Adolescent’ s function is to harness and cultivate each young director’ s natural visual and story telling gift and to connect them with advertising agencies and brands looking for a unique and youthful voice for a wide range of projects.

JULIANNA (START)

Okay, this is enough. Guys, what are we doing?

Everyone looks at each other meaningfully.

JULIANNA (CONT’D) (inspirational)

 So what if people think we’re too old for trick-or-treating? I have fun when we do this every year.

We don’t need to grow up. We don’t need to be “cool teens” or anything else that we’re not.

We’re still teenagers, hell, we’re still kids. And we can have fun however we want.

Who cares what some conservative, judgmental suburban mom says!

                    EMILIA

          This was literally all your idea.
