What do you get when you combine filmmaking, social media and 15-year-old girls? Well there are a lot of things you can get from that combo, but in this case we get “Fan Girl.”
“Fan Girl” follows Telulah Farrow (Kiernan Shipka), an ironic high school sophomore who decides to bring her two passions together for a final project: making movies and her favorite band. In typical high school fashion, Telulah put off her film class project for too long –she was too busy trying to get All Time Low’s attention on social media– and ends up with just a few days to create a killer final project that could bring festival fame. As she scrambles to put her project together Telulah also gets a once in a lifetime chance to see her music idols in concert. So she formulates a plan to bring the two together. Accompanied by smart mouthed wing-girl Jamie (Kara Hayward), and her underachieving, super senior film class partner Darvan (Joshua Boone) she sets off to create the ultimate “fangirl” video.
We got a chance to talk to Shipka and the rest of the cast about the film and their own fangirl moments at the L.A Film Festival premiere for the movie. Check out some of the clips below (you can find all of them on our YouTube channel).
