Graduating students of Seattle Central's Creative Academy is putting together a short thesis film to be submitted to film festivals this summer!
“What about Katie?” Is a dark comedy about a little girl who bludgeons her older sister in the head with a hammer and learns a valuable life lesson.

Katie hits her older sister in the head with a hammer. When her mom finds the sister’s dead body, Katie has a meltdown, until it turns out her sister is still alive. Katie tries to revive her, but her mom explains that she must finish what she started, for the sake of her older sister’s quality of life.

Note on Violence
As a dark comedy, the violence will be implied. This will not be gory or horror-esque.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
KATIE: 9-12 year old girl, Caucasian. Pesky baby sister--frustrated with being pigeonholed as the baby of the family. She eventually hits her old sister, CLAIRE, in the head with a hammer. Think Stephanie Tanner or Jan Brady.

CLAIRE: 12-16 years old girl, caucasian. Needs to look a few years older than ABBY. Typical older sister--follows the rules, gets annoyed by her younger sister, and a bit overbearing and controlling Think DJ Tanner or Marsha Brady.

MOM RICHARDSON: Late 30s - Early 50s. Woman, caucasian. Typical suburban housewife. Sweet, but mildly sociopathic. A touch of Stepford Wives.

DAD RICHARDSON: Late 30s - Early 50s. Man, caucasian. Typical suburban dad. Sweet, but agrees with his mildly sociopathic wife. In the vein of Eugene Levy.
