Project Highlight: The Naked Truth About Fairies


"The Naked Truth About Fairies"
1st Place Short Comedy Film at The 2015 Indie Gathering

About the film: When your fairy godmother has ADD, be careful what you wish for.


Q: If there was just one thing you wanted audiences to know about your film, what would it be?

A: It's a film about making mistakes. The characters in Fairies have good and messed up their lives and it's in the messiness that they'll start to figure out what they really value.

Q: Can you share a fun fact/trivia about the making of your film?

A: We had a mafia extortion moment during production. We filmed at a hookah bar in Astoria, offered to us for free because it was good for the business. Once we had everything set up and were shooting, the owner showed up with his heavies and was ready to talk costs for space rental. So that was a learning experience.

Q: What makes your project unique, and why should audiences see this film?

A: The reception for this film has been surprising. The audiences you think are your target nod and say, okay. People you never expected to be your audience? They love it. There has been so much enthusiasm from unexpected directions, that I've learned you've just got to make the story you want to tell and let people decide for themselves whether they like it.

Q: Do you have any upcoming screenings, or is your film available for purchase or online viewing?

A: We have no screenings planned at the moment. We will continue to enter the film in festivals for a little longer and see how far it goes. Until this cycle is done, it will be screened at festivals only.
