Tweetable Logline: Six teens on the precipice of adulthood. A daring mix of fiction & documentary.
Chris Brown – Director
Kalyanee Mam – Producer
About the film: I began making “The Other Kids” because I wanted to know what it’s really like to be a small-town teen in 2014. As viewers, we’ve grown so accustomed to Hollywood’s cartoonish version of high school that we’ve become detached not only from the memories of our own experiences, but from any awareness of the challenges and struggles that teens face today. It was crucial for me that “The Other Kids” be uncensored and unfiltered by my over-30 sensibility; all of the actors in “The Other Kids” are real teenagers who constructed vivid alter-egos to tell their own gripping, personal stories.
Current Status: We’re currently in the middle of an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for post-production.
