Me in My Own Eyes (2021)

feature | musical / comedy

Logline: A friendless musical prodigy seeks social success through securing a spot on a world-class music stage, but when her pursuit of popularity jeopardises this dream, she must unite a divided school using the universal language of music to save her reputation.

In pre-production; funding proposal and budget approved. Joint collaboration with OCU Films &  MSMF in order to promote positivity, acceptance and diversity.

This film is a passion project dedicated to raising positive mental health awareness and fighting stigma while celebrating the empowering magic of music - the universal language that can unite even the most diverse groups.

Surely is we are all truly human, we must share more beyond bleeding red and breathing O2.

Once upon a time, there was this cliqueless oddball who was fated to be cliqueless...maybe that's because she got rid of cliques once and for all!

Just fidget.

This is my own personal acting doctrine.

     Probably the most counterintuitive thing you'll ever hear. Fidgeting on stage? Playing with your hair while saying your lines? Biting your lip and chewing your nails when the camera is two inches from your face?

     Yes, precisely.

     Real people fidget, twirl a lock of hair around their fingers, bite their nails, and pick their noses. So real characters should, too. Unless your role is Marie Antoinette, there's no reason for you to portray your character as perfect and flawless. And even surely the queen of Louis XVI had her not-so-flawless moments. After all, humans aren't perfect.
