Kids and Politics

An 7year old boy, Trevor, gets tossed and turned in the grown up world of politics. His world view is defined by the voice of those that love him, his very republican parents. He trusts that they know best, and is excited to be a "Sheriff" for our Country. Trevor is caught up in fear and drama as his own classmates lash out at one another in their confusion of who is right and who is wrong. Trevor becomes confused by the strong statements made by people he looks up to, his democratic teacher and a pretty girl named, Brianna. Thankfully, he has a fair minded principal that knows Trevor needs a break and offers sound advice.

Director Biography - Katie O'Grady

Katie O’Grady’s first foray into producing was the critically acclaimed New York Times Critic’s Pick film Rid of Me, hand selected by Michael Moore for inclusion in his Traverse City Film Festival, and purchased by Showtime and Netflix following its festival and theatrical release. Ten years later, after producing several more features, 15 short films, a variety of PSAs, music videos & commercials, and teaching acting for more than a decade, Katie decided to try her hand at directing. She cut her teeth on commercials, with her first placing at an international competition, then moved quickly into short films, and is gearing up for her first feature later this year. Katie has also written several of the projects Alcove has produced, and is currently adapting a book into a feature screenplay. She is known and valued as a team player, and her abilities are highly regarded by everyone from first time clients she walks through the process to seasoned industry veterans with whom she collaborates.
