“Stones We Throw” 

Tweetable Logline: Young budding comedian, Carolina Davis, tries to balance the stress of her family life and her personal life while attending college

Elevator Pitch: Think Lena Dunham meets Jerry Seinfeld meets awkward family life that keeps evolving. Our film showcases a lot of unique voices that are often not represented in our media such as mental illness, LGBTQA rights, women’s rights and alternative family structures. It follows the story of a female comedian who is struggling with her identity and her long distanced relationship while she attends college and is a coming of age tale that will hopefully leave you feeling either inspired or really uncomfortable…we hope both.

About the Production: This film encompasses a lot of experiences I’ve had as a female comedian in college and I’ve written a lot of the film based off of my own life. Completing this film as my first feature movie would be a dream I would like to have realized. There are a lot of barriers keeping female directors out of these types of roles and I would like to have the opportunity to push back against those statistics by completing this film.

Current Status: Post-production.
