About the Film
Odette is a horror comedy which explores classical elements of horror and fairytale while commenting on the world we know which is slowly being eaten by social media. The idea originally came from the writer’s sudden inspiration of what if the Swan Princess turned into something disgusting. It also explores archetypal tropes and poke fun at gender stereotypes.
I began writing this script while sitting at a desk job everyday and feeling frustrated with my career path. Then I realized that I didn't have to feel this frustration, I could create a story I loved and bring it to life with other passionate people! We have a great cast and crew involved. These are some of the people who's work I most admire and I know they will bring this story the depth and hilarity it deserves. This movie aims to take classic elements of horror, western, and comedy and create a social commentary on the world we are living in. Think Walking Dead meets Swan Princess with an infusion of pop culture. So tasty, they will soon be serving it at a Michelin star restaurant. Hopefully we can inspire others to create their own work and realize that you don't have to wait around for opportunity to find you, you can find it.
We will be filming in the beautiful Seacoast New Hampshire region. Our team is so excited to have THE PRESS ROOM as one of our locations, with the gracious hosting of the every delightful Bruce Pingree. If you love good music, definitely stop by in the evenings for one of their amazing musical guests, and they will be continuing their incredibly popular Shakebeerience series in the fall, which packs the upstairs with Shakespeare and alcohol fans alike. When you are in the Portsmouth area, be sure to check it out!
