Girls Act Good’s first short film is a sassy girl-powered fantasy that explodes the myth of the perfect life, while giving the hopeful message that the only way forward is to be true to yourself.  After a mysterious loss, Cinderella’s picture perfect life is in tatters. Not yet ready to let go of the dream, Cinder enlists the help of a kickass Fairy Godmother as she tries to go back and fix the mistakes of her past but quickly learns happiness can only come when you look toward the future.
GAG are all very proud of this film but especially of their first time director, Constance Washington who with her divine four month old daughter strapped lovingly to the front of her as “1st AD”, worked from first rehearsal through to the final edit without batting an eyelid. Constance is a strong talented woman with a network of supportive, creative colleagues around her. Women who become mothers should be able to continue pursuing their passions and dreams, which is just one thing GAG is all about.
