The story of a freak show star, ready to shave her prized possession. Yet savior may come from the most unlikely source.
The Number One Fan is a short film about Mona, the bearded lady who offers herself as a spectacle for cheering and jeering crowds to ravenously gape. Backstage in her moments alone, she is troubled by three acrobats giggling at her expense. It is in this moment she contemplates the unthinkable and picks up a shaving razor.
about the project.
TNOF is an NYU student film that will be shot on 16mm film. The aesthetic of the film rings true to the time it is set and the gruffness of Mona's world that is littered with hidden gems of beauty.
We will shoot on a weekend in April.
The budget will be directly used for:
- 4-6 rolls of film
- location costs
- hair (specifically beards) and makeup.
- props including fabric, hay and other freakishly terrific circus treasures.
