8 Sided Films to Produce LGBTQ Fairy Tale
Award-winning writer/director Tennyson E. Stead to Helm A Changeling Love Story
By: 8 Sided Films
“There's something about love that is magical in itself, and getting the chance to show the beauty, the joy, and the pain in a story this epic - I couldn't walk past that,” Hulme explains. “It's never been easy to find an amazing love story between two women that isn't, at heart, about the tragedy or the discovery and not the magic. I've always wanted to be able to bring that not just to the LGBTQ community but to the wider world - and this is the chance I've been waiting for.” As the film’s writer and director, Stead explains his own reasons for Changeling: “Being honest, the fantasy came from my own desire to explore my relationship with love. As far as the choice to make this a lesbian love story, the most admirable qualities of these two characters all felt so feminine to me! Making them a straight couple would be an extremely awkward choice, so thank goodness we’re independent!"
Tennyson E. Stead is the award-winning writer/director of upcoming 8 Sided Films sci-fi caper Quantum Theory, as well as the recently announced dramatic science-fiction feature Man and Machine. Malise Angie Hulme is co-producing both Quantum Theory and Man and Machine with 8 Sided Films, and writes on LGBTQ culture for MsintheBiz.com. 8 Sided Films is a repertory film company that produces genre features and transmedia content with a commitment to classical performance values.
