Fund Shine Louise Houston’s SNAPSHOT, an erotic suspense thriller staring queer women of color

SNAPSHOT by Shine Louise Houston Queer Women of Color in Porn

Queer Black filmmaker Shine Louise Houston of Pink & White Productions (CrashPadSeries.com, PinkLabel.tv) has launched a crowdfunding campaign to produce SNAPSHOT, an erotic “porn noir” suspense thriller staring women of color.

SNAPSHOT is Houston’s fifth feature, but it will be the very first to be produced through crowdfunding. The move gives Houston creative control necessary for diverse casting and the ability to work without a deadline for a polished final product. Houston’s pornographic aesthetics draw heavily from Radley Metzger. As a queer love story, the film doesn’t shy away from portraying explicit sexuality, a key element of her storytelling. Pink & White Productions films show the mechanics of intimate sexuality, and uncensored portrayals of genuine pleasure, which the company is best known for.

SNAPSHOT is also a coming out story. “Growing up queer, I was always frustrated with the coming out stories I was hearing and seeing,” said Houston. “There were so few queers of color, the representations’ idea of ‘sexy’ wasn’t mine, narratives were formulaic and stereotypical, and the production quality left a lot to be desired. SNAPSHOT is an attempt to provide a different coming out narrative in a tone that reflects some of my most profound filmic influences.”

Campaign backers can look forward to perks such as gift certificates from Good Vibrations and hand-blown glass sex toys from Fucking Sculptures. The company invites supporters to celebrate Pink & White’s 10th Anniversary Party on August 7th at the Center for Sex and Culture. Other rewards include film cameos, photography books with images from production, and producer acknowledgement in the film credits.

Houston’s campaign is supported by community leaders, fellow filmmakers, and experts in Black and queer studies: Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, author of A Taste For Black Sugar: Black Women in Pornography, iconic Black lesbian filmmaker Cheryl Dunye, pornographer, educator and trans activist Tobi Hill-Meyer, Nenna Joiner, filmmaker and owner of Oakland adult boutique, Feelmore510, and Madeleine Lim, Executive Director of the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project.
