Rosie, Oh is loosely based off of the former eclectic home life that Apple grew up in before the age of 11. Growing up in many different dodgy neighborhoods around Miami, Apple was often left without any adults watching her, but she had her plethora of dogs roaming around with her outside. The dog that Apple was closest to, Rosie, was an outdoor dog that never had a leash. She didn’t need one. Sure she would run around the neighborhood and get into trouble, but she always came home because she was street smart and loyal. Rosie always chased away anyone who she thought was dangerous to Apple while she was hanging around outside or exploring questionable areas unsupervised.

When Apple initially presented Andy with the script, he wanted to quickly produce it as a short side project. However, he realized that this was a script that could be transformed into an experimental and high quality piece if the proper time and resources were invested into it. So he decided to create the film as his Senior Thesis project at SCAD. Andy is known for taking on ambitious projects, and although the script is petite, Andy is approaching it as an experiential piece where the viewer travels through this moment in one shot.

The story reflects a life similar to the one that Apple grew up in as a child. The movie has three main characters:

Amber - An outgoing little girl who isn’t afraid to speak her mind. She’s independent but fairly naive. We see Amber mature while we travel with her through the events of the film.

Magdalena - The neighbor, Magdalena, is based off of a secret mysterious and elegant life Apple imagined her dysfunctional mother having once lived. As a small child, Apple spent many hours looking at her mother’s hoarded costume jewelry, expired drug store makeup collections, and dumpster found lingerie dresses while she was left home alone. 

Irene - Amber’s mother who, despite her aggressive traits, is well meaning towards Amber but often times neglectful as a parent.

Instead of shooting it in Apple’s hometown in Miami, she and Andy are taking advantage of the fact that they are already in Savannah, Georgia, a city with many locations that have the rugged character fit for the setting of the film.

Rosie, Oh is set to take place in the late fall of 2001 in a rugged lower income neighborhood. The story is told as an experience, so to properly depict its essence, key aspects of the story must be brought to life. Those key aspects are the interior set design to dress the space, meticulously planned costume design, miscellaneous props, and most importantly, a house that will facilitate not only the story, but the logistics needed to successfully shoot the film in one shot. 

Budget: 

Production Design - $800 

Locations - $700 

Distribution - $600 

Talent - $500 

Gear - $500 

Catering - $500 

Postproduction - $500 

Transportation - $400

Total - $4500 

Rosie, Oh already has a full crew of 30+ ambitious art students who all bring their own creative perspectives to the table. The story allows for these artists to have freedom to experiment with their specific crafts, which is truly exciting for everyone. Without the crew, Rosie, Oh wouldn’t be the kind of piece that everybody is anticipating it to be. Needless to say, teamwork is a spectacular thing.

Ultimately, this is the last project that Apple and Andy will be collaborating on before they embark into the real world. Please take a look at the incentives and consider donating to their petite film. 

Forever gratitude, The Rosie, Oh Film Crew.
