About the film:
Buttons is a short film about Yuliana who, upon being fired from yet another job, attempts to overcome her phobia of clothing buttons by creating a fashion line in time for the world-renowned Medford Fashion Week. The film is about the internal experience of and social reaction to abnormal behavior. In genre, the film is a coming-of-age comedy-drama.
The film will play around with continuity and improvisation as it has a more point-of-view narrative perspective. Since this film is focused on trying new things, there will be more focus on fluidity and experimentation of acting, framing, sequencing, etc. The script will be a loose guide-- If there is a better way to do that than what is written in the script, we want to hear it!

About the role:
Yuliana has struggled with a phobia of clothing buttons since her childhood, which has led her a relatively isolated and unstable life. After being fired from her last job, she decides that she needs overcome her phobia head-on and decides to develop a fashion line to do so. She is peculiar both in personality and in style. Think Iris Apfel (best seen in the documentary IRIS).
