Project of the Day: 'Pretty Boy'

“Pretty Boy”

Tweetable Logline:
Sean is taken to a motel and is given a prostitute for his 18th birthday
by his father. He must sleep with her to “fix” his homosexuality.

Elevator Pitch: Pretty Boy is a coming of age story of a young bullied teen, Sean,
struggling with his sexuality and the hardships of high school. After
his father finds some questionable magazines in his room, this devout
Christian will go to any lengths to get his son to find the light and
“perform” the way a man should. Sean is introduced to Katie, a
prostitute that understands the stigmas of modern society and helps him
see the true light that is within him. “Pretty Boy” is about confidence,
finding an inner strength, and being who you are meant to be.

About the Production: About 2 years ago I wanted to write a story that would help one kid that
was being bullied, didn’t fit in, and trying to find themselves. Today,
2 years later, I am confident that “Pretty Boy” will not only help that
one kid, but so many more. We are excited to make this film. Create a
movement. A MOVIE-MENT!
