“Edie Sedgwick Tribute Film”

Tweetable Logline:

Edie is a short film based on characters of the 1960s Warhol Factory, centered on socialite Edie Sedgwick, with a modern look at society.

Elevator Pitch:

Edie is a short film written by Carissa Werner. It is based on characters of the 1960s Warhol Factory, and centered on the iconic socialite Edie Sedgwick, who had an intriguing, but tragically short life. We will also delve into the lost and forgotten characters whose lives are forever intertwined with that of Edie and Andy Warhol. Andy Warhol, the famous king of “Pop Art.” made several statements which showed his foresight about the way the media (and the internet) would become so pervasive in our lives today. Thus the film also takes a modern look at society and technology.

About the Production:

“I first became motivated to write my film, “Edie,” after watching the movie, “Factory Girl,” based on Edie Sedgwick’s life. After watching this movie, I became VERY interested in Edie Sedgwick and the 60’s and 70’s era. The movie “Factory Girl” did a good job at explaining Edie’s time in Warhol’s Factory, but it however, did not cover much of her life after that. Thus, my film will capture that unique part of her life. I will also add a modern day spin on our society today, particularly involving technology, youth, gay pride, and the hippie movement.” — Carissa Werner
