    Re: Cynosure QF due Sept. 5

    why does she have to be tall? it's all relative.
    many actresses are tall as many actors* are short. you may not have much to worry about.

    *these are guys who couldn't get on the sports' teams in school so they took up drama.

    i honestly don't keep up with these youngsters but i found a few who have all "starred" in flicks.
    evan rachel wood is 23 and 5' 7"
    amanda bynes is 24 and 5' 8"
    dakota fanning is 16 and 5' 4"
    miley cyrus is 18 and 5' 5"

      She has to pass for a guy.

      Also, the issue is not just actresses of the right age and height, it's ones that have their own prodcos, since I can't get reps interested....

            I haven't been very active here lately (or at all) because I've been so immersed in various writing projects, the biggest of which (a book) I actually wrapped up today (yay).

            I'll try to comment & connect a bit more in the coming weeks so when AFF rolls around I'll be prepared to meet up with some of y'all.

              dontcha think being flat chested is more important than height?
              but you're not going to find many "young" actresses with production companies. the drew barrymore's in the industry are few and far between

              btw - amanda bynes did play the part of a boy in some flick

                  Thanks, yeah ... I'm pretty happy as this has been one long ass time coming. I'm also rather brain dead so my celebration consisted of a glass of kumbucha and a couple hours of depressing 9/11 footage. Woohoo!

                      These were people I went to directly -- can't get a rep interested. One actually told me this week that the script was "too good" for current studio buyers!

                      It's a hard sell -- period action-adventure with a young female lead. But for period it's got a modest budget (could do it for $5 million -- especially in BC).

                      So I keep working it and hoping....
                      Did you think of sending it to Kelly Reichardt? She's doing a period piece (Meek's Cutoff) now. Probably wouldn't want to do another period piece right away, but it might create a relationship if she likes your script. Unlike most indie directors, she usually works with a writer.

                        Any ideas on tall actresses in their early 20s?
                        Rebecca Hall is 5" 9". She's 28 and about to explode.

                          Pretty much... I just can't seem to help finding the humor in stories about whores, punks and junkies.
