This is the story of how Krista, shaken by a recent experience, uses a performance in her theater class to express & work through the paralyzing unease that event brought about.

Production begins July 24th, when we'll be filming with a real high school drama class in their black box theater. Authenticity is key here, and we'll be pushing for raw performances and a real sense of what it feels like to pour yourself out like that, in front of other people.

 

Who's making this thing?

At the helm are Danny and Will Madden (see some of the work we've done below). In the producer's chair we've got the great Kara Durrett, and a familiar face captaining the camera—Lowell Meyer, DP of Frolic 'n Mae. And of course there'll be some other returning Ornana folks on the crew as well.

 

 

 

Thanks for reading!

We hope you'll choose to be a part of this project.

—Danny & Will

 

Risks and challenges

So many favors are at play when you're making something for 2 grand, but we feel strongly that this could be something great and important to communicate, so we'll be working hard to get it all done right.

Completion dates on these low budget things are always a toss-up. We'll be making a post-production schedule as the film takes shape in editing, but we're aiming to get there in the winter.
