MY SUMMER IS A GOTH is a film written by Brandon L. Roberts, and co-produced by Roberts and Tara Johnson-Medinger in association with Johnson-Medinger's Portland-based film company Sour Apple Films. Filming is slated to begin in June 2012. The film is about 16 year-old Joey Javitts, who is sent by her frustrated parents to live with her eccentric grandparents for the summer. She falls for the beguiling Goth boy next door, Victor, embarking on a summer that will change her young life-- learning about first love, heartbreak, herself and her family along the way.
Nice catchy trailer for this indie movie! But there's a little problem with it. The makers of this movie need to raise funds to shoot it.
The Lady Of Manners (Jillian Venters ) of The Gothic Charm School you all sure know about, is fully supporting this project. (Go read gothiccharmschool.com for more info).
"The Lady of the Manners would love to see more positive Goth characters in media. The few that have appeared in movies, TV, and books are a great start, but not enough. The characters of Joey and the flock of Goth kids that take her under their wings are delightful, but more importantly, they’re real. They’re people that you can relate to, whether you’re a Goth or just someone who feels misunderstood. And make no mistake, Snarklings: at some point in their lives, everyonefeels misunderstood and like they don’t fit in. It’s a universal state of being that crosses all subcultures and stereotypes. My Summer As A Goth addresses those feelings, and that struggle to define yourself, with truth and humor."
