Kitty’s 9 Lives

Tweetable Logline: Single and eccentric, 30-year-old Kitty imagines life married to nine different men she meets at a BBQ–all with hilarious results!

Elevator Pitch: We are calling “Kitty’s 9″Lives” a semi-romantic comedy. At a BBQ birthday party, happily married Joy introduces her single sister Kitty to nine different men. As we see Kitty imagine life with these guys, her fantasies each come to a screeching halt as Joy tells her about them and their “undesirable” traits. This hilarious whirlwind of a story is part “Bridget Jones Diary,” part “Friends” TV Series and part Zoosk commercial all wrapped up with a little Edgar Wright (“Hot Fuzz,” “Shaun of the Dead”) comedic style thrown in for good measure.

About the film: At its heart, art is an expression. It is supposed to convey beauty, illicit emotions, inspire the soul and reveal glory. Art should bring freedom. Art should liberate it’s creator and captivate it’s audience. The best art comes from an experience. It can be a witness of great truth and affirmation of a things only felt in the deep places of the heart.

Current Status: Fundraising and in pre-production.
