Not Another Pretty Face follows Donna, a beautiful model, aspiring actress, and recent college grad on the hunt for positive female roles in film. Disregarding the pressures from her family to pursue a secure career, she flounders between casting calls and rejections in roles that either objectify her or don’t suit her “type”. Donna becomes a vehicle to examine gender inequality in front and behind the camera. Through her we confront misogyny during production and in private affairs. This is a feminist film for everyone. Eventually, Donna accidentally auditions for a psychologically complex male role and leaves such an impression on the producers that they change the role to a woman and cast her.
Through visual imagery, dialogue, and character we will create a film that empowers women and men and serves as an example to production companies on the proper way to think. Satire is the perfect method of examining and making fun of the current traditions in Hollywood. From satirically objectifying men, to fantasy scenes breaking various gender roles, to exploring the modeling and acting industries; Not Another Pretty Face will make you think and entertain you.
Our ethos in the creation of this film is that we will not stand idly by as women are oppressed in any fashion, as filmmakers we will offer everything we have and know to push for equality. Film sets should be safe havens for all involved.
I want my film to get made. I want our message to be heard. And I need all the support I can get.
