"'Jamie's Girl' displays a surreal mood as the ballerina subtly emerges as a spirit confined by a possesive eerie presence challenging reality and generating an abrupt shift of mood."
-- Vlad Dorofte, BELIFF
This film follows a classic "Be Careful What You Wish For" fairytale style with a heightened visual style reminiscent of "Pan's Labyrinth". It emerged from a collaboration with Cecyl Caban, Producer, for her MFA thesis. She presented me a script by Brooklyn Alexander about a warped and malicious imaginary friend who takes revenge on his creator for abandoning him to other boys. This film is barely recognizable when placed up against its original source material but the basic themes of childish innocence and the naive lack of awareness of consequence translates directly into the main idea found in Jamie's Girl.
