LG-BD-BDE is a comedy about a 10 year old bat-wielding tomboy named Sydney, that enlists an evil demon as her surrogate father for Bring Your Dad to School Day.
When the fatherless, anarchy loving Sydney is confronted with Bring Your Dad to School Day, the spirit of her dead parakeet, "Mr.Cuddles", comes back in the form of a demonic father. But instead of guidance, he only nurtures her deeper into anarchy.
Opposing the anarchic duo, is her school bully/rival Calinda who gloats about her own cop Dad, Mullins. Mullins is a loving but overprotective father, his biggest fault being that he has never told Calinda she's adopted, despite the fact that she's black and he's white. As Calinda and Mullins clash with the anarchic duo, Mullins struggles to handle the adoption situation, but he can't seem to stop strange cat whiskers from sprouting off his face...
When Sydney arrives with Mr. Cuddles in tow to Bring Your Dad to School Day, all hell breaks loose between the two father-daughter duos. As Mr. Cuddles becomes more and more violent, Sydney finds her Best Day Ever spinning horribly out of control.
I wanted to tell a story about the perceptions of what it means to be/have a Father. Both the Father and Daughters of this story have their own ideas about what the "Perfect Dad" entails. When all these different ideas collide, their perceptions shatter, and anarchy erupts.
We'll be submitting to the major festival circuit in the Fall and NO we're not changing the title!
Born and raised in Long Beach, California, Griffin Davis never saw much sun as he spent most of his time inside playing video games and watching anime. Currently living in Manhattan as an NYU film student, Griffin was inspired to create LG-BD-BDE by the amount of garbage that lined the city streets. Fueled by comedy from Adult Swim and themes from his own life, Griffin is embarking on a really weird film about fatherhood. Most recently, Griffin has been an a associate producer and camera operator for "BINDLESTIFFS" a feature film directed by Andrew Edison. The film screened at Slamdance 2012 and received the "Audience Award for Best Feature".
