About

Logline:

An overweight girl since childhood wanting to be a supermodel singer takes a job at a singing telegram shop in hopes of being discovered.


Meet the Writers:

 Karla Guy is a Comedian/Actress

She loves Making people Laugh. Her first acting gig was a turtle at the age of 5. You can find her performing standup in Los Angeles. You may have seen her on that show back in the day on OXYGEN trying to "Dance her Ass off" to Lose Weight. Well now she "WROTE her ASS off" & is excited to tell the story of her life in a very funny, light-hearted way.


Her co-writer is the Talented and #Funny Kathy Byron 

 Some of Kathy's credits include:  

Kathy plays Karla's hilarious boss Mrs. McGrady.  Kathy's character makes Karla's job a living hell in this film. I'm sure you know a boss or two that makes you regret going to work everyday. Kathy is also Karla's boss in real life ...how's that for art imitating life!

(She's bossy there too!)


What We Need

We are trying to start production on a very tight budget of 

$5,000  

but we hope we raise more!!!

This includes the start of production and budget for locations, food, and cast, etc.


Impact, Risks & Challenges:

*Impact

Social consciousness of bullying and fat shaming told in a comedic, light-hearted way by two female comedians who have had their fair share of life's twists, turns and burns. 


*Challenges???

Keeping Karla away from the crafty table!!!

That's where the actors and crew have snacks while on set folks.    

(and YES I just FAT Shamed myself)


All seriousness we are doing this on our own. 

We need all the help we can.


Ways You Can Help?
