All Stars

Middle schools seems so easy for kids like Amelia while others like Katie feel they have to fight and cheat their way to the top or even just to the surface to be seen. But what happens when the two collide and both of their worlds come crumbling down? That's when you learn about true friendship. With support from your friends and belief in yourself, we can be All Stars.

I am 13 years old, and this is my second movie to write and film but the first to fully produce and submit to a festival. Everyone who worked on the film is in middle school except the music composer who is a college student and the editor who is a high school student. Even though we are middle schoolers, this was not a student project through school. My parents produced it, and this was a micro-budget production. Thank you very much for the opportunity.

Director Statement

As someone who just turned 13, I have to pull from my experiences and also my dreams. Classic films that show the every day challenges of middle school and high school have always inspired me. Writing, acting in, and directing this film gave me amazing opportunities to follow my vision all the way through to the final product. My hope with this film is to help anyone who is struggling to find where they belong. Friends can come from unlikely places. Take the help and encouragement and find your true self. I believe this film has given me a solid start in filmmaking, and I hope to continue making movies that inspire people to look inside themselves to find their true star. I want to thank the incredible cast, my school and others in my community for supporting me and this movie, my parents, and most of all I thank God for without Him nothing is possible.
