Hi, I'm Victoria, and I dream a lot. I had this particular dream in 2013, and knew instantly I wanted to put this dream to film. The story from the dream centers around young people consuming "normalized" beauty standards.

Mission Statement

Though "Kendall's Dream" is told through the eyes of one little girl, the film represents how different ages and generations of women and men perceive female value and beauty. The film is focused on the communicated messages through the generations.

The Story

I am thrilled to tell you about a film I’m working on!  On Saturday May 4th of this year I am partnering with Grace Church to premiere a short film.  This film tells the tale of an enchanted world a little girl stumbles upon only to discover the world holds a terrible secret.

This short film will explore the desensitization of a woman’s beauty through the eyes of a little girl, and will be using all local talent and locations for the making of the film.  Check out our 1-minute trailer to see what we’re up to.


Grace Church will be hosting a women’s conference that same day.  During the conference, women and girls are invited to hear guest speaker and Hollywood actress, Robia Scott, speak on areas of freedom she’s experienced in her life. 

I invite you to be a part of this exciting day.  Whether or not you plan to attend, there are different levels of finanical sponsorship available to support this endeavor.  Your sponsorship will not only help art thrive in our own community, but raise awareness for this powerful conference.  Join with me to reach $1,200 for this fund raising period lasting until the end of April to help make this film a success!
