A music journalist spends a week doing a feature article on a tortured agoraphobic rock star.

About this project

Off The Record is a feature length docu-narrative that blends both reality and fantasy. The movie takes a raw and honest look at Alex (ME) a music journalist sent to do an article on Charley (Aimee Allen), a tortured rock star. 

Working for MTV for over a decade, I had the chance to interview and work with some of the worlds biggest rock stars. For years, I had an inside look at their lives and became fascinated. 

When I was in high school, I had dreams of being a famous singer. I would practice my songs in front of my stuffed animals and in 7th grade got the courage to enter the talent contest. I was quickly heckled off stage and I never sang again. The idea of music being the passion that fills your soul, but also the root that destroyed it, was the seed that gave me the idea for OFF THE RECORD.

At the core, Off The Record is a love story between a music journalist and a rock star, but as you venture deeper into the hearts of these two women, you discover that they have both emotionally abandoned their lives.

I feel we are all tortured in some way. Whether we struggle with addiction, weight, low self esteem, love...each of us has a secret that is devastating to our core. It's my hope that as these two characters battle their way to redemption that somehow...in some way...the spectator will over come their own obstacles and journey into the light.

I'm so excited kickstarter has been born into the artistic world. Working with investors is great, but sometimes an artist needs the creative freedom to have a vision and not be controlled by the power of money. I have sincere gratitude for you helping me make my dreams into a reality.
