Deadeye

The story of aging female boxer, Kay Casey, and her desire to fight in the ring one last time.

Deadeye (2018) Short, Dramatic Action | 15 Mins.


Synopsis:

Deadeye tells the story of aging female boxer, Kay Casey, and her desire to fight in the ring one last time. While her body might be falling apart, her spirit continues to rage despite the torments of society and a manager who won't answer her phone calls. However, it would seems as if Kay has someone watching out for her and perhaps the tide will finally change.

Fun Fact:

For the final fight scene, my mother (who also plays Kay Casey) asked her square dancing friends if we could film a scene during their annual picnic... They agreed and we took over the party for an hour, instructing them to yell and scream obscenities'! We were all very surprised at how intense this group of aged square dancers became!
