Starring Trudy Poux, Tucker Poux, Piper Levine, Directed by Amy Poux, Produced by Northguild Production and HUDSY TV.
Part 1: "Do Nothings"
“DO NOTHINGS” part 1, is a 10-minute short film that introduces us to fourteen-year-old "Tamarin" (they/them) and their outsider best friend, "Alex" (she/her). The film takes place over one day and brings us into their bubble, an irrepressible escapade of dancing, vamping, gorging, and confessions. Torn between fitting in and forging their own paths, when Alex admits to vaping, it tests the strength of their friendship and the safe space the two of them have always known. Produced in 2019, DO NOTHINGS was Written/Directed by Amy Poux, Produced by Northguild Production and HUDSY, and starred Trudy Poux and Piper Levine. DO NOTHINGS is currently being submitted to festivals and has not yet been released.
Part 2: "I'm Okay"
"I'M OKAY" is the sequel to DO NOTHINGS. A 6-minute short, I'M OKAY finds "Tamarin" one year later, escaping high school and the social scene that will never accept them. Based in today's pandemic, we find "Tamarin" as they escape high school and the social scene that will never accept them; we meet "Jaden", "Tamarin's" brother, who has a terrible case of senioritis; and enter a sibling oasis that staves off the world outside for a moment. Written/directed by Amy Poux, starring Trudy Poux and Tucker Poux (cousins). Produced by HUDSY.
