Director Biography - Bailey Plumley

Bailey Plumley is a student filmmaker currently based in Athens, Ohio, where he attends Ohio University's School of Film. While just beginning his filmmaking career, Bailey is a lifelong creative and has had a passion for cinema from a young age. As a filmmaker still very much finding his own voice, Bailey gravitates toward (but is not remotely limited to) character-driven narratives concerned with everyday human relationships and the roles of sex, gender, and queer identity in our daily lives.

Bailey plans to move to Los Angeles after graduation to continue pursuing work as a writer, director, and actor in the independent film scene.

Director Statement

Plain Jane began as a much shorter, simpler script, nearly devoid of dialogue and barely three pages long. I enjoyed the story so much that it quickly grew into something more. This is actually the largest-scale film I have made thus far, and, in that regard alone, I am very proud of it.

Plain Jane is a story that subverts many of its audience's expectations about its characters, their circumstances, and their identities, and I found telling it to be not only very fun but deeply rewarding. I hope my viewers will feel the same way.
