We are very excited to announce that ‘Sarah Chong Is Going To Kill Herself’ has been greenlit by Creative England for its Funny Girls initiative, run in partnership with Big Talk and Baby Cow, as part of the BFI NET.WORK. The initiative aims to find “bold, entertaining and original stories” from new female screen comedy talent. The project was selected from around 240 applicants, after attending seminars by comedy writers such as The Inbetweeners’ Simon Bird and Man Up’s Tess Morris. See the Screen Daily announcement here.
Sarah Chong Is Going To Kill Herself is a surreal workplace fantasy in which a mal-treated receptionist decides to take matters into her own hands. Hands which may well contain grenades. It is written by Elaine Gracie, directed by Ella Jones and produced by Alexandra Blue. The short film will shoot in June this year.
