Thanks to your votes, the story of a woman who moves back in with her suburban Mom and Dad, “Oh, Liza” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest.
Congratulations to “Oh, Liza” and director Ellie Heyman. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Here’s what the project’s about:
“Oh, Liza” is a webseries about a girl who pulls the emergency brake on her life in hopes of moving back home with Mom and Dad. Arriving in suburban New Jersey, Liza discovers that her parents have rented her childhood bedroom to a stranger, a dude in his twenties, also trying to figure it out. Navigating this bizarre living situation, reconnecting with old friends while avoiding others and rethinking what it means to call yourself an adult are among the hazards of suburbia in this charmingly uncomfortable new series about the consequences of trying to press pause on your life.
