Window Shopping - A Gay Lust Story
I’m Russell Kohlmann, and I need your help to bring my vision to life. In my film “Window Shopping”, a young, gay man with a lackluster sex life and a vivid imagination imagines a loving relationship with another man in a flash. It asks the question, what harm is there in using your imagination?
Inclusion StatementThis project was written by myself, a gay man, and will be directed by myself and the inimitable Jenn Plotzke, an incredible Wonder Woman. The story also revolves around a gay male relationship. Our Director of Photography is also a woman, Kate Montgomery. I am thrilled to be working with them!
About The Project
I have spent a long time keeping my voice down - both creatively and emotionally - stifling my personal stories from being told. I am now raising it up high to the heavens, and hope that you'll help me in making my vision come to fruition!
A brief history of my creative work...
Back in 2003, my sister and I created a web show before *anyone* else. The next thing I did, creatively, on film, was a short called "Young at Heart" in 2006, in high school, that was well-received. Since then, I've dabbled in short music video style parodies, collaborating with other artists on their projects, and contributing to making their dream projects come true.
I've written a script (as of January 2017) and am looking to get it on digital celluloid as soon as possible. I am telling an intimate slice-of-life story that I think most people can relate to. It's got romance, humor, drama, fashion -- plus, it's about a gay relationship! And it's gonna be super fun. I'm producing, directing, acting in, and editing this magical piece of cinema. Sure, it's a lot of work---but it's worthwhile, and brings me so much joy to do so.
Please help fund this baby! "Window Shopping" is the start of something great.

About This Team
I've assembled a killer crew of folks, from soup to nuts. I'm so thrilled to be surrounding myself with collaborators who enjoy creating unique, new works as much as I do. Our crew is mostly women, especially with my Director of Photography Kate Montgomery and my do-it-all partner Jenn Plotzke (Assoc Producer, Asst Director, Actor).
