About this project

"Sell bras or die."     Business or Pleasure opens with Rebekah, a college-aged art student who inexplicably finds herself selling bras in a competitive corporate atmosphere - for love, not money.  After looking for love in all the wrong places, she meets Julia -- the manager of the world’s most glamorous lingerie store -- while bra shopping with her mother.  Rebekah falls for Julia after a single bra-fitting, and gives up a recent promotion at an art gallery to sell bras for Julia (who’s older and married to a man) in the impractical hope that working for Julia will bring them together romantically.

Business or Pleasure tells the story of discovering love and giving up almost everything to pursue it.  Its premise sounds so impossible -- pursuing love at a lingerie store -- but it was very real to me when I lived it during college.  The war-wounds of love and lace inspired me to move to Hollywood to make a movie about my experience.

This 30 min film will be used to market the project for two different opportunities for further development -- it plays as a pilot episode for a TV show and at the same time is the 1st Act of a feature film.  The feature-length screenplay is finished in its entirety as is the multi-series arc for a TV show. 

Because this story is so personal I have always wanted to bring it to life through my own vision.  I’m draining my own savings account to bring an untold, yet universal story of first love and belonging in the hopes that those themes will resonate with many others.  To bring this story to life in its truest form, I need your help.  Your generosity is appreciated and will not be in vain -- as the final product will be used to bring this to a wider audience.  The funds raised will go to prop rentals, lighting equipment, meals on set, and of course, BRAS!  Thank you!
