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.
