THE OVERVIEW:

"Barbie Boy" is a coming of age tale of Bobby, a playful, imaginative 7-year-old boy whose favorite toy is the classic "Barbie" doll. After his father makes an off-hand comment about how dolls are for girls, Bobby goes off on a personal journey to discover what on earth he SHOULD be playing with and ultimately must choose between being what people think he should be or being the person he knows he is.

WHAT WE NEED:

"Barbie Boy" needs financing in order to obtain equipment, locations and personnel that is essential to make the film as high quality as possible.  

Please help us so that we can afford to rent the Red One Camera and pay our wonderful cast and crew!

Thank you!
