The Ione shorts center around a character from one of my feature screenplays, White Wedding. In White Wedding Ione initially appears to be a “manic pixie dream girl” but soon we discover that she’s a driven woman with her own vision for her life that could include the main character, Mike, if he could just get over himself. I chose to shoot the Ione shorts to explore the Ione character outside of that film after starting to work with actress Kitty Ostapowicz and feeling that she embodies the character.
