goal of $200,000) towards the production of “As The Freak Takes You.” Being presented as “the sexiest crowd fund campaign on the internet,” his Indiegogo campaign offers a variety of unconventional rewards as incentives to donors including custom tailored leather jackets, love and relationship coaching from leading experts, one-on-one acting consultations with Hollywood casting directors and dance lessons with a renowned choreographer.
Thus far, the Indigogo campaign, which launched November 24th, has garnered the support of Woodie King, Jr.’s New Federal Theatre, IndieNight Film Fest in Hollywood, HTV/Illuminate, Skywalker Sound, Michelle Materre of Creatively Speaking, Michelle Manning of MM Productions and From the Heart Productions.
