Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress; at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

"Avery, Offline"

Tweetable Logline:

A short comedy about a blogger with an allergy to the Internet.


Elevator Pitch:

After her boyfriend proposes to her over g-chat, blogger Avery Kirk diagnoses herself with an "allergy" to the Internet. "Avery, Offline" follows Avery's odyssey through Brooklyn as she tries to navigate her first day offline.

By investing in "Avery, Offline," you can become part of a film that speaks to issues of our generation: How reliant on the Internet have we become? How has social networking changed our personal relationships? What are the challenges of trying to "unplug"?

We are passionate about this story and feel confident that we can create a beautiful, funny, original film with your help.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Rachel Whitaker
Producer: Jonathan Parks-Ramage
Producer: Heath Brandon
Director of Photography: Zach Kuperstein
Editors: Eric Rothman, Rachel Whitaker

About the Production:

"Avery, Offline" started with my interest in how the Internet is changing the way we think and behave, how it's changing the field of journalism, and how someone might participate in modern life without ever being online (a personal fantasy of mine, as someone who works in front of computers all day). I decided to write this fantasy into a film. It started as a feature, but since I'm a first-time director and lover of independent film, I adapted it into a short so that I could reasonably make it myself. -- Rachel Whitaker


Current Status:

Post-production.
