Crew needed for filming Aug 10 – 19th (Exact dates TBA Wed Aug 8th)

GFProductions

I am a screenwriter from Portland that has come here to Leesburg, VA to shoot an indie film with my friend. This is a Non-Sag film. There will be no pay. You will receive credit in the movie, food and drink on set, a link to the finished film, and a copy of the DVD if we go that route.

Theme: Loving yourself for who you are, and not what others want you to be.

This movie follows Sarah as she learns what true beauty looks like by finding the beauty within herself, and by learning to love herself for who she is she is allowing others the ability to love her too.

Sarah is a single lady who is insecure with herself. She tries desperately to fit into what she believes the social norm of being pretty looks like so that she can get a boyfriend. Her idea of beauty is wearing expensive clothes and slathering on her makeup. She feels she is keeping up with a model’s look until one day she over hears people making fun and how sad it is that someone her size tries to look like them (beautiful girls). Her friends try to cheer her up by taking her clothing shopping (one of her favorite past times), but when she has trouble finding clothes that look good and fit she decides to go on a diet.

You will find the extremes Sarah goes through to look prettier and lose weight are things you have tried and done before making this movie realistic. The fact that women, and men, deal with the issue of weight and acceptance everyday makes this movie’s theme all that more important for our times.
