A Single Woman's Guide to Life is a short film written by Jennifer Davidson and starring Alison McGirr Atwell. Inspired by public service films from the 1950's it tells the story of a vintage girl in a modern world. We need your help to assist us in telling this story, and to help us cover our costs for archive and post-production.

Jennifer Davidson is an experienced screenwriter with a background in documentary production and development. Her work includes Fair City, Seomra a Se for TG4 and the IFTA nominated young peoples series Primary School Musical Having spent ten years working for a number of Ireland’s top independent production companies, securing commissions for a wide range of programmes and production companies, her years spent encouraging other people to have their stories told on screen informs her work as a TV writer.

Alison McGirr Atwell is a talented Irish Australian actress whose credits include Penny Dreadful, Home and Away and Damaged. Now based in Dublin, a Single Woman's Guide To Life is her first foray into producing.

This short is an ambitious project, capturing themes that are close to our hearts. We wanted the opportunity to tell a strong female story in a stylised and cinematic way. This project was inspired by our love of all things vintage and in particular by the public service films of the 1950's that served as a guide for young woman as to how they should live their lives. This short is a modern take on that concept. The finished film will combine drama with archive footage from the 1950's.

Our Fund it campaign is to raise the money we need for post production and the archive element of this film. Between securing archive, editing costs and post sound, we're looking to raise €1500. We hope to have the film completed by mid-May in time to enter it onto the film festival circuit.

If you can fund us, all rewards will be delivered by the end of May.

We know this film is something special. We need your help to get it finished.
