What Is It? From Carmilla series alums, Natasha Negovanlis, Annie Briggs and Dillion Taylor, CLAIREvoyant is follows Ruby (Briggs) and Claire (Negovanlis) as they figure out what the fook to do with their lives after waking up below an overpass after spending the last of their monies after celebrating Claire's 25th birthday. So what's next? Well a get rich scheme, naturally and thanks to Ruby's brilliance the girls decide to scam people by becoming online psychics and becoming, drumroll please, The Seer Sisters! So while it's all fun and games, Claire finds out she is in fact psychic throwing both girls into a spiral of events where they learn more about themselves, their friendship and more.
From the trailer alone we already know this series breaks the Bechdel Test as our series leads are the pure embodiment of being women. The series describes their leads as, "relatable leads that are body positive, sex positive and unafraid to be themselves," and with Negovanlis and Briggs as co-writers, we have no doubt that the series is exactly that.
If the series sounds familiar, that's because it was recently selected as one of the recipients of the Independent Production Fund (IPF) and while the IPF does provide some funds, it doesn't cover all of the costs and that's where you lovely fans come in. The series is also working in conjunction with Smokebomb Entertainment and if you're still not convinced, check out the series' campaign video and page for more information!
How Can I Help? The series is looking to raise $25,000 USD in month and after their campaign launched earlier this week, the series has already raised over 50% of their goal putting them at 13,626 USD from 227 backers!
What Do I Get? I can imagine that Claire would say something about karma at this point but hey, your money gets you some kickass perks like the ones below with even more on their campaign page.
