"Basic" is a very short film exploring the insecure lil' ho
in all of us. Starring Nelson Franklin (Veep, Abby's, Blackish), Georgia Mischak (Arrested Development, Love), and Chelsea Devantez (Bless This Mess, Abby's), who also wrote and directed. It’s a dark comedy exploring our nastyass petty side, and what it really means to be basic.
