Project of the Day: Three Women Leave Their Lives Behind to Build a Sailboat

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.

"June, Adrift"

Tweetable Logline:

Three women in their 20s impulsively flee dispiriting lives to build a sailboat in rural Maryland

Elevator Pitch:

Dramatic comedy that centers around Emma, wasting her talent as a sound designer by working as a Foley artist for porn films. After a series of humiliating encounters, she learns the the world anticipates her inevitable downfall. Emma makes the impulsive decision to return to her parents' uninhabited home to tackle the boat kit she failed completing years ago, wanting to prove she is capable of seeing something through. As her enthusiasm for the project snowballs, she inadvertently collects traveling companions, Liesl and Rachel, each struggling with their own crises. They discover boat building presents a new set of challenges.

Production Team:

-Ellie Fenton, Cinematographer (Her feature "Zero Charisma" won the "Audience Choice" award at the 2013 SxSW Film Festival)
-Adrienne Garcia-Subia, Director
-Christine Moore, Writer/Actor (2 Broke Girls)
-Amanda McCann, Writer/Actor
-Cassie Ramoska, Writer/Actor (The Colbert Report)

About the Production:

We (Moore, McCann, and Ramoska) have each written, produced, and starred in our own short films in the past but wanted to collaborate on what we really wanted to make, a feature film with a female heavy crew and cast. We wrote the script around the theme we've been struggling through in our 20s, finding your passion and being unable to see it realized while the generations above us see as society's losers, oafs, and loafers.

    oh, I'm in. Just because of the Boston tee shirt in the bathtub, if for nothing else--laughing--

    Seriously, this has tons of potential. I'll look forward to seeing it! And I'll be sketching mural ideas tomorrow :-)

    A film (or script at this point) that transcends gender and generation.
