It will star two of her favorite collaborators, Sonya Salomaa and Michael Cram. The award-winning writer and short film director is hoping to raise $75,000 from her backers, who will receive exclusive perks such as movie memorabilia, visits to the set, and meet and greets with the cast. She is also offering a 15 minute one-on-one Skype session with a generous backer. This campaign will launch on October 19, during her live StageIt show, and it will last for 35 days. "We are holding the Indiegogo campaign on October 19 for a month, and we are set to shoot the film in June of 2015. We are just putting the whole film together right now. We have a lot of fun perks and it's going to be super-fun," she said. "It's definitely a heartfelt comedy with a lot of adult content in it. The Space Between
is a comedy, but not a family movie for young kids."
On her inspiration to write this film, she said, "It was inspired off of my first film, Bent
, although it was a departure from Bent
. I made a story about a woman who took her husband's infertility into her own hands. The opening of the movie in The Space Between
is discovering that the child that he thought was his, was not, and it involves the quest to find the real father, and forgiveness, and to figure out his life."
Her ﬁrst short ﬁlm, Bent
, won the Jury Award at the Toronto Independent Film Festival and the Audience Choice Award at the Women in Film and Television-Toronto short ﬁlm showcase.
For Johnson, motherhood is her greatest motivation in life. "I am just really happy in writing and directing, and I have a lot of energy towards creating these films. I am really excited about them," she said. "I am really focusing on writing and directing and I am steering my career in that direction."
Johnson has already earned followers worldwide thanks to her portrayal of Kimberly, the original Pink Ranger, on The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
After the critical success of her album Never Broken
, Johnson noted that perhaps down the road she may be recording another musical project.
She defined the word success as "balance." "It's that feeling on top of everything that you only get glimpses of now and then. It's that little icing on the cake. When I get those moments, that's success," she said.
