Logline: “The Kids” is an unprecedented, all-access documentary about the inside story of the kids who inspired Larry Clark’s 1995 cult classic film “Kids.”
Elevator Pitch: In the early 1990’s, on the cusp of New York City’s mass gentrification, a group of disparate youth ventured outside their broken homes and cultivated a new style of skateboarding inspired by the city’s hardscrabble streets. They found family and spawned an underground cultural revolution, ultimately inspiring Larry Clark’s groundbreaking “Kids.” The crew became overnight international commodities, thrust into the mainstream spotlight. Under the bright lights, some discovered transcendent careers – while others, unequipped to handle hyperbolic fame, suffered fatal consequences, their friends left mourning their untimely deaths. Now, the kids from “Kids” tell their story from the inside out.

Current Status: We are currently in pre-production and fundraising on Kickstarter to bring us to the next stage of production.
