About the Film: “Ms. Guidance” is a show about theater. It’s a show about actors and the people who love them. As a kid, every young actor holds up their bottle of shampoo in front of the bathroom mirror, pretending it’s an Oscar and gives a speech. But what happens as you grow up and realize that your dreams, everything you have worked so hard for, may have always just been that — just dreams. “Ms. Guidance” tackles what happens when an artist’s fantasy life smashes face first into reality. How do you pick up the pieces and build yourself a new dream?
Current Status: We have shot three 20 minute episodes of a planned six episode season and have launched a Kickstarter to raise funding to complete it.
