Project of the Day: 'Nowhere Girl' Explores When a Relationship Becomes Unhealthy

Nowhere Girl”

Tweetable Logline:

A broken-hearted guy meets a girl who turns his life around – he’d be crazy not to fall in love with her.

Elevator Pitch:

Nowhere Girl is a funny
and heartfelt film about how falling in love can be exhilarating but
also a bit crazy. After Tyler meets Katy he finally starts to shake off
the lingering effects of a bad break-up and she inspires him to do more
and be more in life.

At first his friends think this is a wonderful change, but cracks in
this new relationship start to show and some of his friends begin
thinking it’s unhealthy. But just what is “unhealthy” when it comes to a
relationship and just who gets to decide these things?

Production Team:

Director – Jed Rigney (“Fools on the Hill”)
Producers – Justin Workman, Chrystina Myers, Steffanie Siebrand
Exec Producers – Jerrol Lebaron, Adam Beason
Cinematographer – Justin Chin

About the Production:

“I’ve always been drawn to films about bad break-ups because I’ve had
some real butt-kickers myself. (Write what you know!) And I think the
fall-out from these break-ups is fascinating – not just on the “dumpees”
but on their friends and family. And the effects even continue on to
their next relationships.

“The challenge became how do I tell this story in a funny and genuine way
with all of these characters and locations and scenes with just two
weeks of filming available. The answer to that was putting together an
experienced and talented team. And we got it done.” — Jed Rigney
