NOTE: This project is an early prototype and is part of the Kaleidoscope Development Showcase. "BattleScar" is a linear film. The story is structured around a year in the journal of Lupe, a Nuyorican punk kid in 1978 Lower East Side in Manhattan. The audience navigates the story turning the pages of the book. Every page comes to life with pop-up dioramas completed with CG animation. Memories will come to life as we relive Lupe’s journal thru her own eyes, while we follow her relationship with Debbie, who is like her, a runaway kid living in the punk scene of the Bowery. We are living through challenging times. More than ever we need stories where women are the driving force.
