So by now we have to assume you’ve heard of the hit web series Carmilla. (If not head to KitschMix.TV to binge watch it ASAP.)
However, what you may not know is the two actresses who star in the vampire series are bringing their chemistry to a feature film.
In Almost Adults, Negovanlis and Bauman play two best friends in their final year of college – transitioning into adulthood.
One is embracing her sexuality and trying to catch up on everything she has missed during her teenage years, the other is ending a long term relationship with her boyfriend and discovers her life isn’t going as planned.
Now, if you’ve been around the queer media block a few times then you’ll be very familiar with the ‘gay girl falls in love with her best straight friend’ trope.
Thankfully this is not that type of film. The stars of The Gay Women Channel – YouTubers, Sarah Rotella and Adrianna DiLonardo – are using their years of experience to put together this movie. So instead, the conflict between the two main characters is due because the two are headed in different directions in their lives.
The film was initially funded by a Kickstarter campaign, and production began in May.
At the recent Buffer Festival in Toronto, a trailer arrived. The trailer has been a hit, gathering more than 250,000 views in its first day online.
The popularity of Carmilla is no doubt raising the hype level for Almost Adults. Carmilla has gathered a devoted following and earned a second season.
