Bitch

Every woman in a position of power has been called a bitch at least once. Gina is no different, and to an outsider looking in, it may seem that she is a complete bitch of a boss, but the reality is that her employees are engaging in unethical activities and she's under a lot of pressure to figure out the truth and do what's right.

Director Biography - Robin Conly

Director Statement

This short is very different from any of my previous projects. It is similar to the types of
projects I was writing and directing during my film school days. For the last ten years, I have been either working in production and learning from every director I can, or directing independent family films. I am now focusing on directing shorts, so that I can be free to tell the types of stories I want to tell.

My goal for "Bitch" is for the audience to lack the normal empathy for Gina that one would have for a real person. After an act of violence is committed against her, I expect some audience members to even believe the bitch got what she deserved.
We then step back in time and get to know Gina over the previous 48 hour period in her life and we see the truth about what has really been going on.
My hope is that audience members will regret not empathizing with Gina.
