About

We all know that gymnasts dream BIG, and I am no exception. Making CHALK IT UP is one of the biggest dreams that I have ever had, and I am so excited that you are going to be a part of it!

CHALK IT UP is a family friendly gymnastics film about a girl named Hannah, who overcomes her past to build a very unlikely team of misfit gymnasts at Harvard University. I dreamed up the idea while on the set of STICK IT, and now my dream is coming to life.

As an actress I have been in numerous feature films and television shows and even written, sold and produced successful shorts. These experiences have given me the skills that I need to:

1. Build the right team of people around me to make this film a success. From the writers, to the actors and a director, I have an extremely talented group of people all ready to get started.

2. Make a gymnastics movie that gymnasts will love. As a former UNC Gymnast and competing at the Elite level I know what it takes to BE a gymnast. I guarantee CHALK IT UP will be filled with great gymnastics.

3. Film in the perfect location! International Gymnastics Camp has been extremely generous to offer us the opportunity to film on location at their amazing camp in the beautiful mountains of Stroudsburg, Pennslyvania. I can't imagine a more perfect place to spend a few weeks.

As you can see we've got everything we need to get this film off the ground. except YOU: our Believers. The gymnasts, friends, family and backers who want to be a part of this journey with us. So check out our page, watch our video, read a little bit more about us. We're pretty sure you'll want to join Team CHALK IT UP!

Risks and challenges

Making a film is a huge undertaking, and we know that there will be some bumps along the road, but we're prepared to handle them. One of the first things that we've done is given ourselves a full year to make CHALK IT UP.

From September 2013 to September 2014 we'll complete pre-production (casting, shooting schedules, location scouting), production (actually shooting the film), and post-production (sound, editing, music), and we feel confident that we can get it done.

We also promise to keep you in the loop. Once our campaign is complete, we'll post weekly updates on our Facebook page so you know exactly what's going on. We'll also let you know what hurdles we're facing and the strategies we've put into place to overcome them. Making a movie is a daunting task, but we never shy away from something just because it's difficult.

Come on...we're gymnasts...achieving the impossible is what we do!
