Days Left

Addy’s Heart is a ‘coming of age’ drama with poetic elements that finds its beauty in that of reality. Addy is going through the momentous time of adolescents, struggling to find where she fits in the world. As an audience, I want you to be right there with her. Delve into the familiar world of a 13-year-old and feel for every awkward decision and primordial teenage angst. Addy’s heart will be real, raw, self-reflective and explore what it’s like to be young.

Hey, I’m Kellen James and I’m the director and writer of Addy’s Heart. From as long I can remember, I’ve always loved stories. I grew up reading books by Roald Dahl, Andy Griffiths, and Paul Jennings. From there, grew my love of all thing’s cinema. Right from
the start of my venture into filmmaking, it has been my goal to always respect the imagination and curiosity of the audience in the way I tell stories. I’m a film lover, a film student and because of your support, I am an emerging filmmaker.

A big inspiration for this film came from filmmakers and painters alike that explored in their medium, stories of family, growing up, and beauty in moments of life often taken for granted. We all have humble beginnings, and as a result, a story to tell. I want to take a moment in life, capture it for what it truly is, and present it to an audience so that they may be reminded of their humble beginnings as a kid stumbling towards adulthood. To be able to tell this story that is so near and dear to my heart, means the world to me and I would like to thank my supporters in advance.
