Some celebrities go through their entire careers without getting into scandals, while others are destined to be caught in them all the time. No matter how much they avoid it, drama or any other problems may catch up to them eventually….
In this article we will be covering the details of the upcoming short film The Lost Cause: The Clara Florence story.
First things first, the character of Clara Florence is just one person that is made up of Amy wine house, Lady Gaga and Duffy. She’s a stylish and loves to party all the time, and seems to have a troubled past and present. Clara also has a drug addiction that includes a cocaine fueled past.
As for the title of the short film, “Lost Cause” meaning that no one is able to help anymore, not even she can help herself at this point. And has already been in so many scandals, that it makes it impossible to resurrect her dead career. Hence, fades into the oblivion.
For this short film, Director Ashley Nicole wants to make it clear that Just because someone happens to be famous and rich, doesn’t necessarily mean that their mental health and well being doesn’t matter. Because it does, just like everyone else’s.
“I’ve seen a lot of people on social media who say things like “oh he or she has money they’ll live, when that’s not even the point, people act like they care about mental health but when it’s somebody very well known it’s not important or doesn’t matter.
No matter you social status, or how much money you make. It doesn’t make your problems less. We all matter regardless, we’re all human.”
Another thing that this short film will focus on, will be how the media exploits the most personal and private struggles that celebrities go through, for people to read and see.
“Michael Jackson for example, the media took a very sweet and caring man and turned him into a circus freak…”
“Not to mention all the accusations that affected him mentally, and still to this day he is the target.” Says Nicole.
