SYNOPSIS:A short film about growing up at your own pace. Three teens are going trick or treating when they are confronted with the problem that maybe they’re too old for this, and they spend the night trying to grow up and do stuff that “cool teens” do on Halloween. At the end, they realize they are fine the way they are and don’t have to grow up according to society’s rules.

Adolescent, helmed by Creative Director Ramaa Mosley and Executive Producer Hope Farley is a production collective dedicated to the representation and mentorship of directors aged 13- 27 years old for commercials, music videos and social media content. Many of the directors represented by Adolescent are accomplished professional photographers with published work, gallery and museum shows. Others are exceptional filmmakers in film programs across the country. A few were discovered outside of any program and are creative visionaries, shooting and posting their work on social media sites. All have a strong point of view that speaks directly to youth culture. Adolescent’ s function is to harness and cultivate each young director’ s natural visual and story telling gift and to connect them with advertising agencies and brands looking for a unique and youthful voice for a wide range of projects.

The girls stop running, doubled over to catch their breath.
Okay, this is enough. Guys, what are we doing?
Everyone looks at each other meaningfully.

So what if people think we’re too old for trick-or-treating? I have fun when we do this every year.
We don’t need to grow up. We don’t need to be “cool teens” or anything else that we’re not.
We’re still teenagers, hell, we’re still kids. And we can have fun however we want.
Who cares what some conservative, judgmental suburban mom says!
This was literally all your idea.
Point taken. (END)
