Film Background

We would like to first interview for a lead, or collaborator. Based on this interview we will be able to judge our actresses skills and personalities as individuals who are willing to step outside of themselves to make a movie of a genuine curiosity at the world in which they inhabit. Then we will attempt to workshop scenarios to which a selected number of girls will be able to collaborate. These scenarios are short scenes, hopefully no more than a minute and a half long, that showcase instances where the reality of these girls' lives becomes entangled with the tricky business that is social technology. And finally, we will shoot the scenes which have been written.
