About

The Film

Maria Burns doesn’t know she’s been entered to win Miss Psychorama 1986, but she’s about to find out. Nevermind the grand prize (a walk-on role in a famous horror director’s movie, $40,000, and a lifetime supply of fake blood), she’s more concerned by the strange men that keep intruding into her house and pointing cameras at her. She better keep the kitchen knife handy...

Miss Psychorama 1986 is a run and gun dark comedy in a Saturday night TV special format, complete with 80's style parody commercials for products like "Barbara", the feminine pad, and a 1-800 Love Line.

The Crew

Jenny Plante is our writer, director, and all around leader for this project.  We've put together a really great crew including cinematographers Darren Cole and Anisa Hosseinnezhad and assistant director Samantha Corsini. Each is an accomplished filmmaker in their own right and we are thrilled to have them aboard! Jenny met each of them while getting her Masters Degree at Massachusetts College of Art Design in 2015.

The Cast

We are thrilled to have the talented and hilarious Mrs. Kasha Davis from Season 7 of RuPaul's Drag Race playing the role of producer Tangyna. Punk rocker and all around bad ass Shema Rubdi will be playing the titular character Miss Psychorama 1986. The charming and whip smart Bunny Wonderland will be playing our hostess National Velvet, and the multi-talented Li Monade will be playing Bobby, assistant to the stars.

The Budget

We need this funding for just about everything! Most importantly we would like to pay each and every contributor to the project. A large majority of this film will be made up of women working behind the scenes to make this film happen.

 

Risks and challenges

It takes a village to make a movie, and we know coordinating everyone involved is a challenge. Luckily our director has an incredible passion for this project, as well as ten years experience self-funding and producing her own films. Everyone on our team is excited and motivated to execute her vision, and we can't wait to share the experience with you all!

With filmmaking, anything and everything that can go wrong likely will so one most always be prepared to roll with the punches. This is a multi layered project incorporating fake commercials, fake film retrospectives, still photography and the main shoot, so filming alone will take several days over the course of a few months. Post production will likely take a few months as each component--color, sound, edit, music and credits has several layers. This is both the pain and joy of filmmaking!
