An r-rated comedy written, directed and produced by women for women; the first feature film in the US to hire a fully-female crew.
HANNAH HAS A HO PHASE is an r-rated comedy written, directed and produced by women for women. In the vein of “Superbad” or “40-Year-Old Virgin” and told from the female perspective, HO-PHASE targets an underserved, niche audience and would be the first feature film in the US to hire a fully-female crew.
The script, written by NYU and USC alum Jamie Jensen, is a witty, heartfelt, laugh-out-loud romp that appeals to male and female audiences alike and has the potential for huge commercial success.
Production costs are being kept to an absolute minimum as times are tough for artists – but we still need some money to keep our hard-working crew fed and our talented cast happy. We shoot in New York City from April 8 to 28 and need meals for 18 long shooting days and vehicles to transport our stars from location to location.
The amazing team of women who are bringing this movie from concept to screen include:
NADIA MUNLA – PRODUCER/DIRECTOR
Hailing from USC’s Peter Stark Program, Nadia is an up and coming independent producer with an expertise in low budget production. HANNAH HAS A HO PHASE will be the first feature for her company, Hourglass Entertainment, which focuses on micro-budget films and webseries.
JAMIE JENSEN – WRITER/DIRECTOR
Jamie developed her voice as a subversive female filmmaker while earning degrees from the country’s top two film schools and working in film and television over the last 7 years. As a New York native, Jamie plans on using her gregarious, loud-mouthed nature to create a truly fun film that everyone over the age of 18 can enjoy.
ALLISON CARTER – PRODUCER
With several NY-based low-budget features under her belt, Allison has produced 4 award winning shorts selected for Screamfest LA, the Los Angeles Shorts Festival, and the Florida Platform Festival as well as the feature film THE TAQWACORES, an official Sundance and SXSW 2010 selection.
ERICA PALGON – CASTING DIRECTOR
With over 15 years of experience, Erica has helped cast a spectrum of comedies from SHORTBUS to MEAN GIRLS and is heavily involved in the improv community in NY.
YUENI ZANDER – DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
An AFI Cinematography fellow who was also awarded the “Women in Film” Scholarship by PricewaterhouseCoopers, Yueni has worked in the camera department on films such as I AM LEGEND and the Coen Brother’s BURN AFTER READING.
RAQUEL CEDAR – PRODUCTION DESIGNER
A graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Raquel has won the California Governors Arts Scholar Award in Film and Writing and has had her films screened at such notable venues as the Imperial Beach, Newport Beach International, and The Other Venice Beach Film Festivals.
ALLISON JACKSON – SOUND MIXER
Allison has worked in the sound department on over 20 features, most notably Daryl Wein’s BREAKING UPWARDS, an official SXSW 2009 Selection.
