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.


In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

"Teeth"

Tweetable logline: 

Daisy's teeth won't stop growing. But that's the least of her problems.


Elevator Pitch: 

Daisy Brown is a 13 year old girl who has a strange medical condition: her teeth won’t stop growing. Mortified by her illness, she has the dentist file her teeth down to maintain a normal appearance. But despite her best efforts, the word gets out. The school bully is thrilled with this juicy morsel of information and uses it to embarrass Daisy in the most painful act of harassment yet.


Production Team:

Director/Writer - Jennifer Cox
Co-Producer - Alison Week
Co-Producer - Sara Golombeck

About the Production: 

"My teeth are not straight. When I was nineteen, just as I began to accept their crookedness, I wrote a script called Teeth. Many years later, I began to document the lives of teen girls in a project titled 'Teenage Wasteland.' Eventually my own experiences and those of the teen girls in Wasteland sparked the life of Daisy, 'Teeth''s protagonist, leading me to rewrite 'Teeth.' In this new version, I want to talk about bullying and explore how someone else's negative perception of who you are has the very real power to influence and change you and define you.

" -- Jennifer Cox

Current Status: 


Pre-production.
