Auditions in NYC for “Biography” Short Film Project



Location: Local New York, NY

Type: Film

“Biography” is a short film that shed’s a spotlight on everyday issues within our community. In short, the film is about a high school student that has the potential and tools to be extremely successful; but is hindered by his own actions to follow his peers. He finds temporary satisfaction in his ability to “fit in.” However, one day he’s inspired by another student to find his identity and follow his dreams. The film outlines how he later finds comfort and peace, and as a result, actually inspires other students to do the same. The overall message is to promote the idea of individuality and creativity. The youth are our future, and we believe that this film will empower them in ways that we cannot imagine.
