About this project

GIRL CLOWN the feature film is based on the award-winning short film of the same name, written by me, filmmaker/actress Crystal Scott. GIRL CLOWN short film had a successful 13 film festival run, won awards including "Best Narrative Short" and "Best Actress", was an "Official Selection" of Gaiam/Stephen Simon's Cinema Circle "DVD of the Month", and was picked up for distribution by IndieFlix,. You can watch GIRL CLOWN the short film here: https://vimeo.com/6319456

People who have seen the short film always ask me "What happens to  to the main characters?" and "Are you going to make it into a feature film?" And so I started writing the feature version, the movie really just started writing itself. The characters are so rich and interesting, and it's going to make a great feature film.

GIRL CLOWN the feature film is the story of Laura, a mousy waitress who lives at home and spends her life supporting her narcissistic mother. Laura really has no life of her own so she makes up for it by having a very vivid imaginary world in her head.

One day, Laura loses her waitressing job, and finds herself taking a job as a clown. So we see very shy Laura entering into the crazy and colorful world of clowns, and eventually meeting a handsome clown, who she has a crush on, who also happens to be shy. It's a funny, charming and quirky story of two shy people who feel much more comfortable in their costumes than out of them.

Risks and challenges
