About the project

The first draft of Charlotte was written 3 years ago.  After over a year of auditioning we've finally locked our cast.  I'm so passionate about this story and setting the film in my hometown, Baltimore.  As an African American woman, it's important for me to not only give unheard characters a voice but also to tell stories that provoke dialogue. 

Synopsis

Alex and her friend Charlotte are inseparable.  When Charlotte wants to play house, Alex innocently plays along and develops feelings she doesn't understand.  

Schedule
Friday, March 28, 2014 to Tuesday, April 1, 2014
Distribution plan

Upon completion, the film will be packaged and submitted to festivals in the domestic and international markets. Once the festival circuit is complet we'll seek distribution on platforms like Tugg, PUMit, and Netflix.

Amount you want to raise on Seed&Spark:
11 000
Log Line
A drama about those moments of childhood that never leave us.
