Pink Rose The Story Pink Rose

Student Council. Young Writers of America. Students Against Destructive Decisions. Pins jingle on the bookbag of overachieving freshman, BELLE. Her newest accomplishment? Class President.

"Little Miss Perfect" is a feature-length drama about a high school freshman whose ambition comes at a cost. The story follows 14-year old Belle, as she discovers an online community that supports eating disorders... and secretly begins starving herself.

Pink Rose The Impact Pink Rose

Our social mission is to empower young girls in transitional points of their lives. We also aim to raise awareness of eating disorders, primarily anorexia, and transform how they are perceived in society. By de-stigmatizing the disorder, those hiding it are encouraged to speak out and seek recovery.

Pink Rose What We Need & What You Get Pink Rose

Thanks to our partnership with New York Women in Film and Televisions, all contributions made to Little Miss Perfect are tax deductable! 

So what do we need?

The production of a film requires many costs. Although we will be receiving this money after principal photography has been completed, we will still have many loans to repay as well as additional costs for post-production, distribution, and marketing.

Production Costs (Lights, Camera, Action!)

  • Equipment Rentals
  • Location Fees - we have rented a beautiful house in Stamford, CT for the first half of our shoot and will be shooting at The College of New Rochelle for the remainder of the time
  • Transportation, food, and lodging for our talented cast and crew
  • Wardrobe, hair, and make-up costs for our already beautiful cast
  • Set decorations and props

Post-Production Costs

  • Editing, color correction, and sound design for the film

Distribution and Marketing Costs

  • In order to successfully spread awareness of eating disorders and reach a large audience with our message, we will need to spend money on both distribution and publicity efforts after the completion of the film. This will include submissions to film festivals, potential theatrical releases, press releases, and more.
  • Basically, every donation you make helps spread our message to more and more people! 

Pink Rose Other Ways You Can Help Pink Rose
