Project of the Day: Feminism, Farts & Fun in Web Series 'Wildcats'

Tweetable Logline: 

Feminism, Farts, & Fun. We’re proud of our F’s at Wallis Hills High. Watch as Allison struggles to make the grade.

Elevator Pitch:

Allison is a Varsity cheerleader who realizes that some of her school’s traditions are sexist and out-dated. As she takes a confident stand against baking any more brownies for the basketball players, she becomes less and less sure of herself and her sexuality. High School can be hard and that can be hilarious. Also- there’s a dance sequence.
Production Team:
Rachel Puchkoff- Writer/Director
Linnea Sage- Allison/ Protaganist
Sarah Seeds- Cheese/ Captain
Madeline Nehlen- Langer/ Co-Captain
Steve Razzano- Cinematographer
Sean Smith- Second Camera
Barbara Vazconez- AC

About the Production:

“Women are still misrepresented in the Film & Televison industry and continuing to tell women-centric stories (that include Gay and Lesbian characters- especially in a society that has not fully accepted them) is the only way to improve. This is a comedy, but it also highlights the growing pressure on girls to focus more on how they are perceived vs. their substance. A product of that double standard is a seemingly confident young woman paralyzed when it comes to making actual subjective and self-directed decisions. Allison is an example of that girl who is stuck between obligation and opportunity.” — Rachel Puchkoff

Current Status:

In production.
