                                                      STORY:

     When a washed up beauty queen finds a wretched monster on a Miami nude beach, she decides that becoming the monster’s pageant mom and exploiting it on YouTube will be the quickest way back into the spotlight.

     As promise of online fame drives her towards madness, her daughter and  subservient husband must steal the monster and release it before it dies from overexposure.

DEVELOPMENT

     The script is complete and refined, the cast and crew is assembled, and hair / wardrobe / and makeup have fallen into place and are looking fantastic.

Risks and challenges

If for some reason it does, we will still get the film completed, and you will still get your backer rewards as promised!

We are so honored to have your support, to make this film, to tell this story, and to work with some fantastic talents.
